Kintock is extremely pleased to announce that its Bridgeton, New Jersey program successfully underwent re-accreditation during an audit by the American Correctional Association (ACA) and achieved an outstanding perfect score of 100 percent on both mandatory and non-mandatory applicable standards.
“The entire staff at Bridgeton always demonstrates incredible teamwork in everything they do, not just in preparing for the ACA audit, but throughout the year. They [staff] truly value the importance of the services we provide and are dedicated to ensuring the highest quality of life for our residents while also making sure to adhere to all company and ACA standards,” said Nicole Cucinotta, Corporate Compliance Officer.
The two-day audit took place in October 24th and 25th at the Bridgeton Residential Program and was conducted by two ACA auditors. The accreditation certificate will be awarded in January 2019 at the ACA Winter Conference.
The auditors noted that it is evident that Kintock staff makes security a priority at the Bridgeton facility and really cares about the safety of the residents, staff and greater community, according to Ms. Cucinotta.
The American Correctional Association and the Commission on Accreditation for Corrections are private, non-profit organizations that administer the only national accreditation program for all components of adult and juvenile corrections. Accreditation is achieved through a series of reviews, evaluations, surveys and audits conducted by qualified ACA auditors. Programs are required to undergo the audit process every three years to maintain ACA accreditation status.
