Holmes CI among nine FDC prisons to earn reaccreditation

TALLAHASSEE — Holmes Correctional Institution in Bonifay is among nine Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) correctional institutions reaccredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA) during the recent American Correctional Association Commission on Standards and Accreditation panel hearings.

“Despite the unique challenges faced by correctional professionals this past year, FDC staff demonstrate resiliency and never cease to ensure our facilities meet and exceed nationally recognized professional standards. Earning an ACA accreditation is a testament of their devotion to maintaining a safe, professional and humane correctional system,” said Secretary Mark Inch. “Join me in commending these exceptional professionals and celebrating their achievement as nationwide leaders in corrections.”

Over the last year, ACA audit teams from across the country visited Apalachee, Liberty, Hamilton, Baker, Columbia, Okeechobee, Holmes and Calhoun Correctional Institutions and conducted comprehensive on-site audits of all aspects of prison operations. 

Each of these institutions were 100 percent compliant in mandatory standards, earning their respective reaccreditations. 

As FloridaÂ’s largest state agency, the Department of Corrections employs approximately 24,000 members statewide, incarcerates approximately 80,000 inmates and supervises nearly 145,000 offenders in the community.
