Corrections
Overview


The Maryland Correctional Administrators Association (MCAA) is an organization of correctional professionals founded in the 1960's. The membership is comprised of professionals working in adult correctional detention centers, adult community correctional facilities or any adult place of confinement as defined by Title 12, Subtitle 14 of the Code of Maryland Administrative Regulations. Membership also includes other allied local and state agencies.



Mission & Vision

The mission of the MCAA is to provide opportunities for the development of skills, knowledge and initiatives, to maintain the integrity of corrections throughout the State of Maryland.

The MCAA vision is committed to providing continuous improvement in corrections for the purpose of promoting enhanced public safety in Maryland.

Association Goals

Goals are to enhance public safety by promoting the best interest of each jurisdiction through:
  • Improved operations;
  • Improved training and working conditions; and

  • Promote and encourage the development of staff training, resources and training programs. * Facilitate the coordination of operational activities between agencies, the collection and analysis of relevant data and sponsor research.
  •  Encourage and promote the development, implementation and refinement of effective community release, alternatives to incarceration and reintegration programs.
  •  Coordinate technical assistance between correctional agencies for the development of appropriate and adequate correctional resources.
