The Pima County Sheriff’s Department proudly announces the department received accreditation from the National Institute for Jail Operations (NIJO) on June 7th at the Western Regional Conference. The Corrections Bureau completed a process of reviews and inspections related to operations and facilities led by the NIJO team. This successful process reflects our department’s commitment to leading edge strategies in all of our functions. Equally important is our dedication in providing the most professional, safe, and secure services for the community. This is accomplished when inmates are housed in humane conditions and when the highest standards are adhered to by the security features and staff training. The NIJO accreditation recognizes the department’s commitment and dedication to these standards.
