Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission
An accreditation program has long been recognized as a means of maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. Accreditation is the certification by an independent reviewing authority that an entity has met specific requirements and prescribed standards. Schools, universities, and hospitals are some of the most well known organizations that are required to maintain accreditation. Agencies with Pretrial Release and Probation can achieve accredited status through the Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission, Inc.
These Commissions meet three times per year to oversee the accreditation program and to officially accredit agencies that have passed the rigorous review process.
Manatee County is one of only three agencies in Florida to obtain the probation portion of the accreditation process.
