FACC History and Mission
The Florida Association of Community Corrections was established in 1992 to provide a vehicle for county probation programs to come together to identify, develop and promote effective programs. The goal was to offer a high standard of training there by increasing the professionalism of personnel as well as increase public awareness of the benefits of these programs. FACC's goals also include encouraging communication and cooperation among agencies and to initiate and support legislation that advances the efforts of prevention, reduction and deterrence of criminal and delinquent behavior. Since 1992 the FACC membership has grown to include a wide range of community corrections specialties such as juvenile justice, substance abuse, residential programs, pre-trial services, diversion programs and victim services. In addition to many private and public county probation programs, the membership now includes staff from correctional agencies such as the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, Florida Department of Corrections, U.S. Probation, a number of Sheriff Offices, as well as various private providers of substance abuse and other rehabilitative services.
FACC has eliminated the membership fee so that all community corrections professionals can now join FACC and have full access to the FACC website as well as receive the FACC newsletter and event announcements at no charge.
