Donald W. Wyatt Detention Facility Scores 3-Year Accreditation and Among Highest Rated in the United States
Date:4/4/2008

"Nearly Perfect" Score by the American Correctional Association Auditors

Earns High Praise From Board Chair Romanowicz

CENTRAL FALLS, R.I., April 4, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- After an exhaustive three-day audit and examination by the American Correctional Association Commission on Accreditation, the Central Falls Detention Facility Corporation is pleased to report that the Donald W. Wyatt Detention Facility has passed with a 99.7% rating. This gives the facility a three-year reaccreditation status for the fourth time in its 15-year history and marks its consistent accredited status since 1995 when the facility applied for its first rating.

A seasoned team of correctional practitioners led by Kaye Harris, RN/BS, a career Federal Bureau of Prisons employee, conducted the comprehensive and intensive three-day audit. Together, the team represented a combined experience of over 100 years in senior level correctional management.

Through accreditation, an agency is able to maintain a balance between protecting the public and providing an environment that safeguards the life, health and safety of staff and offenders. Standards set by the ACA reflect practical up-to-date policies and procedures, and function as a management tool for more than 1,500 correctional agencies in the United States.

The Wyatt Facility was tested against 384 applicable standards listed in the ACA's Adult Local Detention Facilities Manual, 4th Edition, on virtually all aspects of correctional operations, from security and physical plant to use of force; medical; programs; and food services. Of the 384 standards, 60 are mandatory life safety and must be passed. The one standard where the facility did not fully comply was minor, related to the number of showerheads in a newly constructed living POD. The Wyatt has addressed it, and is finishing this installation; and will appeal this specific finding before May 2008, when the formal commission award is present
