Video: Winston County Correctional Facility Passes Audit
WINSTON COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI)-The Winston Choctaw County Regional Correctional Facility has been making serious changes to protocol.
The facility has been on probation after an accreditation audit by the American Correctional Association or ACA, in the spring revealed documentation issues.
Staff at the facility began to make immediate procedural changes.
Those efforts are paying off
An ACA auditor returned to inspect the facility this week and found the facility and its procedures to be in full compliance.
Local officials will attend a panel hearing with the ACA in Tampa, Florida in February to maintain the full accreditation but this week’s visit was a major step toward removing probationary status of the facility.
