APCTO is the non-profit association which represented, in years past when the association was active, a broad array of correctional and treatment services offered throughout the United States and around the world. Based on the observations that there was not a huge need for such an organization, the members of the association (e.g. academics, non-profit, for profit, service providers, government officials, students, and individuals) collectively decided in 2008 to disband the formal membership and hierarchy of the association. The former APCTO members decided to reserve the option to come back together, should a need arise.
At this point, the Facility Database is being kept current by Management & Training Corporation.
In its 40-year history in North America, contractors, and government partners in the corrections and treatment industry continue to help bring down costs, improve quality, and increase accountability. Here is an example of how this important public-private partnership has produced these three key benefits.
