The McHenry County Correctional Bureau is proud to be accredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA). There are only 4 county jails in the state of Illinois which have achieved accreditation and we are proud to be one of them. To be accredited by the ACA, a facility must prove adherence to the following principles:

  • Humanity
  • Justice
  • Protection
  • Opportunity
  • Knowledge
  • Competence
  • Accountability

These principles are essential to the foundation of sound corrections policy and effective public protection.
