ACA Welcomes Its Newest Affiliate.

The National Major Gang Task Force (NMGTF) became the 37th professional affiliate of the American Correctional Association (ACA) at its 2001 Winter Conference. NMGTF is an organization devoted to networking, training and establishing information-sharing standards regarding gangs, as well as security threat group (STG) management in correctional settings.

NMGTF received national recognition in the criminal justice system for its uniqueness in gang intervention and management strategies. NMGTF has developed a national correction al informational-sharing system that links all 50 state correctional systems, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, major jails, law enforcement, and probation and parole offices across the country. The NMGTF Executive Board has provided valuable technical assistance in the development of statewide STG programs and is nationally recognized for achieving uniqueness in gang intervention and management strategies. The new executive director is Edward Cohn of Indiana.

NMGTF will host its seventh annual conference at Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Conn., June 17-20. The conference will include workshops on progressive technology, national model programs, educational information, programming, population management, intelligence, mail systems, facility design and much more. For more information about the conference, contact Matt Conway at (860) 763-7352.

ACA welcomes NMGTF as a professional affiliate and looks forward to a great partnership.
