Why should I join the Texas Jail Association? What are the benefits?

TJA offers numerous benefits to its members. The member is offered annual training with the latest national, state, and local corrections information. They are offered regional training and development seminars as well as State Legislative updates and input. TJA gives its members an opportunity to share ideas and network with other corrections professionals. TJA also produces a newsletter, Key Issues, covering important developments in the correctional industry.

What should I expect to see or gain from attending the Annual Conference?

TJA's Annual Training Conference, now held each year in Austin, focuses on professional training for its members. Several of the many topics covered during the three day session are Texas Commission on Jail Standards Updates, Texas Department of Criminal Justice Updates, Legal Issues for Jails, Texas Legislative Updates, Jail Security Issues, and much more. Regional training is proved by the association on several occasions throughout the state. Participants receive a certificate of completion for each training program, as well as TCLEOSE credit. In an effort to provide information to jail staff that are not able to attend the annual Training Conference, TJA is committed to providing the latest and most up to date information.
