Excellent Score for Kentucky Prison
Frankfort, KY – Green River Correctional Complex (GRCC) received excellent scores during their re-accreditation process with the American Correctional Association (ACA).
The prison began their audit on Monday, April 3 and completed the audit process today with a score of 100% on the mandatory standards and 99.54% on non-mandatory standards. This is one of the highest scores in the history of the institution. GRCC is a medium security facility that opened in 1994 and has a present population of 967 inmates.
Warden Patti Webb and her staff were praised for their hard work and dedication. The accreditation panel complimented the facility for its outstanding sanitation, well-trained staff and teamwork. “I commend the employees at GRCC for their diligence and dedication to detail,” said Commissioner John D. Rees.
ACA consists of more than 500 national standards that cover security, operational and programming aspects of a prison and require constant monitoring and quality control checks. Each prison is audited by ACA every three years and has an inter-departmental audit (Program Security Review) every year. Kentucky has been a member of ACA since the early 1980s.
