Little Sandy Correctional Complex Receives Perfect Audit Score
Little Sandy Correctional Complex (LSCC) in Sandy Hook has received a perfect audit score on their American Correctional Association (ACA) audit.
LSCC filed an appeal on the one ACA standard that was found to be non-compliant on their July 2013 audit. Following the appeal, the ACA accreditation committee found in favor of LSCC and changed their score from 99.8 to 100 percent. The score change resulting from this appeal makes this the third consecutive 100 percent score achieved by LSCC.
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 1980’s.
