Welcome to the Georgia Jail Association!
The Georgia Jail Association is an organization comprised of professionals from all levels of operations and related government agencies. The members share the common goal of improving all Georgia jails, regardless of size of location.
The GJA is organized into five geographic regions throughout the state to ensure balanced representation and facilitate effective communication and coordination.
The purposes of GJA are to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, information and techniques, to advance professionalism through training, technical assistance, publication and conferences; the Georgia Sheriff’s instill our jail standards and presents those standards through training, information exchange, programs and services that GJA supports.
The GJA fosters fellowship and promotes networking as tools to address mutual operational problems and needs.
