OCCD Passes Two Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission (FCAC) Audits with Flying Colors this Month

Orange County, Fla. – The Orange County Corrections Department (OCCD) successfully navigated its way through two FCAC Audits this month. This year’s audits presented a unique challenge since they had to be conducted virtually due to the pandemic. This new wrinkle did not in any way stop staff from exceeding expectations.

The first FCAC Audit was a deep dive into Pretrial and Probation on August 13 and 14. Next came an overall audit of the facilities and its operations on August 25 -27, 2020. The agency emerged from both audits with glowing reviews and numerous accolades.

In the closing session of the second audit, Chief Louis A. Quiñones, Jr. told the team of external auditors, “I wish you could have been here. We are very proud of who we are. We are the and we’re glad you validated that.”

The Chief thanked the staff that are out there on the frontlines every day and all the various departments involved as well as the PACU team. “It takes a lot to be inspection ready every day, and on behalf of the Deputy Chiefs and the entire leadership team, I thank them for their commitment,” he said.

The Chief ended in expressing his pride for what the department has been able to accomplish in these unprecedented times. Kudos to all.
