Academy of Prisons & Correctional Administration
Academy of Prisons & Correctional Administration (APCA) is the pioneering institute in the world to train prison and correctional officers, who are working in the Criminal Justice System of India. The efforts put forth by the four Southern State Governments viz., Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala, materialised on 01.10.1979. Its aim is to train prison and correctional officers of South India and other states in general, at cost.
On 3.1.2001, the history of RICA was rewritten to meet the present day challenges of Prisons and Correctional Administration in which the emphasis is laid-down on pragmatic lines including the Co-operation and Co-ordination of training aspects of the Police and Judiciary.
