Training: National Institute Of Corrections

NICIC provides training, technical assistance, information services, and policy/program development assistance to federal, state, and local corrections agencies. It also awards funds to support its program initiatives, and provides leadership to influence correctional policies, practices, and operations nationwide in areas of emerging interest and concern to correctional executives and practitioners as well as public policymakers.
