SCI Pine Grove held its mock audit on June 20 in preparation for their American Correctional Association (ACA) audit in September.

Staff from SCIs Benner Township, Camp Hill, Fayette, Forest, Greene, Houtzdale, Laurel Highlands, Mercer, Quehanna, Smithfield and Somerset assisted in the mock audit. 

A mock audit is a walkthrough of the physical plant of the facility where individuals look for any deficiencies that can be addressed before the actual audit. Mock audits are held approximately four to six weeks prior to the actual ACA audit. Officials review areas directly related to the mandatory expected practices that address life, health and safety. Some of the areas include, but are not limited to:

  • physical plant
  • tool control
  • toxic/caustic inventories
  • fire/safety and sanitation
  • food codes
  • access to health care
  • conditions of confinement
  • inmate and staff morale
  • security
  • mandatory training
