Salley To Represent CCSO In South Africa

CCSO Chief of Corrections Scott Salley is among a delegation of corrections professionals that have been selected to participate in bilateral exchanges with their counterparts in South Africa under the auspices of People to People Ambassador Programs and the American Correctional Association.

Chief Salley is one of eleven corrections professionals who will participate and interact with various South African diplomats. The delegation will convene in South Africa for the last two weeks of October. The specialized topics of interest and expertise are public safety; inmate medical and mental health treatment; staff safety; inmate safety; inmate education and programming and staff training.
The trip comes without cost to CCSO. Chief Salley will use vacation time and pay his own expenses.

Founded in 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower as a vehicle to expand international relations beyond the structure of government agencies, People to People International is a non-political, private-sector organization dedicated to promoting international understanding between nations. Following the delegation’s return, a journal of events will be composed for both the American Correctional Association and People to People International, identifying similarities in professions and possible recommendations for the future.
