About Us

Arizona Correctional Industries (ACI) is part of the Arizona Department of Corrections’ (ADC) Division of Inmate Programs and Reentry. Created in April 2016, this new division is the most significant reorganization to the agency’s management structure in over five years. The move followed months of research, collaboration and discussions.

“This new structure reflects an increased emphasis on preparing state inmates for successful return to our communities,” said ADC Director Charles Ryan. “It improves our coordination of services to ensure we make the best use of taxpayer resources.”
