Arizona Correctional Industries (ACI) was created by the Arizona Legislature in 1969, operating under the acronym "ARCOR" (Arizona Correctional) until 1987, and received appropriated funds to support its operations. Today, ACI is a vibrant self-funded business within the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation and Reentry (ADCRR).

ACI creates innovative solutions and products for customers while helping thousands of inmates. Working in safe, positive work and learning environments, inmates gain skills that will help them secure employment upon their release — many in highly skilled trades. The compensation inmates earn can go toward savings for their release, family/child support and restitution funds.



Safer communities through effective corrections.

Support ADCRR's Vision, serve as a resource for the public sector and private businesses throughout the state, and operate successful business enterprises that help the inmates acquire occupational skills and experience.


To create opportunities for offenders to develop marketable skills and good work habits through enterprises that produce quality products and services for our customers while achieving our revenue, profit and inmate work increase objectives.
