Welcome to PACCOA

The Probation and Community Corrections Officers Association (PACCOA) provides an Australian wide opportunity for professionals responsible for the management of criminals to discuss developments and changes within the field of practice.  As an organisation we support the development of professional skills, enabling members to participate in training opportunities within Australia and internationally via a sponsorship process; in addition to developing and presenting a three day conference every two years. PACCOA is linked to similar organisations in the United States and Europe.  PACCOA is affiliated with the New South Wales Probation and Parole Officers Association (PPOA) and members joining the PPOA have access to PACCOA via their PPOA membership.

You may become a member of PACCOA by completing the membership and salary deduction form available on this page ’become a member’. Individuals with an interest in this field (although not working in the area) may join PACCOA as an associate member (contact us for more details).

Organisations may establish a formal link to PACCOA (contact us for more details).

The website is a tool for members and others seeking information about the management of criminals in the community.  If you would like to provide us with feedback on what has been useful and what might be useful please ’have your say’.

Members are encouraged to register and update their details here.
