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
