Welcome to the SDCA homepage!  The SDCA is an association made up of corrections professionals throughout the state of South Dakota.  We are made up of human services professionals, Court Service Officers, Juvenile Corrections Agents, Parole Agents, Jail and Prison staff, law enforcement officers and staff from private run facilities that serve consumers in and around our state. The SDCA holds two conferences per year to help all corrections staff become better equipped to do their jobs, while also providing a great way for members to build relationships with other professionals throughout the state.
