“Akal Security is the most reliable security company that the ECC/SPC El Centro facility has had working here in the past five years. Their supervisors and officers are courteous and professional, well-trained and knowledgeable of all aspects of the facility operations.
Due to their hard work, the facility passed the American Correctional Association (ACA) Inspection with a score of 97.3 percent out of 100 percent. The facility also passed the National Detention Standards (NDS) Inspection with a 38 out of 38 standards.
I personally thank, not only Akal Security but also every one of their supervisors and officers for a job well done.”
- Michael Magee, AFOD, ECC/SPC, Department of Homeland Security, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Division, El Centro, CA
