NJACA remembers Past President, Gary Hilton Sr., 1940 - 2017 

Gary’s distinguished career in Corrections spanned over 37 years. He was a charter member of the NJACA, and was a proponent of correctional professional organizations.  He has been the recipient of numerous awards and commendations from various professional and governmental organizations, including a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Correctional Association. We are grateful for Gary’s dedication and service to the field of Corrections.
