APCARS is composed of roughly 200 professionals, of whom 130 are employees, and gathers around 20 volunteer administrators.
These administrators actively participate, each within their respective field of competency, to the development of our association and for which we wholeheartedly thank them.
This contribution is particularly noticeable in our Developmental Mission Statement, which addresses concrete challenges that are of public interest and shared by our judicial partners, namely lawyers, judges, and the Penitentiary Integration and Probation Department.
Each and every one of our administrators uphold our association’s founding values and principles
- Humanism and dignity
- Ethics and professionalism
- Rigor and efficiency
- Objectivity et responsibility
