Topic: Security Central / Are gangs running our prisons?

They are running the prison i work at simply because there is not enough “heart” to deal with them

Topic: The Club House / Public or Private?

I have worked for the BOP and for the GEO Group. There are good and bad about both. Privates are forced to manage their budgets effectively, but are quicker to deal with equipment shortages and staff issues than public prisons. I have never seen a situation where a program or inmate need was dropped based soley on a budget issue.

Topic: The Club House / Private Prisons

I work for the Geo Group and the some problems that plague the state system effect the privates. and the benifits are pretty good compared to other places. There is a double standard when it comes to comparing privates to publics that eventually you get used to. The state tends to send you the inmates they dont want to deal with and then compare you to the state facilities when your level of violence is higher then the state facilities. There is a strong message to stay within your budget and focus on wastefull practices that the state facilities dont have to worry about. The one thing that is better is that if you need something like equipment you dont have to wait as long as the state facilities do. You also can address issues like practices and procedures that dont work, you can also address staff problems alot quicker than the state can. I have worked on both sides and can tell you i wont work in state corrections again.
