Thanks for the response, Racks. I don’t understand either, but I’m trying to figure it out.

At this moment in time my understanding is that “they” are looking at privatizing sections such as maybe food service and/or medical. Right now they’re only looking at it, but it’s one of the things on the table.

One of the Marion Joints here… personally dont beleive privatization will fly. Look at LaECI’s cost per day the check out RiCI, Belmont, or NCCI’s. All 3 state institutions are (or were as of this posting) less per day per inmate, and all have 2000 plus inmates versus 1500 or so at Lake Erie. How the hell do they figure they are saving money?

HEY SHAKEY What do you think happened to Mick, Comfortable Numb, and some of the others who used to at least check in here now and again? They seem to have disappeared.

Not ONLY because of pay. There’s a lot more to be considered. What do you guys who work in private prisons think of Ohio going partially private? Are there any posters who work in a private joint here?

I’ve tried several times to make a coherent response to this thread but always climb up on a soap box get carried away.

I think it depends on what private agency is running the institution. I haven’t heard anything bad about North Fork, but LCF and DCF are often referred to as “Gladiator School” (also private). I’ve heard numerous war stories about Lawton, haven’t heard as much about Davis recently, but it has it’s history. Arkansas was using Wackenhut (spelling?) for a while, but things got so bad that the state took over all private prisons. I do agree with FordSVT that corrections should be uniform, either all state ran, or all private ran by the same company under one contract.

I know that this is a older post but being a Correctional Officer at a private prison – North Fork Correctional Facility (CCA) Sayre, OK. Private Prisons work for some states and for some states they do not work. In most cases private prisons does not take over the state system. It does save the state alot of money and in most cases the security and treatment of the inmates are the same if not better. If anyone would like more information feel free to let me know.

These types of situations never work. Same as private healthcare, in Canada anyway.
Does anyone have deep enough pockets to run an institution? Or even want to??
Corrections needs to be uniform across the board from state to state and Provinces as well.
