We Are CCA

Our company – the first of its kind – was founded in 1983. Our approach to public-private partnership in corrections combines the cost savings and innovation of business with the strict guidelines and consistent oversight of government. This has produced proven results for more than three decades.

Our company designs, builds, manages and operates prisons, jails, detention centers and residential reentry centers on behalf of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the United States Marshals Service, many states and counties across the country.

We benefit America by protecting public safety, employing the best people in solid careers, preparing inmates for reentry, giving back to communities, and bringing innovative security to government corrections – all while consistently saving hardworking taxpayers' dollars.

We are America’s Leader in Partnership Corrections.
