GDC - Riverbend Correctional Facility - GEO
GDC - Riverbend Correctional Facility - GEO is part of the private prison partnership companies that are the providers of correctional, detention, and community reentry services with hundreds of facilities, and a couple hundred thousand beds. They may own the actual facility or manage the property on behalf of the local, state or federal government agency on a contract basis. They commit inmates and then pay a monthly or daily rate for each prisoner confined in the facility.
Their goal is to serve those assigned to their care through a wide range of diversified services including the design, construction and financing of state and federal prisons, detention centers, community reentry facilities, and other special needs institutions as well as the provision of community supervision services, with cutting-edge electronic monitoring technologies.
Federal and state government has a long history of contracting out specific services to private firms, including medical services, food preparation, vocational training, and inmate transportation. As the prison population has expanded from new immigration initiatives and the "war on drugs" from the 80s the governments' increased use of incarceration has caused prison overcrowding and an ever-increasing burden on local, state, and federal governments to control costs.
