With Prison Privatization Plan on Hold, GEO Group Website Still Vying for Contract
Poor GEO Group. The Boca Raton-based private prison operator, former known as Wackenhut Corrections, had planned to invest $3 million in its quest to win a contract to run most of the prisons in the southern part of Florida.
"The State of Florida is considering the privatization of 29 state-owned correctional facilities, work camps and work release centers in South Florida and GEO is excited for the opportunity to grow in Florida. Our World Headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida is located in the heart of Region IV facilities and is less than a two hour drive away from almost every facility in Region IV. GEO would be honored to add the Florida Department of Corrections' employees to the GEO Family of over 20,000 professionals worldwide."
