The GEO Group, Inc. (NYSE: GEO) commented on the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) announcement regarding contracted prisons for the Federal Bureau of Prison (the “BOP”). GEO has had a long standing private-public partnership with the BOP that dates back to the 1990s. At the federal level, GEO’s facilities have a proven track record of providing cost-effective, high quality services for those entrusted to GEO’s care.
While the company was disappointed by today’s DOJ announcement, the impact of this decision on GEO is not imminent. As acknowledged in the announcement, the BOP will continue, on a case-by-case basis, to determine whether to extend contracts at the end of their contract period.
Notwithstanding today’s announcement, GEO will continue to work with the BOP, as well as all of our government partners, in order to ensure safe and secure operations at all of our facilities. Additionally, GEO will continue its efforts to provide industry-leading offender rehabilitation programs and reentry services with the objective of reducing recidivism and ensuring individuals successfully transition back into local communities. GEO provides high-quality, diversified services across all segments of the correctional and community reentry services spectrum in the United States as well as internationally.

Zoley, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Brian R. Evans, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, David Donahue, President, GEO Corrections & Detention, and Ann Schlarb, President, GEO Care.
