CCA - Corrections Corporation of America

CCA - Corrections Corporation of America



"Our founders were creative, flexible and adaptable, and these extraordinary qualities still guide us today. CCA employees continue to make this company a success through the very same values on which the company was founded more than 30 years ago." - John Ferguson, CCA Chairman of the Board

 

 

CCA founded the private corrections management industry three decades ago, establishing industry standards for future-focused, forward-thinking correctional solutions. A commitment to innovation, efficiency, cost effectiveness and achievement has made the company the partnership corrections provider of choice for federal, state and local agencies since 1983.

As a full-service corrections management provider, we specialize in the design, construction, expansion and management of prisons, jails and detention facilities, along with residential reentry services, as well as inmate transportation services through its subsidiary company TransCor America. We are the fifth-largest corrections system in the nation, behind only the federal government and three states. CCA houses nearly 70,000 inmates in more than 70 facilities, the majority of which are company-owned, with a total bed capacity of more than 80,000. CCA currently partners with all three federal corrections agencies (The Federal Bureau of Prisons, the U.S. Marshals Service and Immigration and Customs Enforcement), many states and local municipalities.

 

Since our inception, CCA has maintained its market leadership position in private corrections, managing more than 40 percent of all adult-secure beds under contract with such providers in the United States. The company joined the New York Stock Exchange in 1994 and now trades under the ticker symbol CXW.

 

Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, CCA employs more than 13,000 professionals nationwide in security, academic and vocational education, health services, inmate programs, facility maintenance, human resources, management and administration. We are proud of the distinctions of having been named among “America’s Best Big Companies” by Forbes magazine and ranked number one in the publication’s “Business Services and Supplies” category and having been consistently named by G.I. Jobs magazine as a “Top Military-Friendly Employer.”  Being a part of the community also provides valuable economic benefits to our partners by paying property, sales and other taxes, and providing a stable employment base that focuses on building careers with unlimited growth and development opportunities. As a strong corporate citizen, recognized by Corporate Responsibility Officer magazine, CCA contributes generously to host communities through volunteerism and charitable giving.

 

We offer offenders a variety of dynamic evidence-based reentry and rehabilitation programs, including education, addictions treatment, GED preparation and testing, post-secondary studies, life skills, employment training, recreational options, faith-based services and work opportunities.

 

As an enhanced focus on reentry, CCA's community corrections facilities, specializing in providing work furlough, housing and rehabilitation in residential reentry centers. Our work is grounded in providing hope, direction and the best possible opportunity and environment for offenders within the communities we serve. We offer government agencies responsive, innovative and cost-effective solutions for offenders, including a variety of rehabilitation and education programs, including substance abuse treatment using the cognitive behavioral approach, a specialized women’s program, onsite Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous meetings, life skills lessons, employment readiness, cultural diversity workshops, release planning and assistance in re-establishing family ties.

 

What We Do, and How We Do It: CCA's Human Rights Policy Statement

 

CCA’s Human Rights Policy Statement directly supports the company’s mission of advancing corrections through innovative results that benefit and protect all we serve.

 

 

“The principles in the statement inform our highest level decisions and serve as ground rules for our work each day,” said Scott Craddock, CCA Corporate Ethics and Compliance Officer. “Every one of us should be familiar with it.”

 

The statement’s first sentence sets a strong, clear first principle for all of us: "At CCA, we recognize the inherent dignity of the human person and the need to treat every individual with respect."

 

As Ethics and Compliance staff conduct training at every facility this year, talking about the Human Rights Policy Statement, they’ve found that the core ideas of respect and dignity are understood and expected by staff across facilities. Craddock observed, “We are truly impressed with how clearly and powerfully so many of our facility leaders and staff recognize the value of human dignity, and the importance — to themselves and to the people in our care — of upholding that by treating every person in our care respectfully, as a human being.

 

"We recognize the inherent dignity of the human person and the need to treat every individual with respect. As we have since our inception, we share the responsibility of our government partners when they entrust individuals to our care."

Damon T. Hininger
President & Chief Executive Officer
