Prisoners from Vermont will be transferred to Mississippi next month.
CoreCivic Inc. announced that it has entered into a new contract with the Vermont Department of Corrections to house up to 350 of the State’s inmates at the Company’s 2,672-bed Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility in Tutwiler, Mississippi.
The new management contract begins on October 1, and has an initial term of two years, with one additional two-year extension option.
“We are pleased to work closely with the Vermont Department of Corrections once again,” said Damon Hininger, CoreCivic’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We strive to provide flexible solutions to our government partners and believe the Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility is well suited to meet the needs of Vermont’s inmate populations.”
Based on the company’s expectations of contract utilization, they expect it to generate approximately $6.5 million of annual revenue.
In June, an agreement between the U.S. Marshals and CoreCivic sent “up to 1,350” inmates to the Tallahatchie Facility.
