Wackenhut Corrections Selected For Oklahoma Project By Prison Task Force
The task force, which is made up of city, county and chamber officials, passed a resolution to encourage state and local elected officials to support Wackenhut Corrections in gaining a contract with the State of Oklahoma.
Dr. George C. Zoley, vice chairman and chief executive officer of Wackenhut Corrections said that the company "is committed to develop a correctional facility in Comanche County to hold prisoners for the State of Oklahoma. The public support we have received from the community for this project has been gratifying. Given the state's need for more prison beds, this will be a 'win-win' situation for the state and the community."
Wackenhut Corrections, based in Palm Beach Gardens, was founded in 1984, and is a world leader in the privatized correction industry. The company has awards/contracts to manage 35 facilities in North America, Europe and Australia with a total of over 24,500 beds, and additional contracts for facility design, construction and maintenance; as well as secure prisoner transportation.
