Prisons & Correctional Facilities Summit Will showcase high level government executives, their capability requirements and acquisition priorities.
The US incarcerates more people than any other country in the world. There are approximately 117 federal prisons, 1,200 state prisons, and 3,750 local detention/jail facilities in the US. Over 400,000 correctional professionals exist with an inmate population of 2.3 million on any given day. With new admissions, releases and transfers, almost 11 million inmates spend time in a correctional facility on an annual basis.
Due to raising challenges in the fields of overcrowding, technology needs and privatization, we organize this event. A maximum of 100 high-end individuals from both, government and the industry, will be gathering. Together with CCA, CEC and GEO Group, we will highlight key topics such as:
- What security solutions are needed to make overcrowded prisons safer?
- Develop, review, coordinate, and execute acquisition management plans
- Acquisition strategies: How to choose the right contractors?
Here is your Most Comprehensive Opportunity to:
- Prioritize technology within state facilities, private prisons and overall efficiency improvement for corrections management
- Understand the latest solutions to tackle the overcrowding crisis in US prisons
- Benchmark the most pressing issues for public and private partnerships and identify where opportunities exist
- Discuss capability requirements for increasing safety for corrections personnel
