CCA Bringing More Jobs to Wheeler Co
Thursday, 02 July 2009

July 2--  The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports 75 jobs will be added to the private prison in Wheeler County.

Nashville-based Corrections Corp. of America said it will bring more than 300 jobs to Georgia as it plans to spend $65 million to expand two of its state prison facilities in the state that it has contracts to operate with the Georgia Department of Corrections.

The company said in a press release Wednesday it will expand its Coffee Correctional Facility in Nicholls, Ga., and Wheeler Correctional Facility in Alamo, Ga., by 1,500 beds, by the third quarter of 2010.

The company said it would add an estimated 75 jobs at each of those facilities.

When the expansions are completed, CCA’s work force in Georgia will increase to more than 1,500. CAA currently employs more than 1,200 residents at its McRae Correctional Facility, which operated for the Federal the Bureau of Prisons, and Stewart Detention Facility, operated on behalf of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

When CCA’s North Georgia Detention Center begins receiving up to 500 detainees on behalf of ICE in mid-July, it will employ another 160 correctional professionals, said the company. For information about jobs, check the company’s Web site: www.ccajob.com
