The Georgia Department of Corrections has contracted with Cornell Corrections and Corrections Corporation of America to operate three private prisons located throughout the state. D. Ray James Prison located in Folkston, Georgia is operated by Cornell Corrections. Coffee Correctional Institute located in Nicholls, Georgia and Wheeler Correctional Institute located in Alamo, Georgia are operated by Corrections Corporation of America.


The Department has assigned a team of specialists to monitor the daily operation of each of the three private facilities and ensure that the terms of the contracts are being met. Employees at the facilities include security personnel (certified by the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council), counselors, program specialists and support staff. Programming for inmate vocational, educational and substance abuse treatment closely follow the standards found in state-operated facilities.
