    NASHVILLE, Tenn--December 10, 2001--Corrections Corporation of America
    (NYSE: CXW) announced that it has entered into separate contracts with
    the State of Kansas and the State of Wyoming, according to CCA

    Adult male offenders from both Kansas and Wyoming were placed in CCA's
    medium-security Kit Carson Correctional Center in Burlington, Colorado
    within the last week. Both contracts allow for CCA to manage up to 100
    inmates initially.

    The Kansas contract represents the first relationship CCA has had in
    offering services to that state. Additionally, it represents the first
    time that the State of Kansas has sent inmates out of state. CCA has
    provided services to Wyoming, but not for a number of years.

    "We are extremely pleased with the opportunity to establish these new
    partnerships with the States of Kansas and Wyoming in an effort to
    meet their immediate correctional needs," said John Ferguson,
    President and Chief Executive Officer. "The signing of these new state
    government contracts reflects well on CCA's reputation for quality
    correctional services and our ability to respond quickly to existing
    government needs. CCA is grateful for the opportunity to earn the
    trust of these new customers and to provide a meaningful public
    service to the citizens of these two states."

    Kit Carson Correctional Center is privately owned by CCA and serves
    the needs of the State of Colorado. The facility, which opened in
    November 1998, is accredited by the American Correctional Association
    and has a total capacity of 768 inmates. A wide array of education,
    vocation, substance abuse and life skills courses are offered to
    offenders as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation program aimed at
    enhancing their opportunities for a successful re-entry into society.

    CCA is the nation's largest provider of outsourced corrections
    management services, housing an inmate population larger than that of
    all but five public correctional systems in the United States. The
    Company specializes in owning, operating and managing prisons and
    other correctional facilities and providing inmate residential and
    prisoner transportation services for governmental agencies. In
    addition to providing the fundamental residential services relating to
    inmates, each of the Company's facilities offers a variety of
    rehabilitation and educational programs, including basic education,
    life skills and employment training and substance abuse treatment. CCA
    also provides health care (including medical, dental and psychiatric
    services), institutional food services and work and recreational
    programs. The Company owns or manages 70 facilities including 68
    correctional and detention facilities with a total design capacity of
    approximately 65,000 beds in 21 states, the District of Columbia and
    Puerto Rico, of which 68 facilities are operating (two of which are
    idle) and two are under construction.

      • Sorry DRK this board is not about what WE need to hear. This board is about making money for one's self. This company evidently wants nothing to do with NEOCC. For I have watch this board & company for quite sometime & everything is fairly good, stock, loan money, debit, contracts for other facilities, ect. However when it comes to NEOCC I do believe they want to just forget about thier nightmare they created. Congressmen Traficant was on the radio today and spoke with someone from the facility & stated for further info, to call his office tommorrow. Best of luck. I hope you had a btter holiday than the 450 ex-employee's of NEOCC.

      • Before you make an absolute fool of yourself, either post your letter here or email it to me and I will proof it, correcting your spelling (assuming I can figure out what word you intend), grammar, and punctuation. You may have some valid complaints but no one will take you seriously if you write your letter as poorly as you write your posts here. My email address is my alias at

      • First class as always ol boy. Write untill your little heart is content. You are a useless soul, full of idle threats and promises. I am sure Mr. Simmons reads this board. He will be able to see what a hopeless human being you are. Good luck and best wishes.
