“Situations like this exemplify how critically important it is for state and federal partners to have access to our real estate assets and associated service offerings. Our Tallahatchie facility will provide immediate capacity for the State to move a portion of their close custody inmate population, which will quickly improve the safety and security of their entire correctional system. Without the private sector there would be no immediate alternative solution available to the State,” Hininger added.
