Geo Settles Federal Complaint

The former operator of East Mississippi Correctional Facility has settled a federal complaint over its operations of the prison.

The U.S. Department of Labor Thursday announced that the Geo Group has entered into a corporate-wide settlement to implement better workplace safety procedures and policies, after numerous violations were discovered at EMCF in June 2012.

Geo no longer operates the prison. It was taken over by Management & Training Corporation in 2012 after issues came to light.
