EMCF New Management Approved

The East Mississippi Correctional Facility has a new company to operate it.

The Mississippi Department of Corrections says it has entered into a contract with the Management and Training Corporation to operate the prison.

It was previously run by the Geo Group, but the state cut ties with that company earlier this year, citing problems at the prison.

MTC is based in Utah. It operates 19 prisons in seven states, primarily in the western U.S.
