Quality Services: Private prisons provide at least the same quality services that government prisons d&ased on six independent quality comparison studies, rates of American Correctional Association accreditation, recidivism comparison studies, contract terminations, and prisoner and correctional officer lawsuits. Private prisons save money-10 to 15 percent average savings on oper- Rhtions costs, based on fourteen independent cost comparison studies. The evidence is overwhelming that the private sector delivers quality correctional services at lower cost to the benetit of taxpayers. Moreover. public official’s experiences with contracting for correctional services, through contract terms, legislation, and best practices, has resolved many of the thorny questions that come up when privatizing corrections is suggested. This study examines the answers to such questions as: Can private correctional officers use deadly force?, Can they manage riots?, How can we be sure private prisons do not violate prisoners’ rights?, Do private correctional ofticers receive lower-quality training than government correctional officers?, Have private prisons been “skimming the cream”-taking only low-security and less- expensive inmates?, and many others.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
