PHOENIX  - A Quaker group will release an extensive report on the safety, quality, and cost of private prisons in Arizona. – including six prisons run by Corrections Corp. of America that do not contract with the state. The state is currently soliciting bids for construction and management of 2,000 new prison beds to private operators, a move that would cost state taxpayers millions of dollars each year, with little public safety return on the investment.

NOTE:  A telephonic press conference will be held at 11:30am Mountain/1:30pm Eastern, to register email cisaacs@afsc.org.
