Private Jails in Louisiana


A private jail also formally known as for-profit-prison is a facility where inmates are being held up by third party agencies licenced by the government. Such prisons typically hold a contract where the government pays for each inmate housed by these prisons. So that means that more number of inmates with longer duration of sentence equates to more money for private prison.

Most such prisons don’t publicly declare their inmate population,staffing,or other budgeting costs, and hence its difficult to estimate how much they profit from it. Compared globally, US has the highest number of private prisons. It is roughly estimated that about 8% of total US prison population is held in these private prisons.

Private correctional facilities have the right to deny admission of any inmate. So they eventually house less violent criminals and reject those with medical or mental issues to cut down operational costs. These prisons are a cheaper option for the government, but come with negatives which are worse for inmate rights and have a higher need of qualified correctional officers.
It is considered that private prisons are more dangerous and less effective at reforming inmates than their public counterparts run by the government.
