LAFAYETTE, LA, August 18, 2016 – Emerald Correctional Management, LLC is a small operations company focused on providing a safe environment where the lives of our Employees, and the Residents in our care, are uplifted/improved. Our goal and vision is to make a positive difference in the lives that we touch.

For example, we have collaborated with Duke University in the development of the Transformative Prison Program. Together, Duke and Emerald are implementing this groundbreaking training and operating plan in our facilities.  The Transformative Prison Program exceeds the minimum training requirements for our Employees, and it focuses on behavioral training to reduce conflict, and promote a positive impact on the Residents. We believe this Vision and this program will lead the corrections industry (both public and private) in reducing recidivism, and improving lives.

We have no contracts with the Federal Bureau of Prisons and therefore do not believe we are affected by their current announcement.


Emerald Correctional Management, LLC designs, builds, operates and maintains jail and detention centers.  WE ARE NOT THE BIGGEST – but we are diverse, innovative, flexible and responsive. We utilize leading edge smart technology customized for the real-world correctional environment. Typically our management contracts run for 10 to 20 years.  If you want to warehouse your detainees, Emerald is not the company you want.  But if you want to make a difference – YOU HAVE A CHOICE! We are changing the culture in privatization.
