CoreCivic released its first-ever ESG report. We're proud to announce this company and industry first, which shows continuing progress toward our reentry goals and much more.
As a leader in the corrections industry for more than 30 years, CoreCivic maintains an extraordinary responsibility to many stakeholders including our government partners, the communities we serve, and those in our care.
The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), a federal law enacted in 2003, was created to eliminate sexual abuse in confinement. In addition to providing federal funding for research, programs, training, and technical assistance to address the issue, the legislation mandated the development of national standards. The National Prison Rape Elimination Commission developed recommended national standards for reducing prison rape. The final standards became effective June 20, 2012, when they were published by the Department of Justice (DOJ) in the Federal Register. More recently, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released final standards for DHS confinement facilities, effective May 6, 2014.
At CoreCivic, we believe we have a responsibility to help better the public good. Simply put, we help people and we're doing it by preparing individuals to reenter the community after incarceration and by giving time and resources to deserving organizations helping former offenders, victims of crime, and underserved youth.
Over the past decade, CoreCivic has raised more than $11 Million and given thousands of service hours to charities making a real impact in the lives of others.
