Arizona State Prison – Kingman

Arizona State Prison – Kingman is a privately run minimum/medium-security prison designed to hold 3500 prisoners. It is located in unincorporated Mohave County, Arizona, near Golden Valley and Kingman.[1][2] It was operated by the Management and Training Corporation under contract to the Arizona Department of Corrections until August 2015.[1] MTC had been criticized for allowing the homicidal escape of three violent prisoners in 2010. The state began seeking an alternate provider after it found MTC failed to control riots on July 1st, 2nd and 4th, at Kingman, in July 2015. Because of damage to the prison, the state had to transfer more than 1,000 inmates to other facilities. As a result of the accompanying revenue loss, the Mohave County Industrial Development Authority's bond rating was lowered by Standard and Poors to BBB+.[3] In August 2015 the state reissued the contract for managing prisons to the GEO Group of Boca Raton, Florida. It was forced out of a contract in Mississippi in 2012 as part of settlement of a federal class action suit for its operation of Walnut Grove Youth Correctional Facility. In February 2017 the Mississippi State Attorney named GEO Group and 14 other contractors in a civil suit for damages related to corruption and bribery of state officials in the prison system, as revealed in federal indictments and convictions.
