Private Correctional Services

The U.S. Private Corrections Industry is a unique but massive, multi-billion dollar segment within our country’s broad corrections and government outsourcing sector. Public agencies at the Federal, state, municipal and local level rely heavily on the private sector for the comprehensive delivery of Custodial Services, Managed Care and Behavioral Health, Technology Systems, Community Corrections Services via Private-Sector Probation, Parole and Half-way House Management, as well as Correctional Real Estate and Property Development.

Over the past two decades, Signal Hill’s principals have served as the most active and knowledgeable investment bankers to this highly specialized niche. With more than 50 transactions completed since the mid-1990s, we are considered industry authorities, often anticipating major industry developments or shifts and advising public and private companies as well as private equity firms on the associated risks and opportunities. In 2012, we published one of the most comprehensive private corrections industry surveys ever produced and our bankers continually contribute to the industry’s leading periodicals and publications and appear frequently at industry events across the country.

We have completed deals for Corrections Corporation of America, The Geo Group, Cornell Companies, Community Education Centers, Youth Services International, BI Incorporated, Correctional Systems, Correctional Healthcare Companies, Corizon Healthcare, and many others.
