“Our growth is generally dependent upon our ability to obtain new contracts to develop and manage new correctional and detention facilities. This possible growth depends on a number of factors we cannot control, including crime rates and sentencing patterns in various jurisdictions and acceptance of privatization. The demand for our facilities and services could be adversely affected by the relaxation of enforcement efforts, leniency in conviction and sentencing practices or through the decriminalization of certain activities that are currently proscribed by our criminal laws. For instance, any changes with respect to drugs and controlled substances or illegal immigration could affect the number of persons arrested, convicted, and sentenced, thereby potentially reducing demand for correctional facilities to house them. Legislation has been proposed in numerous jurisdictions that could lower minimum sentences for some non-violent crimes and make more inmates eligible for early release based on good behavior. Also, sentencing alternatives under consideration could put some offenders on probation with electronic monitoring who would otherwise be incarcerated. Similarly, reductions in crime rates could lead to reductions in arrests, convictions and sentences requiring incarceration at correctional facilities.”
–From the 2005 annual report of the Corrections Corporation of America, the private-prison operator that rebranded as “CoreCivic. (2006).

Flagler firefighter deploys to Oklahoma: Flagler County Firefighter Ronald Titus drove across the country on Independence Day to help fight wildfires in Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado. “It was short notice this time,” Titus, 33, said on Tuesday shortly after getting word of deployment. “I have to leave about 4 a.m. (on the Fourth of July).” Titus traveled with a crew of at least 20 from the Florida Forest Service and other agencies. It is his sixth consecutive deployment. “Firefighters continually train to be ready for these situations,” Flagler County Fire Rescue Chief Don Petito said. “Ronald Titus is very motivated, and enjoys being part of these specialized teams.” Deployments are typically 17 to 21 days. Flagler County hired Titus in January 2011. “He exemplifies the dedication of our firefighters,” County Administrator Craig Coffey said. “They serve are committed to helping people regardless of where they live.”
