Statement by GEO Group on Adelanto ICE Processing Center OIG Inspection

“For purposes of background, The GEO Group manages and/or owns 139 correctional, detention and community reentry facilities. We manage these facilities on behalf of our customers, which include state corrections agencies, the U.S. Department of Justice, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

We take the findings outlined by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) regarding the Adelanto ICE Processing Center very seriously. While we believe that a number of the findings lacked appropriate context or were based on incomplete information, we have already taken steps to remedy areas where our processes fell short of our commitment to high-quality care.
