Correctional Industries is committed to building responsible partnerships with agencies and organizations in both the public and private sectors. From vendors and customers to law and rule makers, our partners help support our mission of training offenders in jobs that will lead to meaningful employment upon release from prison.
Class I Partnerships
Class I Industries allow private sector companies to operate within state correctional facilities. CI is currently seeking private sector companies to operate within state correctional facilities as Class I industries. Once approved, the private company provides management, on-site supervision, on-the-job training, and all machinery and equipment. Private industry staff interview and hire offenders at wages comparable to those in the community. The Department of Corrections provides industrial space, vocational training, a CI representative to coordinate the program, and custody supervision according to the needs of the institution and the employer.
Correctional Industries is currently recruiting private companies who are:
- Newly established and need both space and a motivated workforce.
- Expanding a portion of their business and need space and additional workforce.
- Moving in from another state/country and need both space and a motivated workforce.
