The 3 companies that run for-profit prisons in Arizona have all submitted bids to take over New Hampshire's prison system.  One of them has revealed it has its eyes on land in Lancaster and Northumberland as potential sites for a new prison. Caroline Isaacs, who directs the AFSC's Arizona Program in Tucson, has thoroughly investigated the performance of these 3 companies and found it lacking.  Her report, published in Feburary, revealed widespread and persistent problems in the areas of safety, accountability, and cost.  She will share her findings during a 3-day speaking tour in New Hampshire.   This program is sponsored by the NH State Employees Assocation and AFSC.  Free and open to all.  For more information about prison privatization in New Hampshire, visit NH Prison Watch.
