CCA if I remember right is a private facility not state or federal is that correct? If that is correct then you can not be a peace officer. Otherwise it could be neccessary for you to fax your credentials to police link.

This may be your hang up:


About CCA

CCA founded the private corrections management industry more than 25 years ago, establishing industry standards for future-focused, forward-thinking correctional solutions. A commitment to innovation, efficiency, cost effectiveness and achievement has made the company the private corrections management provider of choice for federal, state and local agencies since 1983.


The reason I am familiar is because I worked for Transcor America for a while until I went to the academy. I understand that CCA is contracted to do corrections but by state and federal statute they are not peace officers.

Well that's what I thought, Transcor was a company under CCA. That's probably why he can't get verified.

Private prisons should scare the hell out of everyone. There is no room for profit in public safety! My .02.

Agreed. I took an extra shift one day and handled transports for the jail just to help my buddy.. (Jail Lt.) and I went to a private prison In Chattanooga... Let's just say there was more Gang Bangers workin there than in there... What's up with that?

Strange, Texas requires all Jailers(except state TDCJ-not sure...) in private, city, and county jailes to be TECLOSE certfied as Jailers. Would the state TCLEOSE(POST in other states) not be suitable?
