New documents show that former Department of Corrections (DOC) director Nolin Renfrow was working for private prison contractor the GEO Group while he was still on the state payroll.
The information was obtained through an open records request by Colorado Citizens for Ethics in Government (CCEG), a non-profit watchdog group.
More after the flip.From the press release:
The GEO group also runs a federal ICE lockup facility in Aurora, Colorado where 22 prisoners were suddenly moved from the building while contract negotiations with the federal government were being resolved in 1998.
GEO recently lost a state contract in Pueblo after the firm sought to change the agreement and failed to start construction.
