How much is the per diem charged to other facilities for boarding detainees?
Our normal per diem charge is $60. This charge can fluctuate depending on the current economic climate. We will however enter into “preferred status contracts” with other facilities. Those facilities that can guarantee a minimum number of boarders for a period of time to exceed 30 days can be offered a per diem as low as $50 depending on that number.

Revenues collected for boarding detainees since opening have varied somewhat but have generally exceeded budget predictions.
