In April 2018, we published our flagship report exposing over 3,100 companies engaged in the prison industrial complex

"The Corrections Accountability Project's database of companies involved in the corrections industry is an extremely comprehensive resource, and, along with the accompanying report, The Prison Industrial Complex: Mapping Private Sector Players, are invaluable materials for anyone analyzing private corrections firms and the companies that provide services to the corrections system. This essential information allowed us to increase the scope of our own analysis of the political activity of private prisons and other companies profiting from the business of incarceration." - Pete Quist, Follow the Money
