Potential investors tour prison

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - Following the introduction of Bill 172 last week, it appears investors have quickly shown interest in possibly aiding with the construction and renovation of a new Department of Corrections facility.

Today, DOC hosted a tour for unsolicited potential investors this morning. Spokesperson Jeff Limo says compared to prisons around the world, what investors will see is something entirely different on island.

"That's because most prisons in the world and I've made several visits to some of them off-island, I've had the opportunity to tour some of them, and the layout is not like this, it's not spread out, it's actually Sky Risen Prisons, which would be more controlled and the security would be more tight," he explained.

According to Senator Brant McCreadie, who introduced Bill 172, the potential investor to tour DOE today were two representatives from Carter Global Lee from Chicago. CGL is an affiliate of Hunt Companies who plans, designs, constructs and manages correctional, criminal justice and government facilities. He fuether adds CGL told him that Guam is in serious need of finding a solution for DOC and found it very comforting that Guam came up with legislation that was agreed upon in a bipartisan effort whereas in other jurisdictions such as California were unable to do so.
