take over prison
A transition team is in town to help Management & Training Corporation take over the Marshall County Correctional Facility from GEO, according to David Broadbent, administration director for MTC from Centerville, Utah.
The team has set up an office beside Annie’s Restaurant (196 North Memphis Street, Holly Springs) where the public can go to apply for work online. The office will be open until August 13. Hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

MTC will take over from GEO on August 13.
Individuals can apply online for work at any of the three Mississippi facilities now under contract with MTC. The Walnut Grove Correctional Facility and the East Mississippi Correctional Facility are also receiving applications. To apply online from any computer visit www.mtcjobs.com.
Broadbrent said the new warden will be Tim Outlaw, who has been working with a federal prison facility in Arkansas. Outlaw comes on board as warden August 1.
“Warden Outlaw will be an active part of the community and our outreach program will be a part of the community,” Broadbent said.
Outlaw began his career in corrections in 1984, starting out as a correctional officer with the Federal Bureau of Prisons. He worked his way up to unit manager, regional designator, programs administrator and associate warden. He has served as warden in facilities in Minnesota, Texas, Arkansas and Tennessee.
The Marshall County Correctional Facility has a capacity to house 1,000 inmates. MTC will employ 184 people. Inmates will be offered opportunities to earn a GED and receive training in horticulture and computer technology.
