The Public Private Partnership was the first of its kind in South Africa and G4S is proud to be a part of the consortium responsible for the design, construction and financing of the project. G4S signed a 25-year contract to operate the facility as sub-contractor to the consortium. Mangaung is the second largest private prison in the world and opened in 2001. The purpose-built prison ensures that even though facilities are extensive and provide a range of opportunities for inmates to learn and develop new skills, security is tight and controlled at all times.
Internationally, our Care & Justice Services are built on successful custodial and information businesses, specialising in prison management and security, including institutions for juveniles, electronic tagging of prisoners, and the escorting/transportation of prisoners.
