Keefe Group is a supply company that engages fully in corrections services through packaging and supply of products. It’s made up of six functioning entities that deal distinctively with aspects of commissary services. Keefe has been meeting the needs of correctional facilities nationwide since 1975.
Difficulties faced by Prisoners through Keefe
There is a lot of abuse and corruption going on in prisons. Sadly, this is something that those of us in the system know about. These practices are, however, not only experienced in prisons but other correctional facilities are going through the same thing. As a result, what we should do is fight against these deeds by Centric Group LLC and its affiliate, Keefe. Keefe is a monopoly with lucrative contracts through the nation. To Keefe Group, prisoners are money. The contracts given to Keefe began on 11/05/2008, and they have been renewed many times since. The last contract that was renewed in 2011 will expire in August 2015.
Department of correction is struggling to ensure that better deals come its way as they work to terminate corrupted contracts. Scrutinization will be done to companies with active contracts despite the amount of money they bring into the department. Those culpable to bribery are to be probed. Secret agents should advice the government whether it should continue to use private entities to service a number of its prisons.

Inmates receive money that they use order items such as candy bars or combs from their relatives through commissary system. However,measures should be taken to ensure responsibility since some complaints have been emerging from family members of the inmates. This is due to the high prices of goods that is causing financial constraints. If put in place, recommendations being made will affect all state organizations.
