 Mississippi DOC houses its inmates in 3 state prisons, 4 private prisons,
 11 county regional facilities, 17 satellite facilities, 4 restitution centers
 and operates over 60 statewide community corrections offices.  With a

 extensive public safety experience and Offendertrak's leading edge
 functionality are already having a positive effect on our operations.  The

 scheduled for completion by Fall 2003.
