Serco

Does anyone know anthing about Serco, the UK-based corporation that manages prisons across the world? Their own website is singularly unhelpful.

Seems that they have control of some major rail services, hospitals, and prisons as well as most of the immigration detention centres in Australia.

Their reputation seems to be really lousy.

I was wanting to know if anyone else has come accross the company, and if they have any opinions on their operations.

They seem to be quite secretive about what they do, and where. Their contracts with the Australian government appear to be classified, even though they are raking in 100s of millions of taxpayers' for the detention centres. See my latest post on the relevant thread.

(Thank you Gerri)
