"We expect Jenkins to be the best facility by anyone's standards," said Ralph M. Kemp, warden at Jenkins and longtime Georgia corrections professional. "Opening a new facility is always challenging work, but it will be very rewarding as well because our employees have the chance to offer an important service to their community and state at the highest level."

For Jenkins County, the impact of construction jobs in advance of the permanent employment, presents economic benefit now and for years to come. CCA encourages Jenkins County residents, and other local jobseekers, to apply to any of the available positions and join the nationwide CCA family.
"At Jenkins, you're not just working for a local company, you're working for a national industry leader," said Kemp.

CCA Names Ralph M. Kemp Warden at New Jenkins Correctional Center
Award-winning Corrections Trailblazer Will Take the Helm at Brand New Facility
MILLEN, Ga. - CCA has named 45-year corrections professional Ralph M. Kemp the warden at its soon-to-open 1,150-bed Jenkins Correctional Center in Millen, Ga, starting in mid-September. As a former national Warden of the Year with decades of experience, Kemp is optimistic about the new Jenkins facility.
"I've been involved a number of times in launching new facilities, and it's always an exciting time," said Kemp. "There is a tremendous amount of work to be done before the opening, from construction to staffing to finally receiving inmates, and I'm looking forward to it."
Kemp is also anxious to share the success of Jenkins Correctional Center with the local community, both by bringing in new permanent jobs and interacting with local residents on philanthropic efforts such as fundraising for the United Way and holding blood drives.
"CCA facilities always participate in local events," said Kemp. "Opening this facility will be a boost to Millen and Jenkins County, and we'll try to help out wherever we can."
Before joining CCA, Kemp had a long career with the Georgia Department of Corrections. He began as a correctional counselor in 1966, then advanced to assistant warden, warden, regional director, and finally, deputy commissioner. He has gained expertise in training development, administrative operations and security.
Kemp brought these years of experience to the CCA family in 1998 as assistant warden at the Wheeler Correctional Facility in Alamo, Ga. He was quickly promoted to warden in the summer of 2000 and has served the facility in that capacity for the past decade.
His expertise and devotion to corrections was recognized most recently when he was named Warden of the Year by the North American Association of Wardens and Superintendents in 2010, an honor he calls one of the most memorable and proudest moments of his career thus far. He is also a lifetime member and past president of the Georgia Prison Warden's Association, a founding member of the Georgia Correctional Association, and a member of the Peace Officers Association of Georgia, the American Correctional Association, North American Association of Wardens and Superintendents, and the Fraternal Order of Police. Kemp also holds a bachelors degree in sociology from Georgia Southern University. He and his wife, Molly, have two children and three grandchildren, and in his free time Kemp enjoys hunting, fishing, and watching sports.
Promotion to warden at a brand new facility is a daunting task, but Kemp says he looks forward to joining the new staff at Jenkins and leading them to success.
"I have had a very exciting and rewarding career," said Kemp.
