Corporate News Releases
 
As a matter of course, American Jails does not publish company-issued media or product releases. However, the magazine does publish appropriate articles in which a vendor and an agency/facility have worked together to solve a problem or obstacle. Please contact Jody West or Sandra Lunsford before making a submission.
 
For articles written on products used in jails, the product must be mentioned by its generic name.
