Inc. ("GEO"), the world's leading provider of diversified correctional,
detention, community reentry, and location monitoring services, announced
today that it has been designated a 2014 Top Military Friendly Employer® by

sample of 5,000 of the largest companies in the United States. Criteria used
in the selection process include the strength of company military recruiting
efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention
programs, and company policies toward National Guard and Reserve service.
