TAFT PRISON CAMP


Taft Federal Prison Camp is located near Bakersfield, California. It’s located in the Western Region of the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Since the inception of Taft, back in the late 1990s, various private-prison companies have managed the institution. That makes a difference. Staff members do not work for the Federal Bureau of Prisons. They work for the private prison company. I served longer than five years in the minimum-security federal prison camp at Taft. Like all prisons, it has advantages and disadvantages. I explain those in my review below. I expect to publish reviews from other people who have been in the Taft Federal Prison Camp, too. And of course, you can read extensively about how I made progress at Taft by reading my various books. I also publish a lot of audio files and webinars that describe life in the Taft Federal Prison Camp.
