Ricky A. McIntosh founded Correctional Programs, LLC after a 25 year career in corrections where he worked at facilities in 6 states and experienced every aspect of corrections; from negotiating a hostage situation, to day-to-day management of a large staff and hosting two national industry conferences. Ricky started his career as the Athletic Director at Georgia State Penitentiary in May of 1979 and four years later in 1983 transferred to the Federal Bureau of Prisons as a Recreation Specialist stationed at Petersburg, Virginia.


From there he was promoted to Recreation Supervisor at El Reno, Oklahoma. During his time at El Reno, he became the Vice President of the National Correctional Recreation Association (NCRA), and his department was highlighted in the October 1988 issue of Sports Illustrated as having the outstanding correctional recreation department in the country. He went on to be promoted to USP Marion in Illinois and FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey. He finished out his career at the United States Penitentiary, Beaumont, Texas as Unit Manager. 


A graduate of the University of Florida, Ricky went to college on an athletic scholarship and held two track and field school records at the University of Florida in the javelin and shot put. He is the recipient of All American honors as well.  In 2005 he joined Creative Corrections as Marketing Director where he oversaw the retail products sales and service. In late 2006 he merged this function into a new entity: Correctional Programs LLC.

“It is Correctional Programs' mission to fully support correctional institutions with products and services while fully understanding the mandates and guidelines under which they operate. After 25 years of being part of the industry I can now apply what I learned during my career to make life easier for those working in correctional facilities today.”
