Reliant Management Group Reports Major Expansions in Monitoring Services Division

RALEIGH, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2006 -- Reliant Management Group, Inc. (Reliant), through its operating division, Reliant Monitoring Services, has announced 1) receipt of a new contract from Durham County (NC), for the operation of a 25 unit electronic monitoring program, as well as 2) an expansion of its current contract with New Hanover County (NC) to expand its program to 90 slots.

Both initiatives are part of each County's overall Pretrial Services divisions and provide for the supervised release of individuals facing nonviolent charges that may, by NC law, be released from jail. In addition, the programs closely monitor the release of certain individuals being jailed for not paying child support. Reliant combines the use of modern tracking technology with the deployment of field staff to help insure participants are employed and in compliance with related court orders.

Reliant President, Todd Edwards, said the new award in Durham County and the contract expansion in New Hanover County represent a significant step forward in the evolution of the company. "With a contracted capacity of 190 units, Reliant is now positioned as one of the leading private providers of pretrial electronic monitoring services in the country," he said. "Due to the growing problem of jail overcrowding, we anticipate local governments will wisely continue to increase investments in alternatives to detention programming -- and electronic monitoring represents the vanguard of this trend."
