A Few Helpful Tips

  • The Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) has institutions, not institutes.

  • FDC only has supervision over state prisons, not county jails or federal prisons.

  • Proper reference should be Correctional Officers, not prison guards.

  • County jails have Corrections Officers, so don’t assume that when you refer to a Correctional Officer that your readers/viewers will know you are talking about a FDC employee.

  • FDC has inmate ID photos, not “mug shots.” “Mug shots” have to be obtained from the arresting law enforcement agency.

  • Correctional Officers do not carry firearms.
