Inmate Releases and Time Served

Temporary vs. Permanent
Prison Releases

Releases are grouped into two broad categories: permanent releases and temporary releases.

  • Permanent releases are those inmates who have reached the end point of a state prison sentence and whose state prison records have been officially closed out.

  • Temporary releases are those inmates currently in the service of a state prison sentence who are not in the physical custody of the department but whose prison records are still currently active.

For more detailed information about inmate releases and time served, go to our website at www.dc.state.fl.us and click on "Publications and Statistics."
