Facilities

In Fiscal Year 2009-10, DC's community work squad inmates worked 6.6 million hours in our communities, saving Florida taxpayers more than $59 million.

Florida houses 102,232 inmates in 144 facilities across Florida. About 80% of Florida prison inmates are assigned to work or a program activity while incarcerated. Inmate labor is used to perform work on prison farms. They help to prepare and serve all prison meals, maintain prison grounds and construct new prisons. Additionally, inmates are assigned to community work squads to perform services for state and local agencies and non-profit organizations. This past year, inmate work squads worked 6.6 million hours in Florida communities saving Florida taxpayers more than $59 million.
