Prisons

Facilities

On June 30, 2011, Florida housed 102,319 inmates in 140 facilities throughout the state from Pensacola to Key West.

Florida's oldest prison still in use today is Union Correctional Institution in Raiford, Florida. It was built in 1913. Because of prison overcrowding in the late 1980s, a number of prisons were built in the early 1990s using inmate labor. About 84% of Florida inmates are assigned a work or program activity while incarcerated, and inmates are responsible for all the cooking, cleaning, landscaping, laundry and sewing at their facilities.

Inmates are also assigned to community work squads where they complete tasks for state and local agencies and non-profit organizations. This Fiscal Year, inmate work squads worked 4.2 million hours in our communities, saving Florida taxpayers more than $53 million in labor.
