Facilities

Florida correctional facilities are divided into major institutions, work camps, work release centers, and road prisons. The classification of inmates into these different facilities takes into account the seriousness of their offenses, length of sentence, time remaining to serve, prior criminal record, escape history, prison adjustment, and other factors. The most serious offenders with the longest sentences and those least likely to adjust to institutional life are placed in more secure facilities.

Correctional Institutions are prisons with fences, razor wire or ribbon, electronic detection systems, perimeter towers with armed correctional officers and/or officers in roving perimeter vehicles. Most of these inmates do not reside in cells, but in open bay dormitories with bunk beds. Some exceptions include those confined for disciplinary or security reasons, and those on death row. These facilities are divided into seven levels of security ranging from minimum custody facilities to maximum custody facilities. About 86.2% of the Florida prison population is housed in a major institution or annex.

Work/Forestry Camps are minimum to medium custody facilities, surrounded by fences and razor ribbon.  Inmates are usually transferred to a work camp after completing part of their sentences at a correctional institution and demonstrating satisfactory adjustment. Most of these work camps are located next to correctional institutions enabling the sharing of facilities like laundry and health services. The inmates housed at these facilities may be assigned to community and public work squads.  Their jobs include cleaning up roadways and right-of-ways, grounds and building maintenance, painting, building construction projects, moving state offices, and cleaning up forests.  About 9.6% of the prison population resides in work camps.

Community Release Centers (CRC), also known as Work Release Centers, house select community custody inmates who participate in the Community Release Program.  Inmates convicted of sexual offenses, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd degree murder (or attempts),  or escape are ineligible for placement in a community release center.  There are four distinct program components offered within the Community Release Program:  1. Community Work Release (CWR) – The portion of the community release program that allows inmates to work at paid employment in the community while continuing as inmates of the facility where they are confined. 2.  Center Work Assignment (CWA) – Where inmates work at a community release center to assist with the maintenance, food service duties, or assignment on outside work squads while confined at the facility.  3.  Transition Program (PWR) – Which provides inmates with transitional services including substance abuse treatment, educational/vocational services, and self-betterment programs, while in the community, prior to placement into CWR or CWA.  4.  Community-based Therapeutic Program (CTP) - Which provides transitional services including substance abuse treatment, educational/vocational services, and self-betterment programs, while in the community, in lieu of placement into community work release (CWR) or center work assignment (CWA).  To be eligible for Community Release Programs, inmates must be within three years of their release date, depending on their program assignment.  Inmates participating in paid employment must pay a minimum 10% of their net earning towards each: restitution, court costs, and family support, if applicable. In addition, 55% of their earnings are collected for subsistence and 10% is placed in savings for the inmate’s release.  More than 6,000 inmates participate in Florida's community release programs annually, with about 3.4% of the prison population enrolled at any given time. Community Release Centers are supervised by the Department's Office of Institutions.

Road Prisons house medium custody inmates and have perimeter fences. Most of these inmates work on community work squads and the highways doing road work. Their jobs also include support services to state agencies such as collecting recycling materials and moving furniture. Less than 1% of the prison population is housed in road prisons.
