The Florida Department of Corrections (DOC) is the third largest state prison system in the country with an operating budget in FY 2013–14 of approximately $2.2 billion – with more than 100,000 inmates in prison and another 143,800 offenders on community supervision. The Department has 145 facilities statewide, including 49 prisons, 7 private partner prisons, 16 prison annexes, 31 work camps, 14 state-run community release centers, 21 private community release centers, 4 road prisons, two forestry camps, and one basic training camp. In FY 2013–14, 32,442 inmates were admitted to prison and another 32,921 were released. During the year, 86,369 offenders were placed on community supervision and another 87,533 were released from supervision.
Since most of those who serve time in prison and on supervision will eventually transition back to Florida’s communities, the DOC strives to provide inmates and offenders with the tools they will need to become productive citizens through a variety of programs and services.
