Inmate Admissions

51.1% of admissions during FY 2015-16 were new to Florida prisons

Prior commitments refers to any previous occasion that an inmate served time in the Florida prison system. This does not include supervision, such as probation. Nor does it include inmates who may have been in county jails in Florida, or in other state systems or in the Federal prison system.

Approximately 48.9% of the offenders who were admitted to the Florida prison system in FY 2014-15 had been in state prison in Florida before, and that number has continued to increase over the past five fiscal years.

In FY 2015-16, 23.2% of the offenders who were admitted to the Florida prison system had been in prison in Florida once previously. Approximately, 11% had been in twice previously, and 6.4% three times previously, with 8.4% of admissions having previously been in the Florida prison system four times or more.

During FY 2015-16, 68.7% of the female offenders had no previous Florida prison commitments, while 47.7% of male offenders had no previous Florida state prison commitments.
