  • NEW PRISONS Opened Santa Rosa CI and Wakulla CI. Major expansions are planned for Washington and Gulf CI's.
  • REACCREDITATION Thirteen major institutions and five Community Correctional Centers successfully achieved American Correctional Association recertification of accreditation. Gulf CI and Quincy CI will have their accreditation audits in the near future.
  • MANAGEMENT CELLS The designation of a protective Management unit and several Close Management units greatly enhanced the ability of the region to manage the inmate population within our regional resources.
  • STERLING AWARDS The number of entries for the Sterling Award and the Quality Showcase have increased.
  • QUALITY Correctional Quality Managerial Leadership (CQML) received additional emphasis and the Corrections Distance Learning Network (CDLN) increased the availability of useful information to the staff.
  • REORGANIZATION Regional staff administrative reorganization continues to progress on schedule. This revised, pro-active management team will result in a far more effective management span as well as a diversified management operation for the region office staff.
