  • CATFISH FARMING Cross City Correctional Institution (CI) began experimenting with catfish farming with the help of a citizen volunteer who provides technical aquaculture advice. The program uses inmate labor, reduces meal costs and saves taxpayers money.
  • LITERACY AWARD The education program at Tomoka CI was recognized by Laubach Literacy Action with a national award of excellence for their outstanding special initiatives in inmate education.
  • SCARED WRITE The New River CI education program, through its "Scared Write" initiative, used a Department of Education innovative grant to produce and distribute "The Choice is Yours," a book of inmate essays designed to prevent young people from making similar mistakes with their lives.
  • COMMUNICATING BETTER The Region II Personnel Office has encouraged and facilitated use of televised downlink training at central locations to increase cost savings. This Office also includes lead/senior technicians in quarterly personnel manager meetings to expand trainee groups and improve the flow of information to front line workers.
