  • TESTS GREAT, LESS EXPENSIVE Region IV continues to provide quality and cost-effective Correctional Probation Office (CPO) Basic Recruit Training. While local training centers charge anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000 per recruit, we train our own CPO recruits for less than $400 per student. We can also boast one of the highest certification examination success rates in the state.
  • SAFER RE-ENTRY Region IV entered into a partnership with the NAACP, Broward Sheriff's Office, other public agencies and local businesses to establish a Community Re-entry program. This program provides re-entry counseling, education training and placement in targeted jobs for offenders under community supervision as well as others being released from county and state facilities.
  • FAMILY LITERACY EFFORT The Even Start Family Literacy Program at Broward CI, Atlantic CCC and Miami CCC is designed to provide educational and developmental services to inmate mothers and their children from birth to age seven.
  • VALUABLE EMPLOYEE Bill Campbell, a Vocational Instructor at Dade CI, is saving the state $1,200 a month by becoming licensed in wastewater treatment testing procedures, which eliminates the need for service contract providers. He also encouraged two inmates to obtain licenses, which will make them employable upon release.
  • RESPONSE TEAM TRAINING Emergency response teams completed training at Glades CI in June 1996. This training required all Corrections Emergency Response Teams (CERTs), Confrontation Control Force Team (CCFT), Shotgun and Chemical Agent Squads to demonstrate their level of proficiency.
  • CAR CLASS This region established an automotive program designed to provide inmate work experience and job training in automotive repair and maintenance. Savings to the state in terms of labor and parts is expected to be more than $30,000 annually, while inmates benefit by learning a trade. This project was a cooperative effort between the region's Office of Education and Job Training and Community Facilities, with further assistance from the Office of Management and Budget.
