Accomplishments in 1996-97:

Officer directs a dog from the K-9 unit as the dog sniffs for drugs in a pink crate.
DOGGONE GOOD AT THEIR JOBS - Dogs from the canine (K-9) unit sniff for contraband as a Correctional Officer directs him.

DOG DETECTIVES — Canine programs at Tomoka CI and Union CI have been instrumental in the detection of contraband, both inside the institutions and the visiting parks, increasing public safety and providing a safe environment for staff and offenders.

ALARMING IDEA — By establishing a central parts inventory for perimeter fence alarm systems, factory training two staff members to troubleshoot and service problems with the system, and assigning each staff member to specific facilities, Region II reduced inventory investment and cycle time for system repairs.

R.I.P. - Jacksonville P&P 4th Circuit developed a Recidivism Intervention Program (RIP) in a cooperative effort between the DC and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office to contact and track monthly some high risk offenders, both on and off supervision.

PRACTICAL MEDICINE — A Mobile Ambulatory Surgical Unit at North Florida Reception Center (NFRC) allows more sophisticated surgery to be performed on inmates, while preventing the transfer of these inmates to outside hospitals. Another novel medical approach is the Chemotherapy Unit at NFRC Hospital, which prevents the transfer of inmates to outside hospitals for costly chemotherapy treatments and saves the DC $2,000 per treatment.

X-RAY VISIONARIES — Using the Heimann X-Ray machine, housed at Florida State Prison, has saved money by reducing the number of staff hours needed for searches and has enhanced public safety by increasing detection of contraband within the institution.
