STERLING SHOWCASE WINNER The Central Florida Reception Center's "Waves and Images" team set the benchmark for measuring quality with their efforts as the first in the DC to win an "AQP" Regional Showcase competition. As winners, they earned the privilege of competing in the statewide Sterling Award Showcase competition where they were the recipients of the Outstanding Vendor Impact Award.
RISKY BUSINESS P&P Circuit 5, piloted a program using a risk classification model, which predicts the likelihood an offender will re-offend, technically revoke, or abscond during their term of supervision. The model was developed in conjunction with the National Institute of Justice and uses specific characteristics of the offender to determine probabilities of failure, which then identifies the appropriate level of supervision.
SERVICE TO OUR NATION'S VETERANS Sumter Correctional Institution developed a partnership with Florida National Cemetery to help enhance the cemetery beautification program by providing inmate labor on a weekly basis to help with grounds maintenance, laying of sod and setting of headstones.
COMMUNITY POLICING Circuit 18, Community Corrections has partnered with the Seminole County Neighborhood Policing effort, a community-based coalition of private and public resources within Seminole County to provide effective and efficient criminal justice services. This coalition could serve as a national model for neighborhood corrections.
PREPARING INMATES FOR RELEASE Two Brevard Community College instructors teach a state-sponsored inmate transition program at Brevard CI. This three-week classroom course, which is supplemented by Job Services and other local providers, stresses job seeking skills, goal setting, family relationships, financial stability, cognitive thinking and other vital life skills. Since inception in May 1996, 670 inmates within 60 days of release have successfully completed the program.
RINGING UP SAVINGS The Regional Business Office is collecting telephone systems that other agencies have outgrown and replaced. These systems are screened, then placed in facilities that need new or additional equipment. This program has saved $180,000 in equipment costs.
