|USING ACRONYMS - Probation and Parole Office staff in Circuit 15 participated in Correctional Quality Managerial Leadership training in March 1997. Here they are completing an exercise using acronyms.|
CQML Circuit 19's Correctional Quality Managerial Leadership (CQML) team developed a flexible work schedule for staff. This change expanded office hours for offenders to see their Probation Officers and increased productivity of staff.
PUBLIC SAFETY Probation and Parole Circuit 17 developed a partnership with the Fort Lauderdale Police Department and created a county-wide Sex Crime Offender Task Force, thus enhancing offender supervision by P&P officers and law enforcement officers.
LIQUID MEDICATION Martin Correctional Institution changed their use of psychotropic medication from pill to liquid form from April 1996 to the present, which resulted in a reduction in the number of suicide attempts by inmates and has saved more than $130,000 so far.
THE RAZOR'S EDGE Broward Correctional Institution broke tradition by using their own female inmates to install 1,800 linear feet of razor wire per month, thereby enhancing perimeter security and providing an additional work program.
INNOVATION AND EFFICIENCY Regional Health Services entered a cooperative agreement with South Florida Reception Center and Broward Correctional Institution to provide inmate medical consultative services to be performed within the institutions. This substantially reduced overall costs of medical evaluations.
