Bureau Chief
(850) 413-9337
SunCom 293-9337

The Bureau of Sentence Structure (formerly Bureau of Admission and Release) is responsible for the audit and legal sufficiency of commitment documents; the accuracy of the automated release date calculations; fugitive identification coordination; implementation of case law decisions affecting the release of inmates; affidavits and testimony for court proceedings; grievances on sentence data and release date issues; and coordination with and assistance to judicial and criminal justice officials on sentencing issues.

Accomplishments in FY 1996-97:

  • Designed and implemented an automated system to identify offenders required to submit blood samples for DNA typing for the current prison population as well as established statewide procedures for new inmates entering prison. The aggressive implementation and on-going operation of this program provided the basis for substantial expansion of the state's DNA database and has provided valuable evidence for prosecution of individuals committing violent crimes in Florida and other states. This system was designed in order to comply with Florida Statute 943.325, and in cooperation with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
