Accomplishments in FY 1997-98

Radio Unity
Completed programming almost all DC radio frequencies in Department of Transportation motor vehicles used to supervise inmate work crews, as recommended by Central Office Quality Assurance Review.
Education and Substance Abuse Programs
An increase in educational positions allowed for the expansion of 20 prison education programs and a 25 percent increase in inmate training slots. Implementation of the Dual Diagnosis Program at Jefferson CI and modification of Substance Abuse Treatment program contracts resulted in a 16 percent increase in substance abuse training slots.
Inmates at Work
  Inmates at work: A work squad from Region I clears a road, providing community service and injecting taxpayers dollars back into local communities.

Three Quality Teams represented Community Corrections in the Governor's Sterling Quality Showcase hosted in Tallahassee. The Circuit 01 (Pensacola) team, "The Computer Connection," was chosen first runner up.

Local area networks have increased in Region I from four to 11 in the past fiscal year. Institutions have been installing cable and personal computers for connection to servers at seven sites. With an average of 45 users per institution, 315 users have access to the network so far.
Showcasing Savings
