Accomplishments in FY 1997-98

Going to Camp
The Corrections Alternative Military Program (C.A.M.P. Jones) was opened at Florida Correctional Institution as the only basic training unit for youthful offender women in the Florida Department of Corrections. Through a partnership with Central Florida Community College, programs including basic education, wellness, life skills, and drug awareness are presented in a paramilitary environment.
The Dream Team
The Department of Corrections, Department of Juvenile Justice and the privately owned Morganti Construction Company entered into a partnership to build a maximum-security facility in Citrus County. This unique project benefited everyone concerned, especially the taxpayers.
Camp Jones
  Happy C.A.M.P.ers: These women are members of the first graduating class of C.A.M.P. Jones, a female boot camp located in Lowell, Florida.
 
Taking a Closer Look
Community Corrections in Circuit 05 has created a systematic way of increasing officer awareness of offenders who have committed a new law violation. Through the efforts of the Criminal Arrest Team, local law enforcement and community corrections compare "jail logs" with the data base in search of "matches" under supervision. This improved statewide communication has doubled the number of captures, helping to ensure public safety through effective supervision.
Slow the Flow
The Water Conservation Team at Brevard Correctional Institution has seen its efforts to reduce water consumption pay off. Efforts have resulted in savings of $40,000 and millions of gallons of water in 12 months.
Paying with Plastic
Circuit 09 began a pilot project in March 1998, which allows offenders on community supervision the option of paying all monetary obligations with a credit card. This is a new type of collection process for Community Corrections in which a fee for service is collected. Because of the ease of payment, more collections are made. The credit card vendors assume liability for fraudulent transactions.
