Executive Summary Workload

The workload section reflects the number of placement events and the number of offenders placed on a particular type of supervision/monitoring unit. Because offenders can be placed on a particular type of supervision/monitor more than once within a given time period, it is necessary to consider both of these numbers.

  • Table 2A: FY 2004-05 Radio Frequency (RF) Monitoring Placements by Fiscal Year

    • From FY1993-94 through FY1998-99, the number of new placements on Radio Frequency (RF) remained fairly constant. From FY1998-99 to 1999-00, the number of placements dropped dramatically, from 1,560 to 344, and increased to 670 in FY 2000-01. The number dropped in 2004-05 to 440.

    • The number of different offenders active on Radio Frequency (RF) during the year began at 1,504 in FY1993-94, rose to a high of 2,622 in FY1998-99, and dropped to 1,241 in FY 2000-01. The number in 2004-05 was 1,081.

    • As seen in the June 30th offender counts for each fiscal year, the status population fluctuated slightly from FY1993-94 through FY1998-99 but overall remained fairly constant. From FY1998-99 to FY1999-00, the status population dropped from 794 to 181 but climbed to 346 in FY 2000-01, dropping to 193 in 2004-05.


  • Table 2B: FY 2004-05 Radio Frequency (RF) Monitoring Placements by Judicial Circuit

    • The circuit with the largest number of new placements during FY 2004-05 was Circuit 13 (Tampa) with 63 (14.3% of total placements).

    • Nearly one-third (29.0%) of the number of different offenders active during the year were being monitored in Circuit 13 (Tampa) and Circuit 20 (Ft. Myers).

    • As seen in the June 30th offender counts for each circuit, 14.5% of the status population is being monitored in Circuit 13 (Tampa). Eleven of the twenty circuits had less than ten offenders being monitored as of June 30, 2005.


  • Table 2C: FY 2004-05 Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Monitoring Placements by Fiscal Year

  • Table 2D: FY 2004-05 Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Monitoring Placements by Judicial Circuit

    • Circuit 17 (Ft. Lauderdale) accounted for the largest number of new placements on Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) in FY 2004-05 with 170 (15.0% of total placements).

    • Circuit 17 (Ft. Lauderdale), Circuit 15 (West Palm Beach) and Circuit 11 (Miami) accounted for over a third (38.2%) of the new placements on Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) in FY 2004-05.

    • Circuit 17 (Ft. Lauderdale) also had the highest number of different offenders active on GPS (219), with Circuit 11 (Miami) coming in second with 188.

    • As seen in the June 30th offender counts for each circuit, the circuits with the largest status population are Circuit 17 (Ft. Lauderdale) with 96, Circuit 11 (Miami) with 53, Circuit 09 (Orlando) with 44, Circuit 13 (Tampa) and Circuit 15 (West Palm Beach) 40. These five circuits account for over half (53.2%) of the GPS status population on June 30, 2005.
