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 2007-08 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 340 and increased to 667 in FY 2000-01.  The number dropped in 2007-08 to 269.

    • The number of different offenders active on Radio Frequency (RF) during the year began at 1,624 in FY1993-94, rose to a high of 1,652 in FY1998-99, and dropped to 404 in FY 1999-00.  The number in 2007-08 was 277.

    • 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 151 in 2007-08.


  • Table 2B: FY 2007-08 Radio Frequency (RF) Monitoring Placements by Judicial Circuit

    • The circuit with the largest number of new placements during FY 2007-08 was Circuit 4 (Jacksonville) with 80 (29.7% of total placements).

    • Nearly one-third (29.8%) of the number of different offenders active during the year were being monitored in Circuit 13 (Tampa) and Circuit 15 (West Palm Beach).

    • As seen in the June 30th offender counts for each circuit, over one half (52.3%) of the status population is being monitored in Circuit 4 (Jacksonville), Circuit 13 (Tampa), and Circuit 15 (West Palm Beach). Fourteen of the twenty circuits had less than ten offenders being monitored as of June 30, 2008.


  • Table 2C: FY 2007-08 Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Monitoring Placements by Fiscal Year

    • Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring began with only 3 enrollments in the start-up year and has jumped to 2,860 in FY 2007-08.

    • The number of different offenders active during the year has jumped from 3 in FY1997-98 to 2,978 in FY 2007-08.

    • As seen in the June 30th offender counts for each fiscal year, the status population has increased dramatically from 106 in FY1998-99 to 1,921 in FY 2007-08.


  • Table 2D: FY 2007-08 Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Monitoring Placements by Judicial Circuit

    • Circuit 6 (Clearwater) accounted for the largest number of new placements on Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) in FY 2007-08 with 312 (10.9% of total placements).

    • Circuit 6 (Clearwater), Circuit 11 (Miami), Circuit 17 (Ft. Lauderdale),  and Circuit 10 (Bartow) accounted for over a third (36.0%) of the new placements on Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) in FY 2007-08.

    • Circuit 6 (Clearwater) also had the highest number of different offenders active on GPS (319), with Circuit 11 (Miami) coming in second with 276.

    • As seen in the June 30th offender counts for each circuit, the circuits with the largest status population are Circuit 6 (Clearwater) with 176, Circuit 11 (Miami) with 166, Circuit 10 (Bartow) with 164, Circuit 9 (Orlando) and Circuit 13 (Tampa) with 156 each.  These five circuits account for nearly half (42.6%) of the GPS status population on June 30, 2008.
