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 2008-09 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 FY1999-00 to 1999-00, the number of placements increased from 340 to 667 in FY 2000-01.  The number dropped in 2008-09 to 239.

    • The number of different offenders active on Radio Frequency (RF) peaked in the most recent 10 year period at 711 in 2000-01.  The number in 2008-09 was at its lowest at 225 due to the gradual shift from RF to Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) placements.

    • As seen in the June 30th offender counts for each fiscal year, the status population dropped from 346 in FY 2000-01 to 99 in 2008-09.

  • Table 2B: FY 2008-09 Radio Frequency (RF) Monitoring Placements by Judicial Circuit

    • The circuit with the largest number of new placements during FY 2008-09 was Circuit 4 (Jacksonville) with 74 (31.1% of total placements).

    • Nearly one-third (30.6%) of the number of different offenders active during the year were being monitored in Circuit 12 (Sarasota), Circuit 13 (Tampa), and Circuit 15 (West Palm Beach).

    • As seen in the June 30th offender counts for each circuit, over one half (54.5%) of the status population is being monitored in Circuit 4 (Jacksonville), Circuit12 (Sarasota), 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, 2009.


  • Table 2C: FY 2008-09 Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Monitoring Placements by Fiscal Year

    • Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring began with only 3 enrollments in the start-up year (1997-98) and has jumped to 2,932 in FY 2008-09.

    • The number of different offenders active during the year has jumped from 669 in FY1999-00 to 3,429 in FY 2008-09.

    • As seen in the June 30th offender counts for each fiscal year, the status population has increased dramatically from 332 in FY1999-00 to 2,291 in FY 2008-09.


  • Table 2D: FY 2008-09 Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Monitoring Placements by Judicial Circuit

    • Circuit 11 (Miami) accounted for the largest number of new placements on Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) in FY 2008-09 with 272 (9.3% of total placements).

    • Circuit 6 (Clearwater), Circuit 11 (Miami), Circuit 17 (Ft. Lauderdale),  and Circuit 13 (Tampa) accounted for over a third (32.9%) of the new placements on Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) in FY 2008-09.

    • Circuit 11 (Miami) also had the highest number of different offenders active on GPS (305), with Circuit 6 (Clearwater) coming in second with 294.

    • As seen in the June 30th offender counts for each circuit, the circuits with the largest status population are Circuit 6 (Clearwater) with 200, Circuit 13 (Tampa) with 190, Circuit 9 (Orlando) with 186, and Circuit 11 (Miami) with 177.  These four circuits account for nearly one-third (32.9%) of the GPS status population on June 30, 2009.
