Florida County Detention Facilities' Average Inmate Population

Inmate Profile Summary
County Detention Facilities

This County Detention Facilities Summary provides an annual profile of Florida's detention facility inmate populations. Monthly Average Daily Population (ADP) figures include male, female, adult and juvenile inmates.

Table 1 illustrates county jail populations over an eight-year period (1995 - 2002). The 2002 population figures are arranged into felony, misdemeanor and "other" subcategories in Table 1A. "Other" includes the number of parole violators, state inmates, undocumented aliens, holdings for other jurisdictions and individuals detained under the Baker (mental health) and Myers (alcoholism) Acts. Within both felony and misdemeanor subcategories, the number of inmates sentenced, held for trial or sentencing, and those detained or sentenced for violation of probation are listed. Table 2 features the average 2002 populations at county jails and average incarceration rates by county. Table 3 lists average 2002 populations by facility. Table 4 shows the average 2002 felony pretrial population by facility and month. Table 5 shows the average 2002 misdemeanor pretrial population by facility and month.

These need to be taken into consideration when referring to the numbers presented in this report. Both Holmes County and Sumter County have been omitted from the entire report. Sumter County phoned in an ADP on a monthly basis which averages out to 152.3 for the year. The following is a list of facilities, by month, which did not turn in a report during 2002.

DC Rated Capacity Information

In reports prior to July 1997, information was listed regarding the Department of Correction's (DC's) rated capacity of each county detention facility. However, as of July 1, 1997 the Department of Corrections was no longer legislatively required to establish and monitor this information.

Questions pertaining to the statistics in this report or about the mailing list or report submission should be directed to Stacey Anderson with the Florida Department of Corrections' (DC's) Bureau of Research and Data Analysis at (850) 410-4488.
