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 (1997 - 2004). The 2004 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 2004 populations at county jails and average incarceration rates by county. Table 3 lists average 2004 populations by facility. Table 4 shows the average 2004 felony pretrial population by facility and month. Table 5 shows the average 2004 misdemeanor pretrial population by facility and month.

*Please note: Due to major hurricanes and the resulting loss of data, the following months have a relatively large number of facilities not reporting. The exclusion of these facilities in the statewide totals has a significant impact. Therefore, for these months, the statewide totals are not true representations of the jail activity in Florida .

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 Jami Peacock or Brian Hays with the Florida Department of Corrections' (DC's) Bureau of Research and Data Analysis at (850) 488-1801.
