ID Project

ID Project.

In order to successfully reintegrate back into communities, released inmates need some form of identification. Without proper identification, the inmate will often be unable to obtain legitimate employment, secure housing, cash paychecks, open bank accounts or apply for public benefits. 

In order to assist the inmates with their transition back into Florida communities, the department has entered into discussions with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) and Florida Vital Statistics to develop an option for providing inmates with a state identification upon release.

Released inmates with identification can immediately begin the process of searching for a job, finding housing, opening bank accounts, seeking driver's licenses and cashing checks.
