State Video Production Unit
Wins Top Award

Tallahassee -- The Florida Department of Corrections' video production department continues to produce award-winning programs. The most recent honor was given to Lee Berger, public information director, for his half-hour program entitled Keepers of the Gate. At their 1997 Video Festival, the American Correctional Association awarded the video Best Training Film.

The documentary is part of a series intended to broaden the public's understanding of the role of Florida's correctional officers by candidly depicting the diversity of the department's staff, their duties and working conditions.

Keepers of the Gate can be seen statewide on Sunshine Network on Friday, June 27 and Wednesday, July 2, beginning at 5:00 p.m.
