Florida Department of Corrections Budget Statement

Florida Department of Corrections’ Secretary Ken Tucker commends Governor Scott’s leadership in creating a more efficient and streamlined prison system that saves Florida taxpayers more than $100 million annually. These savings are achieved by reducing excess capacity in Florida’s prisons generated through effective re-entry programs that are resulting in reduced recidivism. Additional savings come through public/private partnerships including privatizing inmate health service, which will save nearly $23 million annually.
