Local Community Invited to Department of Corrections Town Hall Meeting
The Town Hall Meetings are an opportunity for the Department to hear thoughts and suggestions on how the Department can work with community members in facilitating the positive re-entry of inmates into all Florida communities. Re-entry begins on day one of incarceration and continues upon release. Therefore, we must all work together as a team to allow these former inmates every opportunity to become successful members of society.
