Prison Facilities: The 145 prison facilities within the Florida Department of Corrections are divided into major institutions, annexes, work camps, work release centers, and road prisons throughout the state. The major institutions incarcerate 85.9% of the state prison inmates. These facilities incarcerate only those inmates convicted and sentenced to more than a year.

Inmates are classified into these different facilities based on the inmate's needs and the custody (security risk) of the inmate.

Facility profiles contained within this section present only the major institutions that incarcerate state prison inmates. These institutions do not incarcerate county jail inmates or those offenders on parole or serving one of the five types of state probation.

Probation & Parole Facilities: More than 170,000 offenders are monitored and supervised by the 158 Probation & Parole Field Service offices in Florida. This includes offenders released from prison on parole, control release, conditional release, or conditional medical release and offenders placed on court ordered supervision including administrative probation, probation, drug offender probation, sex offender probation, community control, and community control with electronic monitoring. Correctional Probation Officers also supervise offenders placed on pre-trial intervention.

Probation and Parole Field Services' primary function and mission is to protect the community by supervising offenders commensurate with the level of supervision they require. Correctional Probation Officers enforce standard conditions of supervision stipulated by statute, as well as special conditions imposed by the court or sentencing authority, including victim restitution, substance abuse and/or mental health treatment programs, and other restrictions. Offenders are monitored through field contacts at their residences, employment sites and other locations in the community. Officers conduct investigations, including pre-sentence investigations, post sentence investigations, other state investigations and violation reports. Officers make appropriate referrals to assist the offender with resources available to complete their term of supervision successfully.

Facility profiles contained within the Probation & Parole Field Services section present Region information, as well as Circuit and Office information.
