Community Work Squads
Fiscal Year 2001-2002
The Department of Corrections has historically provided inmate labor, by way of Community Work Squads, to work for other governmental agencies such as the Department of Transportation, the Division of Forestry, Department of Juvenile Justice, Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, cities, counties, municipalities and non-profit organizations.
In total, these Community Work Squads performed 6,044,824 hours of work valued at more than $61.8 million, and after costs, provided the citizens of Florida with a net cost savings/value added of $33 million. Through the process of making these inmate work squads available to other governmental agencies and non-profit organizations the Department is able to assist these outside entities with their needs while continuing to fulfill its mission of providing an efficient corrections system for the citizens of Florida.
