TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Secretary Mike Crews released a memo to all employees that outlined the Department’s revised disciplinary policies. Amending this employee discipline policy was one of several reforms announced by Secretary Crews last month. To view the complete memo, click

Secretary Crews said, “This is another step toward increasing accountability and transparency at the Department. Our employees should exhibit the highest standards of professionalism and integrity on the job, in the community, and at their homes, but if they break the law, they will be held accountable. This policy will keep those who break the law from putting the uniform back on the next day. I have made it clear that I will not allow the bad actions of a few to tarnish the reputations of all the hard working men and women in our Department. I have said it before, and I will say it again – our Department should be held to the highest standards, and I have zero tolerance for anything else.”


As Florida's largest state agency, the Department of Corrections employs more than 21,000 members statewide, incarcerates more than 100,000 inmates and supervises nearly 146,000 offenders in the community.
