DOC Launches Transparency Database of Inmate Deaths
Will continuously add new information

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Secretary Mike Crews announced the Department’s transparency database is live and can be accessed at:

http://www.dc.state.fl.us/pub/mortality/index.html.

The website allows users to search by facility, view the status of each investigation and manner of death, and includes the summary reports on 2014 closed, non-natural death investigations (when) conducted by the department’s Office of Inspector General.  Investigative case summaries from previous years will be continuously added.  

Secretary Crews said, “By taking advantage of technology, we are allowing the public to have access to the information about in-custody deaths that is available to us.  This is another step toward increasing transparency and accountability into the functions of the Department.” 

Creating the transparency database as one of several system wide reforms Secretary Crews announced August 20.
