Outage at Century Correctional Institution

UPDATED! February 19, 2016

Service has been fully restored to the inmate telephone system at Century Correctional Institution as of February 19, 2016. Thank you for your patience.

CENTURY, Fla. - Securus Technologies, the Department’s inmate telephone service provider, experienced an interruption in service at Century Correctional Institution on February 15, 2016 due to storms and a tornado in the area which severely damaged telephone lines and local utilities. Securus is actively working to restore service, but anticipates that the interruption may continue for up to a week, as local utilities are repaired. The Department continues to monitor this service interruption and will work with our provider to restore service as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


As Florida's largest state agency, the Department of Corrections employs more than 24,000 members statewide, incarcerates more than 100,000 inmates and supervises nearly 140,000 offenders in the community.
