TALLAHASSEE –The Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) is proud to recruit, employ and support our nation’s veterans and military personnel.
“We proudly support the men and women who have served in our nation’s armed forces,” said Secretary Julie Jones. “Their courageous sacrifice ensures the safety of all Americans and we welcome the training and skills provided by those who have served to our Department.”
In partnership with the Florida National Guard, FDC holds various hiring initiatives and events to provide employment opportunities for current and former service members. The leadership skills and experience obtained by veterans during their service make them excellent candidates for careers in corrections and law enforcement.
In addition to hiring former service members, the Department has a number of reserves staff currently working in our institutions and throughout the state. The Department is thankful for their continued commitment to our country while also serving on the FDC team.
As Florida's largest state agency, the Department of Corrections employs 24,000 members statewide, incarcerates approximately 99,000 inmates and supervises nearly 140,000 offenders in the community.
