Statement Regarding Franklin Correctional Institution Disturbance

Early Tuesday morning, there was a disturbance involving a number of inmates in a dorm at Franklin Correctional Institution. Due to the deployment of regional FDC response teams, the situation was quickly and effectively resolved and resulted in no injuries to staff or inmates. At this time the facility remains on lockdown. The Department is currently assessing the facility for damages and has placed involved inmates in confinement pending disciplinary review.


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.
