Visitor Contraband Interdiction | June 11 – 18, 2018

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) has zero tolerance for contraband of any kind, and visitors attempting to introduce contraband are subject to immediate termination of their visitation privileges.

Whenever contraband is recovered on a visitor, local law enforcement is always contacted as well and they determine whether to make an arrest.

This past weekend, institutional staff stopped two visitors from introducing contraband into FDC’s secure facilities:

Florida State Prison: On June 16, the institution's K-9 team alerted on a vehicle which was shared by two visitors. Staff subsequently discovered narcotics and a firearm. One of the visitors was arrested for introduction of contraband and possession of narcotics.

As Florida's largest state agency, the Department of Corrections employs 24,000 members statewide, incarcerates approximately 97,000 inmates and supervises nearly 167,000 offenders in the community.
