Inspiring success by transforming one life at a time.
Provide a continuum of services to meet the needs of those entrusted to our care, creating a safe and professional environment with the outcome of reduced victimization, safer communities and an emphasis on the premium of life.
Safety remains a priority, in everything we do, for our staff, inmates, offenders and the public. Looking forward, technology will allow us to take an innovative approach toward creating safer environments.
We must be accountable to those under our supervision, our fellow members and most importantly, the people of Florida through fiscally sound policy and strategic goals that complement our mission and vision.
Fairness and Integrity
We must always be fair and act with integrity. Our officers face difficult situations every day. We expect them to rise above these testing circumstances and be professional at all times.
Finally, we must be innovative in our approach to building a modern Department of Corrections. I expect Florida to serve as a national leader in correctional policy and embrace a best in class approach to creating policies that promote success for our supervised population.
Talent Development: We will invest in our members for their professional development, growth and success.
Inmate/Offender Programs: We will implement rehabilitative programs that support a continuum of services for inmates and offenders, resulting in a successful transition into the community.
Communications: We intend to promote a collaborative and transparent communications framework that engages all members and stakeholders.
Environment: We intend to provide healthy, sustainable and compassionate environments that are the foundation of our values.
