PRISON LIFE

PER DIEM (FISCAL YEAR 2013-14)

Most prison inmates live in dormitories not cells. Florida State Prison in Starke is the only Florida prison where all inmates live in single cells.

It costs an average $49.49 a day or $18,064 per year to house an inmate in a Florida prison.

QUICKFACTS

Prison inmates work in jobs ranging from laundry, cooking and prison maintenance to prison industries and outside work squads. Community Work Squad inmates perform services under agreements with the Department of Transportation, other state agencies such as the Division of Forestry, counties, cities, municipalities, and non-profit organizations. In Fiscal Year 2013-14, the Department of Corrections’ Community Work Squad inmates performed almost 5.4 million hours of work in our communities, valued at more than $76 million, and after costs, provided the citizens of Florida with a net cost savings/ value added of approximately $45 million.

SALARIES

Revised February 2015

Certified entry-level Correctional Officers are paid $30,807.92 annually. Certified entry-level Correctional Probation Officers are paid $33,478.12 annually.

Inmates grow crops every year and are growing even more of their own food. Inmates are cultivating approximately 892 acres at 39 parent institution (53 locations) farms and gardens and six University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) facilities. The farm program delivered over 11.1 million pounds of produce from July 2013 to June 2014. While most prison farming programs have traditionally taken place outside the prison grounds, more of our facilities are starting farm programs inside the fences in our work camps, utilizing all the space available to supplement inmate meals with fresh fruits and vegetables grown by the inmates them­selves. These programs save taxpayers money and teach the inmates a viable skill.
