TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Over the past couple of years, the community transition team has undertaken a few initiatives to enhance the success of those returning to Florida’s communities, post-incarceration. One of these initiatives is the Pre-Release Hiring Events.
These events not only provide opportunities for individuals to release from prison knowing they have job opportunities waiting upon release, but they also provide opportunities for institutional staff from various disciplines to take an active role in directly impacting the success of individuals in their care and custody after they are released from prison.
As Florida's largest state agency, and the third largest state prison system in the country, FDC employs 24,000 members, incarcerates 80,000 inmates and supervises nearly 146,000 offenders in the community.
