MORE FLORIDA INMATES MOVED

The Florida Department of Corrections has increased the number of inmates received each week from Florida counties. The modification to policy allows FDC to increase the number of intakes from county facilities each week and directly addresses the growing backlog of individuals with felony convictions awaiting transfer to prison from county jails. Escambia County spokesperson Laura Coale said Escambia County will be able to transport about 14 inmates to state prisons per week.
