Governor Rick Scott Proclaims May 3-9 as
Florida Correctional Employees Week

TALLAHASSEE– Governor Rick Scott designated the week of May 3-9, 2015 as Florida Correctional Employees Week in a proclamation signed on April 27. Since May of 1984 when President Ronald Regan signed proclamation 5187 creating “National Correctional Officers’ Week”, the first week of May has been marked to honor the work of correctional officers, correctional probation officers and correctional personnel nationwide.

“Through the dedication, compassion and commitment shown by our employees every day, this Department has helped hundreds of thousands of Floridians better themselves and our communities,” Secretary Julie Jones said. “This week, and every week, the Department expresses our sincere appreciation for the hard work of the thousands of employees who work each day to change lives to ensure a safer Florida.”

During Florida Correctional Employees Week, the Florida Department of Corrections will host a variety of events recognizing the hard work of our staff.

Please see attached proclamation.

Secretary Julie Jones Urges Medical Examiner to Release Findings

TALLAHASSEE– Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Julie Jones today sent a letter to Dr. Bruce A. Hyma, Chief Medical Examiner in Miami-Dade County, requesting that the Medical Examiner’s Office in Miami-Dade County expedite the release of its findings in the death of Darren Rainey.

Since the initiation of this investigation by the Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD), the Florida Department of Corrections has worked collaboratively with the MDPD, the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner’s Office, State Attorney’s Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and United States Department of Justice. The Department will continue to fully cooperate with our law enforcement partners and employ all available resources to ensure that a thorough investigation is completed as expeditiously as possible.



As Darren Rainey (below) was scalded to death by corrections personnel nearly three years ago and his is far from the only suspect death in Florida prisons, neither of these press releases make any sense … especially since inmates remain in grave danger.

Please sign these petitions to help protect two of them:



Thank you!
