Mission Statement


Escambia County Community Corrections is comprised of community-based programs with the mission of relieving jail overcrowding through court-approved sentencing alternatives, with an emphasis on public safety. Eligible offenders are placed into community sanctions, rather than in jail, to free up corrections space for more serious offenders. Rehabilitative and monitoring options include substance abuse treatment, monitoring services, substance use testing, community service work and pre-trial release supervision. 

FY 2017-2018 Accomplishments

  • Misdemeanor Probation Officers performed investigative work, probation counseling, issued warrants, worked closely with other criminal justice agencies and supervised more than 1,180 sentenced probationers.  
  • Provided intensive supervision for 438 defendants via electronic monitoring devices.
  • Participated in the supervision of offenders who were sentenced to Veteran’s Court and Teaching, Education, Accountability and Motivation Court. We were present for Escambia County Veteran’s Court quarterly graduation ceremonies. 
  • Check Restitution is designed to assist and educate chronic worthless check writers, as well as enable worthless check offenders to pay restitution and fees prior to arrest. This program supervised more than 697 cases and collected restitution for Escambia County businesses in the amount of $205,674.28.
  • Work Release houses qualified inmates who have been sentenced to serve a period of incarceration. These inmates are allowed to continue their employment while serving their sentence. We have increased our security measures and enhanced our policies and procedures. The Work Release Program was successfully completed by 204 inmates.
  • Pre-Trial Release assists in alleviating overcrowding of the jail and has provided intensive supervision for more than 2,032 defendants. Defendants released to this program must comply with court-ordered conditions while awaiting a date for their case to be adjudicated. Forensic mental health is a component of the Pre-Trial Release Program. Pre-Trial Diversion is most often utilized by first-time offenders as referred by the court. Once the offender’s required conditions are completed successfully, the case is closed and does not appear on his or her record. More than 1,212 offenders successfully completed the Pre-Trial Diversion Program. 
  • Community Service is designed to place individuals who are ordered by the court to complete a specified number of community service hours with agencies throughout the county. There were 577 community service referrals.
  • Court Services ensured the dispersal of accurate court information and provided courteous customer service to more than 10,000 citizens.
