Community Corrections

The Community Corrections Division provides supervision of identified offenders to ensure successful completion of probation, community service work, restitution and other court-ordered requirements.


On October 1, 2013, the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners assumed responsibility for the jail operations previously operated under the Escambia County Sheriff's Office. The facilities now under the BCC are the Main Jail, the Central Booking & Detention Facility and the Video Visitation Facility.

Work Annex

The only county-operated work camp in Florida, Work Annex provides a large part of the manual labor work force for the Public Works Department.
