Community Corrections Staff

The following programs are alternatives to incarceration that help the Corrections Department ensure public safety, promote responsible behavior and encourage positive lifestyle changes.

  • Check Diversion strives to assist in alleviating overburdening the Escambia County Court System. Multiple offenders are required to attend a program designed to assist and educate chronic worthless check writers, as well as enable worthless check offenders to pay restitution and fees prior to arrest, often precluding the sentencing of such offenders to jail.
  • Community Service is designed to place court-ordered individuals to complete a specified number of community service work hours with agencies throughout the county.
  • Misdemeanor Probation conducts investigative work, performs counseling, issues warrants and supervises sentenced probationers. Community Confinement is a more intensive form of probation supervision, which administers various monitoring devices such as electronic monitoring, global positioning systems and secured continuous remote alcohol monitoring.
  • Pre-Trial Diversion is most often utilized by first-time offenders as referred by the court. The offender is required to complete conditions, and if the conditions are successfully completed, the offender’s case will be closed and a nolle pros will appear on his/her record.
  • Pre-Trial Release provides a non-financial means of release from incarceration for qualified jail inmates.
  • The Work Release Program houses qualified and/or court-ordered offenders who have been sentenced to serve a period of incarceration.
