Jail Services


About Jail Services

In Florida, most county jail facilities are under the leadership of the Sheriff, with only nine being ran by the County, and one privately contracted.  The Florida Sheriffs Association supports both Sheriff and County/Private ran jail facilities through a variety of programs, training, technical assistance and service offerings.  Our priorities include increased connection and collaboration among the jail administrators through sharing of best practices, model policies and specialized training offerings.  We support jails in their efforts to meet or exceed governance requirements, compliance with Florida Model Jail Standards, and Florida Correction Accreditation requirements. Finally, we support jails through our strategic partnerships with federal and state agencies, corrections focused professional associations, and our valued industry vendor partners.
