The only county-operated work camp in Florida, the Escambia County Road Prison provides a part of the manual labor work force for the Road Department, Solid Waste, Parks and Recreation, Animal Shelter, and Facilities Maintenance. Supervised by road corrections officers, our work crews perform various tasks for the county such as clearing rights of way, grounds maintenance, drainage projects and other aspects of road and stormwater maintenance. As a road prison, we perform all the typical activities associated with incarceration of inmates including internal security, administration, food service and building and grounds maintenance. In an effort to minimize food expenditures and work toward self-sufficiency, we use inmate labor in our farming, hydroponics and aquaculture programs. We offer re-entry programs such as a welding program where an inmate can earn national certifications in various aspects of welding, G.E.D., life skills/parenting class, 40 days of purpose, and A.A.
