Working at Florida Dept. Of Juvenile Justice
Probation Officer (Former Employee), Sanford, FLJuly 16, 2012
Pros: working in the sun shine state
Cons: behind time on dealing with juvenile offenders
This agency was far behind time when dealing with juvenile offenders. I left the department in 1998 and their services were like that in 1978. One can not evaluate a juvenile ffender by using a point system. There were several juvenile offenders with at least 3 or 4 volumes folders and the point system used by the department stated that these offenders – more... should not be incarerated but put on the home monitoring system and no social service for the family. – less

Great working environment.
Juvenile Detention Officer (Former Employee), Clearwater, FLJune 25, 2012
Job Security/Advancement. It's a great place to work if you have the patience to work with juveniles. Great staff and management. My experience from working in the adult jails was an great key essentials to the department. Enjoyable part of the job was working with the youths and the hardest part was the youth going through the court system.

fun place to work and great people to work with
Senior Juvenile Correction Officer (Former Employee), Tampa, FLMay 31, 2012
Pros: volunteer overtime opportunities, chance of advancement
Cons: change in policies that were not officer friendly
Maintain accountability for the offenders and maintain accurate reports. I learned to be a better listener, to be more aware of my surroundings, objective and team oriented. Management constantly provided advise on how to consistently be a better and more observant officer. My co-workers were team players and we had each other's best interest at heart. – more... My co-workers were very encouraging and knowledgable. The hardest part of my job was the unexpected mandatory overtime and may end up working a 16 hour day if some called in sick. However, the most enjoyable part of my job was having overtime available if i need extra money and working with some great individuals. – less
