Miami-Dade Courts and Correctional Facilities Master Plan, FL

P/BA has recently completed the first phase of a corrections master plan for Miami-Dade County in conjunction with the County’s development of a new criminal courts master plan. The plan advances compliance with a recent DOJ Settlement Agreement by housing and treating an increasing number of inmates with serious medical and mental illness, and remedying an aging infrastructure. A key goal of the master plan is to consolidate the pre-trial detention populations from three to two facilities and facilitate movement to and from the criminal courts, thus eliminating the need to rely on extensive bussing of inmates. In addition appropriate new housing solutions for inmates with chronic medical conditions and/or acute and sub-acute mental illness will be provided. The County has decided to proceed with implementation of the corrections components of the master plan.
