Boot Camp

The Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rehabilitation Department has gained a reputation throughout the nation as an organization dedicated to the achievement of excellence. This Department has earned its reputation by encouraging creative and innovative approaches to the numerous opportunities faced by correctional organizations.

Participants sentenced to this program primarily consist of young men and women between the ages of 14 and 24 who have been adjudicated as adults. Prior to admission into the Boot Camp program, each inmate receives a complete and comprehensive assessment, including a physical examination, a psychological evaluation and orientation.

The Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rehabilitation Department Boot Camp Program utilizes committed, specially trained personnel. It is a cost effective, population reducing, realistic reform program which serves the offender, and ultimately the community.

Due to the nature of the Boot Camp program, visitation is a privilege that must be earned. The cadet is evaluated after the first 60 days of the Boot Camp Program. This evaluation is based on a file review and a satisfactory performance rating. Once these requirements are met, the cadet will be allowed minimal visitation.

Boot Camp is an accredited facility. Our program has resulted in a consistently low recidivism rate for its graduates – currently at 11 percent. We are proud that nearly 90 percent of all graduates are able to turn their lives and are now productive members of society.
