    Pahokee Youth Development Center
    Contract Terminated

    TALLAHASSEE, FL�Department
    of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) Secretary W.G. "Bill"
    Bankhead announced today that DJJ and Correctional
    Services Corporation have jointly agreed to terminate the
    current contract for the operation of the 350 bed,
    Pahokee Youth Development Center. Correctional Services
    Corporation (CSC) notified the department on Monday, August
    23, 1999 that they did not intend to seek renewal of
    the current contract which expires June 30, 2000.

    Secretary Bankhead citing the importance of a smooth and
    seamless transition in the program has agreed with
    Correctional Services Corporation to expedite termination of
    the contract, targeting a 60 day window to complete
    the transition. "Once the decision was made by
    Correctional Services Corporation not to seek renewal, I felt
    strongly that it was important to proceed with the
    business of securing an alternative provider arrangement
    for this critical program," stated Secretary
    Bankhead.

    The Department and Correctional Services Corporation
    staff will work closely together over the next 60 days
    while in transition to ensure there is no disruption in
    services at the facility, and to augment and support
    current operations. "I�D LIKE TO STRESS HOW IMPORTANT
    CORRECTIONAL SERVICES CORPORATION�S COOPERATION HAS BEEN AND
    WILL BE THROUGH OUT THIS PERIOD OF TRANSITION," stated
    Secretary Bankhead.

    Press release verbatim.
    Upper-case added.

    • let's hope that CSC handles the transition of
      this facility as well as they handled the Clarinda
      Academy transition...there too, they assured folks that
      they wanted a "smooth and seamless transition..." 60
      days and one home plate later they had managed to
      alienate anyone and everyone remotely involved with the
      facility. I wonder what happens when they (CSC) don't favor
      a smooth transition? Land mines??

      I predict
      that CSC will be losing (I mean will "not seek
      renewal") of more YSI contracts (only because they are
      "unprofitable" of course)in the next few months. THEY DO NOT
      UNDERSTAND THE JUVENILE CORRECTIONS BUSINESS....
