Dade Correctional Institution / Homestead Correctional Institution

There are several types of facilities in Florida, ranging from community work release centers to maximum security institutions.

The State of Florida operates almost all of its major institutions and most of its lesser facilities. Privately operated prisons in Florida are called "Correctional Facilities" (for example, Lake City Correctional Facility) while state operated facilities are called "Correctional Institutions" (i.e. Union Correctional Institution). Florida State Prison is the only facility in the state officially titled a "Prison".[citation needed]
