Learn about New Improvements to Florida’s Probation System: REFORM and FL Police Benevolent Association Host Informational Webinars on SB752
REFORM is committed to creating real pathways to work and well-being for people on supervision. Our new law in Florida that went into effect this July is a great example of that. SB 752 creates opportunities for people on probation or community control to earn time off their supervision terms by pursuing education, vocational certificates and maintaining employment. These provisions are projected to benefit as many as 150,000 people over the next five years and contribute to safer, more stable communities across the state.
This is one reason we were able to bring together such a broad coalition of voices in Florida. We were proud to see people on probation, state legislators, and probation officers themselves advocating for our bill. REFORM will always work with as many stakeholders as possible to meet the needs of our communities.
To help spread the word about SB 752, its benefits for Floridians, and the example it can set for other states, we are hosting a series of informational webinars this fall in collaboration with the Florida Police Benevolent Association and several members of the Florida Safety Coalition.
We kicked off the series with a panel discussion featuring Sen. Jason Pizzo, Tammy Marcus, Tony Conyers, and members of the REFORM team. You can view the full webinar recording here:
