Incident Operations Center Director
In 2013, the Department created the Incident Operations Center (IOC) in order to catalog and track all complaints and related correspondence received by DJJ. The IOC is responsible for monitoring corrective action taken by DJJ providers, including State-owned and operated facilities, following resolution of incidents reported through the Central Communications Center or Office of Inspector General. The unit is also responsible for conducting trend analysis as well as the daily reviews and assignments of incidents accepted by the CCC. The IOC is established under the Office of Inspector General and is staffed by duty officers, IOC analysts, a supervisor, and the IOC director.
Manager, Central Communications Center
The Central Communications Center (CCC) was established on July 6, 2004. The CCC replaced the Incident/Complaint Hotline Unit, which was established in 1994, and was under the Office of the Inspector General. The CCC is a user-friendly call-in center operating 365-days a year, with an emphasis on assisting Department, provider, and grant staff collection, retention, and dissemination of information related to the care, safety, and humane treatment of all youth served by the Department, providers, or grantees. Citizens with complaints related to Department operated facilities and programs can also make reports to the CCC.
All reportable incidents as defined in Florida Administrative Code Rule 63F-11, are required to be called into the CCC within 2 hours of the incident occurring or program staff learning of the incident. The CCC prepares a Daily Report of all incidents reported during the previous 24 hours (6:01 a.m. - 6:00 a.m.). This report is distributed to the Secretary and the executive leadership on a daily basis, except on the weekends and holidays. An email notification system immediately alerts predetermined groups of management staff of particular incidents on a daily basis. This rule describes in detail incidents falling under the following seven categories.
Some examples of reportable offenses are as follows:
The Central Communications Center is staffed by a CCC Manager, seven full-time and one part-time duty officers.
