FDC continues to keep parole and probation office at current location


The Florida Department of Corrections will not move a probation and parole office to North Palafox street in Pensacola.
 
The office will stay in its current location on Davis Highway, while the department considers other options.

When people who live nearby heard about it, they started protesting the plan.

They said the property is not zoned for a corrections office and they feared for their safety if it opened there.
Tori Rutland, a North Hill resident said, "It's wonderful to know that we're going to be safe, that my kids can still play around here and walk the dog and I don't have to worry."
Henry Rutland, a North Hill resident, said "I really liked that we won."

A statement from the Department of Corrections said they will "continue working to do what's best to keep families safe."
