Information regarding FBOP preparations
(BOP) - The Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBOP) Central Office and Southeast Regional Office (SERO) have been closely monitoring Hurricane Idalia. The SERO Command Center has been activated and will continue to operate for as long as needed.
Every FBOP facility has contingency plans in place to address a large range of concerns, including natural disasters like hurricanes. These plans have been implemented at the institutions affected by the storm and the situation is being closely monitored.
As a temporary measure, certain incarcerated individual movement has been suspended and accountability procedures are in place. Where warranted, hurricane supplies are on-site and additional employees are available to ensure coverage throughout the hurricane. Evacuation plans will be utilized, if necessary. The FBOP is following security protocols to ensure the safety of employees, individuals in our custody and the public.(BOP) -
