Calling Florida's criminal justice system "broken," and pointing to high rates of re-incarceration and growing costs to keep inmates in prison, the Florida ACLU and Lee County NAACP  are sponsoring a public forum Thursday night in Fort Myers to discuss reform.

The University of South Florida and Pasco County are dedicating a new outdoor forensic training facility, referred to by some as a “body farm,” to help train a new generation of forensic scientists 

Tallahassee Police have to wait until the end of September to find out if they’ll receive their first ever grant for more officers to wear body cameras. The federal grant is expected to cost $675,000.

A "body farm" where researchers can study how corpses decompose will open next week in the Tampa Bay area with the burial of four donated bodies.

Officials from Pasco County and the University of South Florida attended a dedication ceremony Friday for the Adam Kennedy Forensics Field, a three and a half acre patch of land on the grounds of the Pasco Sheriff's detention facility in Land O' Lakes, just north of Tampa.
