Escambia County Road Prison Chief Jeff Bohannon Roasted

April 30, 2011

Escambia County Road Prison Division Manager Jeff Bohannon was “roasted” by employees and prisoners alike Friday afternoon as he retires from the facility after 14 years of service.

During his tenure, Bohannon was instrumental in the development and administration of an educational and rehabilitation program for the inmates.

The Escambia County Road Prison is the only county-operated work camp in Florida, providing a large part of the manual labor for the Roads and Bridges Division from an 80-acre compound in Cantonment. Supervised by correctional officers, road prison work crews perform various tasks for the county such as clearing rights-of-way, grounds maintenance, drainage projects, and other aspects of road and stormwater maintenance.

    Didn’t know Bowman, that’s what I called him when I worked with him at prison. He was an Admin Asst IV for Lewis. I learned so much from him prior to him leaving to join the engineering division. I brought back a lot what he taught me, professional and personal back home where it has landed me great career. I remember him and his wife Nita as a beatiful loving relationship after years of marriage. Congrats Jeff on your retirement.

    I would like to congratulate Mr. Bohannon, and wish him a well deserved retirement. I was at the “camp” briefly, and was a part of the “molino jail”
    retro. I think that the ECRP should be held as a model for other counties in FL. and other states as well.As far as incarceration goes, It was a unique and well apreciated experience for myself. I believe that the ECRP is a great tool to help prisoners discover self worth and is invaluable to the sorrounding communities that it and the prisoners there-of maintain . Best Wishes

    Congratulations to a wonderful man who cares for the inmates and want them fully restored to a meaniful chance in life. More folks like him would soon greatly lower the prison population as these men find a productive place in society with newly developed skills and respect for others. Have a happy retirement!
