BUSINESS CREDIT RADIO is indeed honored to present Mr. Anthony Schembri. In 2004, Governor Jeb Bush nominated Anthony Schembri to lead the largest juvenile justice system in the country and was unanimously confirmed by the Florida Senate. With a budget of over $640 million, 5,025 full time employees (including some sworn officers) and approximately 6,000 contracted employees, its mission is to reduce juvenile crime in the state. The Secretary is charged with planning and managing all programs and services in the juvenile justice continuum including prevention, diversion, detention centers, community based residential programs, non-residential commitment programs and probation services. In addition, the Secretary has research and development, programmatic and staffing duties. He monitors all state and federally funded programs, grants and appropriations designed to reduce juvenile gangs, crimes and CINS.

In 2002, he was appointed by Governor Bush and confirmed by the Senate to serve as Commissioner on the Florida Corrections Commission, which oversees the Department of Corrections. The Corrections Department has 70 major facilities, 26,000 uniformed officers, 73,000 inmates, 153,000 supervised probationers and a budget of $1 billion. In that post, he evaluated the efficiency, productivity and management of the department and issued reports to the Governor and the President of the Senate.
