Gov. Scott Appreciative of her Decades of Service
Governor Rick Scott today announced that Florida Department of Juvenile Justice Secretary Christina K. Daly is leaving the agency effective August 31, 2018. She has served at DJJ since 2006. More details on future leadership will be announced soon.
Governor Scott said, “Christy Daly has done a fantastic job at DJJ and has driven positive change through innovative leadership to build a better system of care for the thousands of youth they serve. Under her leadership, DJJ has increased collaboration statewide with community partners, strengthened evidence-based practices and has been recognized as a national leader in reform of a comprehensive juvenile justice system. Christy has dedicated 21 years to serving at-risk youth and I thank her for her service. I wish Christy the very best in her future endeavors.”
Under Secretary Daly’s leadership, Florida has reduced both juvenile arrests and incarceration statewide, while improving public safety through a more-balanced approach that incorporates a community-based, effective continuum of services that results in improved outcomes for youths.
