Miami-Dade Corrections Officer Jairo Bravo Dies of COVID-19

Jairo Bravo, 48, who worked at Turner Guilford Knight (TGK) for less than a year, died Saturday from complications of COVID-19. He is believed to be the first employee of Miami-Dade’s County’s detention system lost to the virus. Before that, he spent three years with the Florida Department of Corrections.

He was laid to rest by his family yesterday.

Detention centers have been a concern since early in the pandemic because inmates and employees remain in close quarters indoors where the virus can spread.

The Miami-Dade Corrections & Rehabilitation Department released the statement below:

Our thoughts & prayers are with the members of the TGK, the Miami-Dade County Law Enforcement, and Officer Bravo’s loved ones.


Two Miami-Dade Corrections officers are facing charges after they were caught smuggling contraband items into the Dade Correctional Institution, authorities said Friday.

Former Dade Correctional Institution Sergeant Travis Thompson and Dade Correctional Institution Officer Gary Leon Littlejohn are accused of bringing contraband cigarettes into the state prison complex and supplying them to an inmate in exchange for cash, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said in a news release.

Fernandez Rundle said Thompson allegedly received $2,000 for his actions while Littlejohn allegedly received a $1,200 payment from an informant for his actions.

Thompson is being charged with one count of unlawful compensation or reward for official behavior, a second-degree felony, and one count of introduction into, removal or possession of, contraband in a state correctional institution, a third-degree felony.

Littlejohn is facing one count of unlawful compensation or reward for official behavior.

"Receiving contraband while in prison allows some inmates to accumulate wealth, power, and prestige among the inmate population," Fernandez Rundle said in a statement. "This can lead to violence among the inmates and place correctional staff in danger. I commend the Miami-Dade Police Department, the investigators and prosecutors of our Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office, and the Florida Department of Corrections Office of the Inspector General for aggressively pursuing this investigation."

Miami-Dade Corrections & Rehabilitation Department

The Miami-Dade Corrections & Rehabilitation Department (MDCR) is a County Department serving all of Miami-Dade County's 30 municipal police departments, the county police department (MDPD), as well as state agencies. The MDCR is the 7th largest county jail system in the United States,[1] with approximately 2,906 employees.[2] [FY 2009–10] The Department is still often referred by its former name, DCJ for Dade County Jail. Miami-Dade Corrections Officers are easily identified by their white shirts with green trousers with gray stripe. Miami-Dade Corrections vehicles are identified by their green and white livery. MDCR officers carry silver badges, while officers with the ranks of sergeant and above carry gold badges. The badge is exactly the same as the Miami-Dade County Police Department to reflect the fact that they were at one time one entity. The MDCR operates six detention facilities with a system-wide average of approximately 7,000 inmates, and books approximately 114,000 inmates annually (312 per day). Several facilities are nationally accredited by the American Correctional Association, as well as at the state level by the Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission. The current director of the department is Daniel Junior, who was appointed by Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Giménez. The Department's headquarters is located at 2525 NW 62nd Street, Miami, Florida.


When the Dade County Sheriff's Office was created in 1836 to serve the newly created County of Dade, the jail function was a part of that office. There was one county, that later was sub-divided into four counties, Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Martin.

In 1928, a high-rise jail was completed above the courthouse on West Flagler Street. In 1930, the Dade County Stockade was built at S.W. 87th Avenue & 61st Street, This building later served as the Fire Department Headquarters for many years, and remains in use by the County Fire Department.

By 1950, the Dade County area had been reduced to its present size of approximately 2,139 square miles.

In 1954, the City of Miami completed a jail lock-up called the Stockade at 7199 N.W. 41st Street. In 1956 the City of Miami occupied a new headquarters and jail and they leased the Stockade to the Public Safety Department.

In 1957, a metropolitan form of government was established, and the Dade County Sheriffs' Office was subsequently renamed the Public Safety Department. The Public Safety Department's organizational structure, as determined by the Metropolitan Charter, included responsibility for police, including the main jail and stockade, fire protection, civil defense, animal control, and motor vehicle inspection. In 1960 a unified jail plan is proposed by Dade County. In 1960 the first Chief of Dade County Jail is appointed Captain Noah Scott will command 4 lieutenants, 9 Sergeants, and 98 officers. In 1961 there are 22 jails in the county. On March 25, 1961, a criminal justice complex opens with a 10-story jail situated between and attached to, the Public Safety Department Headquarters, and the Court House. The top four floors interiors are an empty shell, awaiting future growth. In November 1966 Jack O. Sandstrom is appointed Chief of the Jail Division.

On January 1, 1968, the City of Miami Stockade is now leased to the county for a period of 30 years.

On January 28, 1970, the Corrections & Rehabilitation Department was established by action of the Dade County Commission. Section 8.01(D) and Section 4.02 of the Metropolitan Dade County Charter, and Administrative Order 9–22. All duties and functions of the Sheriff's Office which pertain to the booking, incarceration, transportation between County Jail facilities, custody, and release of prisoners who are brought to County jail facilities, are transferred from the Jail and Corrections Division of the Public Safety Department and are delegated to the Director of the Corrections and Rehabilitation Department. Jack O. Sandstrom is appointed as Department Director. The department consisted of two facilities at that time... The Pretrial Detention Center, and the Stockade. Female prisoners were housed on the second floor of the PTDC at that time. In 1972 the City of Miami opens a new police headquarters, and the second floor jail located at 1145 N.W. 11th Street is transferred "leased" to the Corrections Department, on May 22, 1972, and is used as a facility to house women. It is called the Women's Annex.

On January 1, 1973, the Justice of the Peace Courts, Criminal Court of Record, Circuit Court, Metropolitan Court are all merged into the County Court or Circuit Court.

In 1974 the North Dade Detention Center is opened. The master plan was to begin the planning and construction of jails in local communities to service the local population. This facility is the only one built under this concept. In 1976 the North Dade Detention Center is closed and leased to the State of Florida.

In January 1977 All Municipal Courts are abolished, turning over responsibility to the Dade County Criminal Justice System.

In 1978 a new four-story Women's Detention Center is opened at 1401 N.W. 7th Avenue. Pamala Jo Davis is the Facility Director. All women are transferred from the Women's Annex. In 1978 The empty shell on floors 7–10, except for C-wing are completed at the PTDC. In 1981 the old Women's Annex was renovated and leased again from the City of Miami for use as a misdemeanor booking facility. It was named the Interim Central Detention Center (ICDC). In 1987 a temporary facility constructed entirely of modular trailers was opened with 400 beds. It was named the Metro West Detention Center. In 1988 two more temporary fiber cement structures were built on the parking lot of Metro West Detention Center. In 1989 a 9-story high rise was built with 1,000 cells, and was named the Turner, Guilford, Knight Correctional Center. The facility name was in honor of three outstanding local people.

In 1991 all original structures at Metro West Detention Center were torn down when a new 1,002-bed facility was opened on the Northern half of the property. Construction then continued and a 1,230-bed addition was completed over the old facility site, and was completed in 1994. In 1995 the existing Ward-D with 6 beds was closed and a new location in the Rehabilitation Hospital building with 30 beds was constructed in the Jackson Memorial Hospital Complex.

In 1996 $14 million was expended on water & sewer pipe lines and connections to a future site for new facilities. In 1997 $7 million was expended in the preparation of 115 acres (0.47 km2) of swampland for 50 buildable acres (200,000 m2), the working title of the site: Krome Detention Complex. The location of this site is one mile (1.6 km) West of Krome Avenue, with an entrance on Tamiami Trail. The first 500 feet (150 m) of the entrance road is shared with the State of Florida, Department of Corrections facility, the Everglades Correctional Institution.
