Dozier Under Investigation

April 13th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

The Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna is under fire tonight for using inappropriate, unprofessional, and abusive actions toward kids in its care. After an investigation involving abuse that occurred in February, the regional residential services director and acting superintendent of the school was fired on Thursday. DJJ secretary Walter McNeil says problems at the school permeate the entire operation We recognize that there are systemic, operational problems at our Dozier facility that span the chain of command from top to bottom. With that, even as we speak, we take appropriate administrative and investigative actions. It is clear that we have to act decisively to change the culture of our Dozier facility.

In the interim, DJJ assistant secretary Rex Uberman will supervise daily operations at the school.
