Jacksonville, FL - Three teenagers are still on the run as of early this afternoon, following an escape at the Jacksonville Youth Academy on the northside Sunday night.
Three security guards at the facility, which is operated by G4S Youth Services, were overpowered by 15 year-old Justin Silva, 16-year-old Luther Davis, and 16-year-old Derek Browley.
The Florida Department of Juvenile Justice said Friday that it is conducting an escape review, which may include corrective actions.
And if a failure is identified on the part of staff or the contracted provider, DJJ says penalties could include termination and contract action against G4S Youth Services.
Here is a full statement from DJJ:
“As it relates to Jacksonville Youth Academy, DJJ is in the process of conducting an escape review and will determine what corrective actions may be necessary. A comprehensive investigation will also be conducted to determine whether all policies and procedures were followed. If a failure is identified on the part of staff or the contracted provider, they will be held fully accountable up to and including termination of staff and potential contract action against the contracted provider.”
