Make recommendations for how the City of Jacksonville can better coordinate programs and funding for safety and crime reduction including: a look at corollary youth services, ex-offender, mental health and community engagement programs which appear to inversely impact crime rates, and increase overall public safety. The Task Force should establish metrics and goals reducing crime and creating a safer community. The Task Force should prepare its initial report by May 1, 2019 and shall recommend to the Council President whether legislation should be submitted to extend the Task Force.
