JACKSONVILLE, FL (January 29, 2018) - During the mid-morning hours of Saturday, January 27th, Sheriff Mike Williams was joined by members of his Sheriff's Watch group, many officers who work in the area, as well as members of the Sheriff's staff for a walk in the St. James Place West Community.
With each conversation with citizens the Sheriff asks them specifically, "How are things in the neighborhood?" and "What can we do to help?" He also shares information with neighbors about the Sheriff's Watch program and how they can get involved in the community.
Following the event Sheriff Williams took to his Twitter account (@JSOSheriff) to share a group photo from the walk: "Thanks to our partners who walked with us this morning! #community"
