JACKSONVILLE, FL (July 12, 2018) - The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office recently launched a new map feature that allows citizens to search an address to find the assigned patrol zone and subsector. Additionally, with one click on the “More Info” tab, citizens will be directed to that particular zone’s webpage where they can find information about upcoming Sheriff’s Watch meetings in their area of town as well as contact information.
The feature can be accessed by going to jaxsheriff.org and selecting “Find My Zone & Sheriff’s Watch Meeting” on the homepage and in the slide out menu on the left side of the page.
Sheriff’s Watch meetings and respective programs bridge JSO and citizens and provide an outlet for people to get information from JSO about safety concerns and solutions. The monthly meetings, in the areas where citizens work and live, are citizen-led and provides an opportunity for face-to-face discussion about crime issues facing our neighborhoods. JSO police are active participants, and together solutions and recommendations are discussed and implemented. There is an accountability and more importantly, a bond that grows from people knowing they can come to a meeting to get a resolution to a problem, or learn the many ways crime can be prevented.
