What strengthens relationships between citizens and police? We believe that happens when citizens and police can take a walk together; get online and hear from each other; go to a meeting and speak to one another in a relaxed environment; join together in a class; or on a ride along with a police officer. These are encounters where information is exchanged and trust is built.
Each Zone is divided into three sectors and each sector is divided into sub sectors. Click on the link below to view the sub sectors in Zone 1.
For more than 20 years the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has had a Sheriff's Advisory Council. The monthly meetings, in the areas where citizens work and live, is citizen led and provides an opportunity for that 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. These active members are our "Advisors". Please click here to apply.
