Operation Showdown
Operation Showdown is an on-going law enforcement program was implemented in two areas of Jacksonville with a taskforce of hand-picked patrol officers in 2004. The initiative addressed drug trafficking activities as well as low-level criminal activities such as trespassing, loitering, and the presence of suspicious persons. Operation Showdown uses the basic premise of the 'Broken Window' theory, which states that allowing such activities to continue increases the potential that higher-level crimes will soon occur.


Showdown Evaluation
This presentation portrays what has occurred in the Showdown locations since the inception of the Sheriff Rutherford's Operation Showdown. Using maps that show a concentration of activity, the presentation describes how the locations were chosen and what has happened in these two locations since January 2004. The presentation also demonstrates an initiative in Zone 2 (Arlington) that was started which closely follows the tenets of Operation Showdown.
