Gun Bounty Initiatives

Please click here to go to the Gun Bounty Program webpage.

In 2006 the JSO rolled out the Gun Bounty program, and through the generosity of the business community, was able to embark on an aggressive public awareness campaign. The program promotes the message "See It, Say It, Stop It" and is focused on getting illegal guns off the street and arresting the people who carry and use them. All this is done anonymously, through tips to our partner, First Coast Crime Stoppers.
On Thursday, May 23, 2013, JSO and some community partners announced that the Gun Bounty marketing campaign continues throughout Duval County. In addition, four Gun Buyback events were announced.
