Office of Ethics, Compliance, and Oversight
Jacksonville has a very strong commitment to ethics in city government. In 1999, the Jacksonville City Council enacted a comprehensive Ethics Code for the city. Jacksonville's Ethics Program is innovative. Instead of just emphasizing laws, it attempts to train all city employees in the values behind the rules and regulations. Training for elected officials is organized through the Office of Ethics, Compliance and Oversight with the assistance of the Office of General Counsel. In addition, every department has a Department Ethics Officer who reports to the city's Ethics Officer and assists with the ongoing training of all city employees.
