What Exactly Is Reform?

  • To put or change into an improved form        or condition

  • To amend or improve by change of form       or removal of faults or abuses

  • To put an end to by enforcing or                    introducing a better method or course            of action.

REFORM does not mean DEFUND

Who does police reform benefit? 


Bridging The Gap of Trust Between

The Police and The Community

Important Notice: This sheriff's election is an OPEN SEAT due to the current sheriff having reached term limits. There will be a new face inside the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office after the Special Election on August 23, 2022. That means this election presents an opportunity for you, THE VOTER, to vote for new policing strategies to be implemented across the City of Jacksonville to help reduce out-of-control violent crime and rebuild the public's trust in JSO's management and leadership (i.e, reform). For those voters who question the need to reform the Sheriff's Office, please understand that reform, or finding a better method or course of action according to Webster's Dictionary, is in direct alignment with the longstanding Sheriff's Office Core Value of "ALWAYS IMPROVING". In other words, JSO reform benefits everyone in our city. Yes, Everyone!
