Special Committee of the Council to Review JSO Primary Facilities

​Background:

The location of the Jacksonville Sheriff s Office Administration building, and the Downtown Jail are important issues for the City of Jacksonville. I strongly believe the current facilities have exceeded their useful life and the location does not provide a favorable environment for inmates. I am hereby creating a Special Committee of the City Council to Review JSO Primary Facilities, to address the following matters:

Charge:

1.Explore the location, cost, healthcare, mental healthcare, and other issues involved in relocating the jail and the administration building.


This public discussion will allow the needs and concerns of the Jacksonville Sheriff s Office, Public Defender's Office, State Attorney's Office, Clerk of Court judicial system, other stakeholders who have a role in providing related services and the public to be addressed. The Special Committee shall meet approximately twice per month.

Deadline:

 The Special Committee of the City Council to Review JSO Primary Facilities is tasked to report its findings and recommendations on these matters on or before June 25, 2024.
