Sec. 78.102. - Safety and Crime Reduction Commission.

The Safety and Crime Reduction Commission (the "Commission") shall be a citizen-led group whose purpose is to undertake an in-depth review of the various programs within the city and abroad which have been deemed successful and contribute to safety and crime reduction; this will include a review of, but not limited to, successful programs created and/or operated by community organizations, social agencies, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, the Duval County Public Schools, and the City of Jacksonville itself as well as programs outside our City. The Commission will investigate the efficacy of these programs and make recommendations for how the City can leverage existing resources and expand and/or implement successful programs to create a comprehensive community-wide anti-crime initiative, which includes components of public safety, education, mental health, literacy, positive youth development, physical health, neighborhood stability, crime deterrence, workforce training, and intervention and rehabilitation. The Commission may recommend funding for programs to assist with the program goals and shall oversee and evaluate annually the effectiveness of funds expended on programs in support of safety and crime reduction measures.
