JSO announces town hall meeting to discuss body cameras

Six meetings planned, starting Tuesday

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office announced Saturday its plan to hold six town hall meetings throughout Jacksonville to discuss the topic of body-worn cameras for JSO officers.

The public meetings are intended to inform as many citizens as possible about the research that has taken place by JSO on body cameras, and provide an opportunity for questions and comments.

The first meeting will be held Tuesday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Edward Waters College Milne Auditorium on 1658 Kings Road.

The second town hall meeting is scheduled for March 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Florida College at Jacksonville North Campus Auditorium at 4501 Capper Road.

The event includes an informational presentation by police services director Tony Davis, followed by a public comment session. 

Planning continues for the remaining four town hall meetings. They will take place (one each) on the city’s Westside, Southside, Eastside/Arlington and Downtown areas in the coming weeks.

Anyone interested in speaking during the public comments period is asked to arrive in time to register prior to the meeting’s start time.
