ICARE Gains at Sheriff’s Town Hall

ICARE showed up in force and scored wins at Sheriff T.K. Waters’s town hall last month. Thirty-four members came and ICARE ranked high in news coverage. Here’s how our agenda fared:

  • Gang (Group) Violence Intervention – Sheriff Waters is bringing the National Network for Safe Communities (NNSC) to Jacksonville in November. This is a huge win, since ICARE has been asking JSO to resume a formal relationship with NNSC for several years. 
  • JSO talks with ICARE. ICARE has scheduled a meeting with Garland Scott, who leads the sheriff’s GVI program. Our requests to meet directly with the sheriff are ongoing.
