People’s Budget Now!

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office currently receives 40% of the city’s budget. Despite JSO’s consistent increase in funding, Jacksonville has not experienced a decrease in crime. Police cannot prevent crimes, they can only react to crimes. The People’s Budget allocates a generous 20% of the city’s budget to JSO, and it reallocates the remaining funds in a way that invests in the people of Jacksonville. This budget includes: Living wage job opportunities, mental health services, and strengthened city infrastructure. Crime decreases when the people are properly served.
