Sheriff Mike Williams, JSO
Sheriff Mike Williams has demonstrated his ability to lead the fight against crime with a proven record of innovation and a commitment to serving every citizen in every neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida. Born and raised in Jacksonville, he and his wife are proud to call Jacksonville home for their three sons.
After serving in the Air National Guard, Sheriff Williams began his successful career at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office (JSO) in 1991. During more than 22 years on the force, he worked at every level of the agency. From his very first day as a police officer, he never forgot that the agency’s success depends on all officers listening to the community they serve and working together. This is a primary tenant of his administration.
Since being elected in 2015 to serve the City of Jacksonville as its fifth Sheriff, Mike Williams has demonstrated his commitment to driving down violent crime by leveraging newer technology including body cameras and gunfire detection systems to solve crimes. He is further growing the public’s trust in the JSO through his mandate for enhanced transparency. Sheriff Williams continues to highlight the use of diversion programming; increase mental health and special needs awareness among officers and the public JSO serves. He recognizes Jacksonville’s success depends on the involvement of citizens from every neighborhood of the city and every walk of life.
