Mayor talks public safety and Jacksonville Journey

"In fact, he included $6.1 million in Jacksonville Journey's budget proposal to fund 40 police officers, 44 additional corrections officers and 19 civilians. He hopes the city receives federal funding to offset the costs for the new officers."

"The Journey Oversight Committee has asked for $19.8 million in funding, down from the $31 million approved last summer. Most of the reductions come from no longer funding capital projects and eliminating $4 million spent on police overtime."
