Implementation of Phase II Recommendations:
Thursday, March 15, 2018 (Time TBD)
Alachua County Sheriff’s Office: 2621 SE Hawthorne Rd, Gainesville, FL 32641
We aggressively seek and implement systemic solutions to racial and socio-economic inequities plaguing the Alachua County region.
Strengthening families and breaking the cycle of generational poverty through better access to child care, transportation, early education, support and mentoring.
Addressing schools’ achievement gaps, disparities in school discipline, access to early learning opportunities and a need to improve college/career readiness.
Focusing on the lack of affordable low- and moderate-income housing, the depressed level of home ownership among these residents and disparities in bus service for low-income neighborhoods.
Studying issues such as recidivism, jail diversion, the decriminalization of drugs and homelessness, mental health, racial disparities and disproportionate juvenile arrests.
