As posted by the JSO on Facebook today (yes I know that the LEO is using LIDAR) 😉:

Jacksonville... we need to talk.

Even with us giving you a heads up about the citywide traffic deployment, this still happened last night:

🚨316 traffic citations
🚨296 warnings
🚨3 DUI arrests

Of those citations and warnings, 242 were for SPEEDING.

SLOW DOWN, move over for emergency vehicles, and ArriveAlive

They have no shortage of real criminals in the Jacksonville area. But arresting those guys costs money when they could be making money instead.

296 warnings? Sure they could use their time more wisely and solve real violent crime?
Well it could have been 296 more tickets... I'm actually impressed they let people off with warnings, they didn't have to.

IMO Warnings are more effective than tickets because people don't get the attitude. The reason why I'm so heavily into CM's right now is because - of that ticket I got.

Absolutely!

Notwithstanding homicides that are pending classification, there have been 20 Jacksonville murders in 2021.

Additionally, the property crime rate (which includes the offenses of burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson) is 52.9. :confused:

I agree with you and I am more surprised there were only 3 DUI's.

While the ridiculous and exaggerated moral posturing around "OMG SPEEEEEEEDING" hasn't changed, the picture is interesting.

It's not so long ago that a department wouldn't have considered publishing a picture with an officer's tattoo sleeve on display.
