As the world’s eyes focus on Orlando in wake of the mass murder at Pulse early Sunday morning, Jacksonville’s leadership urges vigilance in its wake.
On Sunday afternoon, Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry issued a statement addressing actions taken by his office and the sheriff’s office in the wake of the tragedy at Pulse.
“While our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the city of Orlando, it is an incredibly sad day for our nation. As state and federal agencies work diligently to serve and support the victims, families and communities affected by this morning’s tragedy, the Sheriff and I have been in contact to determine how our teams can support and bolster their efforts,” Curry stated.
“To promote our own safety,” Curry continued, “we continue to ask Jacksonville citizens to be aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious activity or behavior to JSOs non-emergency number at 904.630.0500 or the IWATCH JAX hotline at 888.908.6368.”
