In an effort to build camaraderie with the community it serves, the Clay County Sheriff's Office unveiled on Wednesday night its new citizens' academy.Over the next 10 weeks, a group of citizens will learn the inner-workings of the Sheriff's Office."We were both pretty excited about trying it so we both signed up," said Seth Fowler, a Clay County resident who signed up with his wife.Fowler and his wife noticed their residential area had no neighborhood watch program when they moved to Clay County four years ago.So, they wanted to know more about their local law enforcement department."We've been extremely impressed with the Clay County Sheriff's Office and they're involvement in the community," Fowler said. "We're looking forward to seeing every corner of what they do."And they will, from seeing how specialized units like the SWAT, dive teams and negotiators work, to riding along with deputies on the job.To fill out an application for the citizens' academy, visit the Sheriff's Office's website.

Liaison team hopes to improve JSO's relationship with community
08/15/2018 9:19pm

Members of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office's newly appointed community liaison team said they hope to improve the department's relationship with the LGBTQ community.The appointment of the liaison team by Sheriff Mike Williams comes after the murders of three transgender women in Jacksonville within the past eight months.Members of the LGBTQ who attended Wednesday's gathering told News4Jax they were happy about the liaison team. Asst. Chief Adam Pendley volunteered to become part of the team. He felt his 25 years with the Sheriff's Office and relationship with LGBTQ members would benefit the community as a whole."Our goal is to provide an open line of communication to answer questions. To provide a link, so if people have questions and concerns they have someone to reach out to specifically," Pendley said.For months, LGBTQ activists, like Chloie Kensington, have been fighting for change and more protection."I hope that the community sees that we are doing something, and that the deaths of the transgender women of color in this city -- their lives matter," Kensington said.Some LGBTQ members say one of their biggest concerns is members of the Sheriff's Office misgendering transgender women during an investigation. Pendley says the liaisons will help improve communication."I think as we learn more and as that area of training is passed to other areas of the department, I think that relationship is only going to improve," Pendley said.Pendley and LGBTQ members feel the liaison team is the beginning of building a stronger relationship with the community.

Police identify man shot, killed at Arlington motel
08/15/2018 2:37am

A 28-year-old man who was shot and killed at the Kings Inn motel in Arlington was identified by police as Cornelius Adrian Holmes, News4Jax learned Wednesday.Officers were called just before midnight Wednesday to a shooting at the motel on Arlington Expressway, just west of the Southside Connector.Police said that, at the back of the motel complex, they found a man who had been shot. The man, who was later identified as Holmes, was taken to a hospital, where he died.His death was being investigated as a murder, the Sheriff's Office said.Motel guests told News4Jax that the victim was known by the nick name "Fat Boy" and lived in a room at the motel, where people can pay weekly for a room.One of the guests said he called 911 after hearing the gunshots late Tuesday night. "All I heard was four gunshots, really quick. 'Pow. Pow. Pow. Pow.' Then, a minute later, I heard a guy yelling," said the man, who wished to remain anonymous.Melissa Kendrick said she had known the victim for several months."He was shot, I believe, five times, and we all knew him. He was a father," Kendrick said. According to witnesses, the victim appeared to have gunshot wounds to his upper torso. They also said another man with a cellphone was recording video of the victim lying on the ground, begging for help.Another motel guest, who did not wish to be identified, said the victim was attacked after someone knocked on his door. "I know he would not have opened the door for someone he didn't know. That's the worst part about all of that," the second unnamed guest said. "I know him. I lived with him."Now, those who were friends with Holmes are struggling to understand why he was killed."If it was a robbery, why didn't they just take what they wanted and leave? I mean to be shot five times -- there's just no sense in that," Kendrick said. "They took away a father, someone's brother, someone's cousin, from what I understand, who was a really good tenant here and a good friend, as well."Police have not confirmed a motive for the deadly shooting. No suspect information was released.Detectives investigating the murder said they would be interviewing witnesses and looking to see whether there was any surveillance video, though there did not appear to be any security cameras at the scene.Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (8477).According to the JSO crime map, in the last four weeks within a half-mile radius of the Kings Inn motel, there have been two cases of strong-arm robbery, three cases of battery, a home burglary and one case of home burglary involved an armed suspect.
