Arrest Fraud Investigation – Anyone whose name was falsely used on a traffic citation or arrest and booking report has the option of requesting a fraud investigation. If the name was falsely used on a traffic citation, an affidavit must be obtained from the Traffic Violations Bureau.
If the name was falsely used on an arrest and booking report, a computer search is conducted in an attempt to determine a suspect. In both cases, fingerprints are taken and the Identification Unit will make a determination through fingerprint identification. Fingerprint cards are provided at no charge by JSO for fraud investigations and are available at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Headquarters, 501 E. Bay Street.
CASH, CHECKS, CREDIT CARDS or MONEY ORDERS are accepted.

Secondary Employment/Hiring an Off-Duty Police Officer
Secondary Employment simply means that persons/businesses in the community may request to employ the services of a JSO police officer/supervisor in an off-duty capacity.
This privilege is extended to officers/supervisors in good standing and that have received approval from the agency prior to any off-duty work. Additionally, officers/supervisors who work in this capacity do so on a voluntary basis. Occasionally, the request for personnel to work exceeds the resources we have available due to these challenges the rate of pay may fluctuate.
If you have any questions regarding hiring an off-duty police officer, JSO’s Secondary Employment Office is open Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and may be reached at 904.630.1953.
