Pat Ivey Sworn in as Sheriff of Duval County, Florida
June 11, 2022
On Saturday, June 11, 2022, Pat Ivey was sworn in by Chief Judge Mark Mahon as Sheriff of Duval County, Florida, following his appointment by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis earlier in the week. Ivey is the sixth Sheriff to serve this community since consolidation.

Sheriff Ivey began his successful career at the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office (JSO) in 1994. He came up through the ranks of the department working in numerous areas of the agency. 
Ivey was appointed to the Sheriff’s Staff under former Sheriff John Rutherford in 2009, where he served as an Assistant Chief then Division Chief. In July 2015, former Sheriff Mike Williams appointed Pat Ivey to serve his administration as the agency’s second in command.
As Undersheriff throughout Williams' administration, Ivey was involved in all the agency’s operations – from internal investigations to contract negotiations as well as the overall strategic plan – leading the more than 3,000 employees in the mission to serve and protect our community.

As Sheriff, he plans to carry on the mission of driving down violent crime by leveraging newer technology and increasing mental health and special needs awareness among officers and the public JSO serves. He recognizes Jacksonville's success depends on the involvement of citizens from every neighborhood of the city, and every walk of life.
