Police Chief and Sheriff Reach Mutual Aid Agreement

Police Chief and Sheriff Reach Mutual Aid AgreementFernandina Beach, FL – Chief Jim Hurley and Sheriff Bill Leeper sign off on a mutual aid agreement that both say will improve relationships between agency members and increase operational efficiency.

The Fernandina Beach Police Department and the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office have reached an agreement which will allow both agencies to temporarily combine efforts during special operations, whether within the City of Fernandina Beach or in unincorporated Nassau County.

Both Sheriff Bill Leeper and Police Chief Jim Hurley point to this memorandum of understanding as a major step toward improved interagency cooperation and said that this agreement will lead to an increase in overall law enforcement efficiency.

Some residents have already seen evidence of this cooperation as the two agencies collaborated in a joint traffic enforcement operation last Friday.

Future plans include working together to improve communications, training, narcotics enforcement, and other critical law enforcement functions.
