FSCJ to Host Community Conversation Series

Following the success of "Coffee with a Cop", FSCJ aims to further assist in strengthening community relations in Jacksonville.

Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) will host the first of a three-part Community Conversation Series in an effort to provide an open dialogue forum for the College’s internal and external community.

Following the success of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office’s (JSO) “Coffee with a Cop” program at FSCJ, the College aims to further assist in strengthening community relations with the introduction of this series.

The opening forum of the Community Conversation Series will explore the state of
relations between Jacksonville’s community and the law enforcement officers that
serve to protect it.

Students and community members will have the opportunity to pose questions and offer solutions on topics ranging anywhere from legal implications to psychological and sociological impacts.

A panel of FSCJ faculty members will provide interdisciplinary perspectives. Faculty members include:

* Director of Security Gordon Bass
* Professor of Psychology Dr. Penny Devine
* Professor of Criminal Justice Kimberly Hall
* Professor of Legal Studies Dr. Nick Martino
* Professor of Sociology Dr. JR Woodward

FSCJ faculty will be joined on the panel by Assistant Chief T.K. Waters with the Jacksonville’s Sheriff’s Office.
