In accordance with the Section 3.28-3.33 of the Policies of the City Council, prior to any distribution of grant or sponsorship funds from the City Council Discretionary Funds, approval by City Council is required. 

 

The Escambia County Sheriff Foundation was formed in January 2021 to support the mission, engagement efforts, and employees of the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.  Their request of $2,000 in discretionary funding is to assist in their ability to promote positive engagement opportunities between the Escambia County sheriff’s Office and the community.  They will utilize the funding to support various programs including Sheriff’s Movie Nights, Shop With A Cop, The Sheriff’s Blazer Academy and the annual Criminal Justice Academy Superlative Award Recognition.

 

The P.A.I.N. Memorial Garden will be an area in the Corinne Jones Park dedicated to victims of street violence mostly that resulted in the death of a young person.  It will be an area whereby parents or loved ones can go, sit and reflect on their lost loved ones.  The Parks and Recreation will have oversight of this project and the funding will be used for the purchase of materials to fund this memorial garden.
