April 7, 2014 - Chief Pruitt, Officer Dale Allen, Sue Allen and Chief Pruitt's son Zachary set up a bicycle safety booth at Turtle Fest at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center on Saturday, April 5th. The event was a huge success and we fitted and distributed 200 bicycle helmets and gave out lots of safety information. There are many more safe kids on their bicycles thanks to JICPD's efforts!

Florida Constitutional Amendment Petition
Placed on the ballot, this amendment will allow voters in November 2014 to determine if they want 33% of excise taxes ALREADY COLLECTED on documents to support the Land Acquisition Trust Fund. Increased revenue would allow the fund to acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands, thus improving water quality in the state. This is an already existing tax and passage of this will NOT raise our taxes. Improvements to such areas as the St. Lucie Estuary, Lake Okeechobee and Everglades will move forward more quickly. The water quality of the Jupiter Inlet and inland waterway will be directly and positively affected by passage of this amendment.
The legislature pledged to fully fund this trust fund about 10 years ago and gave a substantial portion of the named excise taxes to the Land Acquisition Trust Fund. Subsequently they have marked increasing shares of the collected excise taxes to general obligations, thus decreasing monies available to improve water quality in the state. This amendment will restore the original intent of the legislature.
