Mayor Demings' Seal


Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings has reconvened the Orange County Citizens Safety Task Force in response to the recent gun violence taking place in Orange County. The task force was first convened in 2020 to engage faith-based leaders and community-based organizations met to brainstorm solutions and strategies to reduce and prevent gun violence and violent crime.

The goal of reconvening the task force is to re-examine the 2021 task force recommendations, make modifications as needed, as well as to ensure the recommendations continue to meet the public safety needs of the community. The task force will discuss making possible modifications to the current report and the funding recommendations.

2023 Recommendations and Report

The Prevention, Intervention, Enforcement and Prosecution subcommittees presented final updates to the full task force on Wednesday, June 21, 2023. Please note, the recommendations are being reviewed by the county’s legal department. The co-chairs of the task force will present the group’s recommendations to the Orange County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) in August.
