The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has made a $513.8 million budget proposal to the Mayor's Office for 2022, and it's $29.2 million more than what the City Council approved for this year.

That increase includes $10.8 million more for its corrections division and an extra $10.8 million for its patrol division, Sheriff Mike Williams said.
