Jack Campbell

State Attorney Jack Campbell was elected on November 8, 2016, and took Office on January 3, 2017.  He was re-elected without opposition in 2020.  Since his election, he has been a leader in law enforcement locally and statewide.  His fellow State Attorneys elected him President of the Florida Prosecuting Attorney’s Association and he has taken a leadership role in legislative and policy issues statewide. He is a Board Member of the Florida Justice Administrative Commission overseeing the administrative services of 49 judicial related offices. He is also a member of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention State Advisory Group.  

He served as a member of the Leon County Children’s Services Council Planning Committee where he is helping to steer our community’s approach to juvenile crime and other needs and interventions. In the aftermath of the Parkland High School Tragedy, he was selected to be on panels to address school violence statewide.  He was also Governor Scott’s designee to chair the selection of the chair of the Florida Panel on Offender Review.   He was a board member of the Bethel Reentry Program assisting ex-offenders to reintegrate into the community and stem the blight of recidivism.  He continues to be a board member and a Scoutmaster in the Suwannee River Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Since taking office he has led several initiatives.  He has graduated from Florida State University’s School of Public Management and is a Certified Public Manager.  Most of his management team has either graduated from this training or is currently enrolled.  His office has been updated with the conversion of the office case management and records department to a paper-less model and the creation of a circuit wide diversion program that currently resolves twenty percent of the office caseload.  He also completed an expansion of both the physical size of his office and to increase the technology abilities.  Each of these expansions are helping to increase attorney retention, improve courtroom presentations, and save money.

Jack continues to work to make the State Attorney’s Office more open and engaged in the community.  Since taking office, he has rappelled off a hotel for Living Harvest Reentry Program, Danced with the Stars for Legal Services of North Florida, and been a Real Man Wearing Pink for the American Cancer Society.  Most importantly, he has instituted a program where all State Attorney Employees are encouraged and rewarded to do community service outside the office.  Our employees have logged hundreds of hours serving our constituents.  From cutting roads open in the hours after Hurricanes Michael and Irma, to serving the needy, to working with children, the State Attorney’s Office is filled with servant leaders.

Since being elected he has spoken and presented to classes at the Florida State University, Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University, Tallahassee Community College, Florida Senate, Florida House of Representatives, and the Florida Judicial Conference.  He continues to address numerous civic groups and local schools and enjoys mentoring our next generation of leaders.
