The Code Enforcement Unit was created in October 2012. It consists of one police lieutenant, one senior code enforcement officer and four code enforcement officers.
This department enforces and documents violations of city ordinances, including:
Unsightly and unsanitary conditions
Grass and weeds
Nuisance against public health
Administrates the Condemnation of dilapidated structures
In addition, The Quality of Life Unit has started a Crime Free Multi-Housing program aimed at eliminating crime from rental property. The Unit has also formed partnerships with the several neighborhood associations, the Northeast Arkansas Landlord Association, and the International Crime Free Association.
Working together with these groups, as well as all the departments within Jonesboro City Government, the Unit strives to improve the quality of life of all Jonesboro residents and visitors
