[ARCHIVED] Police Blotter


June 24-25, 2020

The police sergeant is a key member of any police department.  While the chief and lieutenant lead and determine policy for the department, it is the sergeant who runs the day to day operations at the patrol level.  The sergeant has the most daily contact with the officers on her/his team and has the greatest effect on work quality, attitudes and the general culture of the department.  We have an outstanding team of sergeants at the Jackson Police Department and you won’t find a better group of men and women doing their best to make sure we’re doing it right.  As an example, the shift sergeant was review policy with his team this morning.  Part of that the discussion was a frequently quoted phrase within our department that says, "Just because you can do something, it doesn’t mean you should."  This is how we train our officers and is part of our culture to go along with Chief Smith’s direction to, "Do the right thing…no matter what the situation is."  Do we always get it right?  Not always.  We’re not perfect, but when we get it wrong we acknowledge it, fix it, and try and do it better the next time.

On to the blotter!
