The primary objective of the Jackson Police Department is to ensure the highest possible quality of life for our citizens by promoting safety and lowering the crime rate.  In order to achieve this objective, we strive for excellence in all that we do by applying a combination of traditional and community policing methods and fostering partnerships with the community.

This website is only one of many means of communicating with the public that the Jackson Police Department utilizes.  However, this site will provide current, regularly updated information on criminal activities that may directly impact our citizens.  This information can be accessed by concerned citizens so that they can become more involved in the community by providing tips that may have an impact on crime in the City of Jackson.


It is the mission of the Jackson Police Department to improve the quality of life for all citizens in our community by reducing the problems associated with crime, jointly educating our officers and the public, and developing a co-active partnership with the community.

We will endeavor to be honest, fair, impartial, courteous, professional and responsive in the fulfillment of these duties.  This is our goal, our vision and our pledge.
