Jackson Police Chief Joseph Wade held a press conference to announce several updates to the Jackson Police Department.
Assistant Chief Over Administration Appointed:
He first appointed the former Chief of the Gluckstadt Police Department, Vincent Grizzell, as the new assistant chief over administration for JPD.
Grizzel has served as a deputy chief with the Jackson Police Department for five years and has been with the department for a total of 30 years.
This is a way for citizens to report non-urgent crimes such as property crimes and some misdemeanors. This is self-reporting crimes For example, if your hub cap was stolen two weeks ago, you can enter a report online and then get a case number emailed to you.
Chief Wade said,
“That is a game changer for us. This will reduce our calls for service and allow us to have better customer service to our citizens. The brainchild is the Assistant Chief of Jackson Police”.
