Faith and Blue activities

The Jackson Police Department will host its Faith & Blue Weekend this Friday through Monday.

The annual event allows people of all backgrounds to work with those who uphold our laws to create a more just and equitable union. These events are also a great opportunity for residents to get to know the officers who serve them, and have a candid discussion on strengthening community engagement.

The participation of residents is vital to the future success of Jackson.
