‘Jackson Five’ graduates from JPD training academy

Jackson Police Department 60 officers short of budgeted target

Just two weeks after the Jackson Police Department graduated its 63rd Recruit Class, the department held another graduation.JPD is calling the 64th Recruit Class the “Jackson Five.” All five new cadets were sworn in on Friday. The group actually started while the 63rd class was still being trained. It took the five officers eight weeks to make it through the Jackson Training Academy. In the past, it took 14 to 16 weeks. JPD Chief James Davis said the time is shorter now because cadets stay at the facility for the entire eight weeks instead of having the chance to go home for a few days.”Many of times, the recruits would go home on the weekend, but with the eight-week training, they stay here through the entire eight weeks. We are able to train them eight weeks, seven days a week, so we can turn them out on the street. That is due to the pandemic. It works for us, so they won’t be in the outside world and possibly get infected by the virus,” Davis said.The chief said JPD is just over 60 officers short of the number the department is budgeted for.
