Do you have information about a past or present crime? CrimeStoppers of Mid-Michigan is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and allows you to submit your information anonymously. That information will be passed along to the proper law enforcement agency that is investigating the crime.

To protect and serve—the Police Department is bestowed with the duty of safeguarding all City of Jackson citizens from crime, and helping citizens when emergencies arise. Formed in 1873, the Jackson Police Department is now one of the best trained, most well-educated departments in the State. The Department utilizes a Community Policing philosophy to patrol the eight districts of the City which are known as PACTs.

In an effort to remain transparent to the community, Jackson citizens can get a first-hand look at standard Police Department operations and through the Citizen’s Academy—a program designed to give the public a working knowledge of local law enforcement personnel and policies.
