Jackson Pd Changes Response during Corona Pandemic
Until Further Notice
In response to the Coronavirus, COVID-19, the Jackson Police Department will be modifying
our police response for the department. For non-emergency calls, a police officer will be assigned to take your police report over the telephone instead of a physical response. For example, calls for crimes that already occurred, no suspect present, and there is no immediate threat of personal safety.
Officers will still respond to emergency calls where a crime is in progress and when personal safety is in danger.
The citizens of Jackson are encouraged to call into the Police Department instead of physically coming to the Police Station. The phone number to the Police Department is 573-243-3151 for non-emergencies. Please still call 911 for emergency services.
We also encourage the public to tell our dispatchers if they believe they or someone else at the scene or residence are experiencing flu or COVID-19 symptoms, so the First Responders can take the appropriate precautions when responding.
Our Police Department will also be suspending group tours, public meetings at the police department, and any non-criminal fingerprinting services.
Thank you for your cooperation and patience. These are steps that are necessary for the health and safety of the Police Department staff and the citizen in need of our services.
