At is June 2, 2020, meeting, the Rotary Club of North Jackson recognized JPD Precinct 4 Officers Mylan Smith and Lakishia Younger as Officers of the Quarter for the First Quarter of 2020. On February 21, 2020, Officer Smith was responding to Domestic Disturbance call when he observed a Nissan Altima leaving the scene of the report at a high rate of speed. He immediately pursued the vehicle. Officer Younger was in the area of the pursuit and joined in. The vehicle proceeded to Northtown Drive where it hit a pothole that disabled it with a blown-out tire. The officers found the suspect in the car with illicit drugs, a large amount of U.S. currency, and an unrestrained 4-month old infant on the front seat. The child was returned to her mother and the suspect was arrested.

We thank Officers Smith and Younger for their service and their commitment to the City of Jackson. They each received a certificate, gift cards to Kroger,  The Corner Market, and the Manship Wood Fired Kitchen as part of their recognition.
