Sgt. Eric Jackson is a very people (kid) oriented person. Since he has been at the Marked Tree Police Department he has made a difference in so many children's lives. Sgt. Jackson started a coat drive where anyone who needed a warm coat could simply come up and get one. He stops during his patrol and plays basketball with kids, he counsels kids who are in need, and now he has started a program that he calls "Backpackin' with Jackson." This program is targeted toward school children of any age that need a back pack. Sgt. Jackson has gone into his pockets to buy backpacks and supplies for school children. Sgt. Jackson is also asking for donations in order to provide EVERY child a back pack. The back packs will be supplied with the necessary items for the school term. This is a program that Sgt. Jackson holds near and dear to his heart. He is that Special type of Police Officer that still cares about the youth of today. Please reach out and help if you can. Donations may be left with Sgt. Jackson or at the Police Department. The actual event will be July 28th at the Police Department. Come get hot dogs, sodas, chips, and most especially, a BACK PACK!!! Let's help Sgt. Jackson make this happen Marked Tree!!!
