Hello, this is your DBPD Facebook maven. I've been on vacation and now I'm back! While I was away, I received an email from our Lt. Tracy Miller concerning an act of kindness and compassion carried out by one of our police officers. I am proud to share the story of what our Officer Jonathan Jackson did on May 19, 2018. Thank you so much Officer Jackson.... "On May 19, 2018 at 2017 hours, Officer Jackson responded to 300 block of North Street, in reference to a 911 call. Upon arrival, he located a female with her six year old child. He learned that they were in our city staying with a friend, when they were ordered to leave without warning. They were left stranded on the streets without shelter, during a heavy rainstorm. In an attempt to help them, Officer Jackson drove them to a local family shelter. When they arrived, they were denied admittance due to a procedural intake process that did not allow admittance on the weekends. Concerned for their well-being, Officer Jackson drove them to a local motel and paid for them to stay in an upgraded room for the evening. Officer Jackson paid for the hotel himself. He never asked his sergeant, fellow officers or me for money for a room, he just paid for the room. Officer Jackson's very kind gesture humbles me and I am honored to work with such a generous soul. "
