Retired Jackson Lt. Gary Longmire watches over security cam footage inside the Camera Room inside the Jackson Police Headquarters on Tuesday, Sept. 26, 2023.

Latent fingerprinting, ballistics testing and identification, SWAT vehicles, and access to the department’s surveillance room characterized “Media Day” at the Jackson Police Department on Tuesday.

As part of JPD’s Public Safety Week, which began on Sept. 25, local media partners were taken on a private tour of the technology and resources the department utilizes.

Stephanie Graham, JPD Public Information Officer, led the tour, commencing with a presentation on the citizen-oriented resources to track and report crime, like Atlas One, a free, real-time app that alerts users of public safety incidents nearby. The alert is based on a user’s geographic relativity, while the alerts are classified as minor, moderate, severe or extreme.
