Police Services consist of the following broad programs;  Patrol, Traffic Enforcement, Parking Enforcement, Detective Division, and  Community Oriented Policing. These  services are supported by police administration and communications  functions.  Law enforcement coverage is provided 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week. Reserve police officers, police cadets, and volunteers provide additional support for these programs. Officers  perform all facets of law enforcement, including emergency response, enforcing  laws, investigating reported crimes, and acting as deterrents to crime.

The Jackson Police Activities League (JPAL) is a  recreation oriented juvenile crime prevention program that relies heavily on  athletics and recreational activities to tighten the bond between police  officers and kids in the community. JPAL is based on the belief that children,  if reached early enough, can develop a strong, positive, attitude towards police officers in their journey through life towards the goal of adulthood and  citizenship.  Another program aimed at  the youth in the community is the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.)  program.  D.A.R.E. is a police  officer-led series of classroom lessons that teaches children in the fifth and  sixth grade at Jackson Elementary School how to resist peer pressure and live  productive drug and violence-free lives.
