Corporal Drew Jackson promoted to sergeant

London Police Corporal Drew Jackson has been promoted to the rank of sergeant, Chief Chuck Johnson announced Wednesday.

Sgt. Jackson has been with the LPD since November 2018, and was promoted to corporal in 2020. He began his law enforcement career at the Clay County Sheriff’s Office in 2014 after graduating from Clay County High School.

During his work at the LPD, Jackson has taken on additional responsibilities as a field training officer and a collision technician. His fraternal twin, Jonathan Jackson, was recently hired as a canine officer for the police department.

“It’s something we always wanted to do when were kids,” he said. Every time I saw a police officer I realized that’s what I wanted to do. It’s a privilege to get to serve alongside him and to live our childhood dream.”

As a police officer, Jackson said he enjoys meeting new people and working in a profession where no two days are the same.

“Really, it’s a ticket to the front-row seat of life,” he said. “You get to see it from a different perspective. You wake up every morning and put the uniform on, and you never know what you’re getting into that day.”

He said he also enjoys special details, like assisting the Secret Service when Vice President Mike Pence landed in London.

Jackson said he believes the London Police Department is one of the best in the country, as far as leadership and equipment.

“I’m looking forward to leading the officers on my shift and keeping the department moving in the right direction,” he said. “I’m honored to work alongside these men and women. They’re some of the best.”
