Hinds County Sheriff reestablishes task force to support JPD

HINDS COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) — Hinds County Sheriff Victor Mason reestablishes a task force to support the Jackson Police Department and place more deputies in the city limits.

Sheriff Mason says his department’s Street Crime Task Force was established in the early 90’s.

“I’ve been working with the Chief Lee Vance, and we’re ready to solve these problems, so last Friday we established Operation Side by Side with JPD and our warrants division along with his police department teamed up,” Sheriff Mason said.

Now, it’s time to get deputies back on the streets of Jackson.

He says more full-time and part-time deputies will be patrolling North, South, East and West Jackson.
