Special Event Held at Jackson Township Police Department!

Headed by Officer Evans, Jackson Township Police Department hosted their third Bike Rodeo with a local boy scout pack. Officer Evans described the event as another tremendous success “this is the 3rd year we have been involved with the boy scouts for the Bike Rodeo, where we have been asked to join in to teach the safety and laws that govern bicycles by Scout Pack 281 of Dallas, PA. We handed out pamphlets on bicycle safety and the proper helmets to the pack.  For many of these scouts, it was their first time riding a bicycle. The Jackson Township Park is a great place to learn how to ride a bike around the track”. Below are some photos of the event!

Hello, my name is Gerald “Jerry” Williams. On April 17, 2021, I was appointed by the Jackson Township Board of Supervisors as the new Chief of Police of Jackson Township, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

For those of you who do not know me, I come to you with thirty years of police service with the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP), and an additional five years of past municipal police service, having served in Plymouth Township, Plymouth Borough and Kingston Police Departments.

I held the rank of Captain within the State Police and previously served as the Director, internal Affairs Division, Bureau of Integrity and Professional Standards. Some of my former duties included being the Executive Officer to the Commissioner, Executive Officer to the Deputy Commissioner of Operations, Internal Affairs Investigator, Polygraph Examiner, Criminal Investigator and Patrol Trooper.

I am humbled by the faith and trust the Jackson Township Board of Supervisors have placed in me to move our Police Department forward and I look ahead to this new opportunity to serve the citizens of Jackson Township.

If I, or any member of the Jackson Township Police Department, can me of service to you, please do not hesitate to contact us at 570-675-8500.

Our Fleet.
