The Clinton Police Department is very excited to introduce our 2018 Officer of the Year, Officer J. Jones. The award is based on an officer's work performance that best exemplifies the police department's core values of Integrity, Professionalism, Respect, and Teamwork. It is a prestigious award within the Department because the nominations come from the officer's peers and then is selected by a committee of past officer of the year recipients.
Detective J. Jones started with Clinton Police Department in 2015 right after graduating as the top-ranked student from the BLET program in Sampson Community College. In his current capacity, he works as a Detective with the Neighborhood Improvement Team (NIT) assigned to the Services Division. Detective Jones has demonstrated his desire to support the mission and objectives of the Police Department on a daily basis. He exemplifies initiative and a genuine willingness to serve. We are fortunate to have Detective Jones as a co-worker and a friend.
