  1. Chief Jackson was one of the finest to ever wear the blue. His commitment to Winchester was unmatched. He will be missed by all who knew him. He was an incredible police officer who did things the right way. As a former city manager of Winchester I had total confidence in his ability to do his job. In addition he was a great friend who will be missed.
