Jackson Students Learn about Detectives

On May 12, 2017, Jackson County Reserve Deputy Scott Davis visited Jackson Elementary School 1st graders to talk to them about, and demonstrate different ways police officers gather evidence.


Davis taught the students how officers use different types of tools to collect, record and store evidence that can be used in solving criminal cases.


Students asked questions during the demonstrations on fingerprinting, swab samples, photographs, crime scene logs, packaging of evidence, and how those things help police officers in doing their jobs.


Jackson Elementary 1st grade teacher Laura Smith arranged the visit and demonstrations with the Sheriff’s department to coincide with their reading and vocabulary class about being a detective and solving mysteries.
