Job Well Done Nominee

Detention Officer Latorya Jackson

Officer Latorya Jackson, while looking at the J Reuben Long Detention Center’s website, noticed a name that she had seen before. Officer Jackson believed the arrestee she saw on the website had active warrants issued by the City of North Myrtle Beach. After checking, Officer Jackson found there were three active arrest warrants for narcotics violations for the arrestee. Officer Latorya Jackson immediately contacted the patrol division and had the J Reuben Long Detention Center hold the suspect so the Department could serve the active warrants. The warrants, which were six years old, were served on the suspect. Officer Jackson, “Job well done.”
