SpotLight in Excellence

Honoring Officer Jacob C. Thompson.  In 1877, Officer Thompson was one of the first African-American men appointed to our department.  That fact alone makes his service noteworthy. But it is Jacob Thompson’s personal story that places him in a distinctive position in the history of our department as well as the history of this community.
