Constable Hopes To Set Up A Community Policing Program

Smith County commissioners decide they need to do more research before voting on a constable's proposal. Smith County Precinct 1 Constable Henry Jackson is hoping to start up a community policing program. He says this will help make certain areas safer.

"Fix it where they're not afraid to talk to law enforcement and that's what community policing is all about, is building that partnership with two individuals, law enforcement and the community and make sure that they comfortable and safe and they can go about their daily activity feeling safe," said Jackson.  

Commissioners are set to place the item on the agenda next week.
