Law enforcement groups provide water for Jackson area officers amid crisis

Law enforcement officers with several associations have raised money and provided bottled water to fellow officers serving in the Jackson area during the city’s water crisis.

The Mississippi State Troopers Association, Mississippi Association of Chiefs of Police, Troopers Coalition and Mississippi Wildlife Fisheries and Parks Foundation have provided about $2,500 worth of bottled water to officers with the Jackson Police Department, troopers serving in Jackson, the Capitol Police and MDWFP game and fish officers in Jackson.

Master Sgt. Scott Henley, vice president of the Troopers Association, said: “I thought about how hard it would be for law enforcement officers trying to work and take care of their families during the water crisis, so we wanted to show our support for them and their families.”

Besides state and federal government emergency crews supplying Jacksonians with drinking and non-potable water, many local and nationwide organizations have supplied and distributed water. While most of Jackson now has flowing water again, a boil-water warning continues into its second month for the city system.
