The Kona Crime Prevention Committee recognized Officer Erich Jackson as “Officer of the Month” for January in a luncheon ceremony Wednesday (January 6) at King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel.
Jackson was recognized for his efforts in recovering drugs, stolen jewelry and other stolen property during the investigation of a suspicious vehicle on Kuakini Highway. Jackson’s efforts lead to the arrest of the driver, who was on parole and had just given methamphetamine to his 16-year-old passenger.
As Officer of the Month, Jackson is eligible to become Officer of the Year.
The Kona Crime Prevention Committee is an organization that encourages community involvement in aiding and supporting police in West Hawaii.
