Nacogdoches Police has new warrant officer

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - The Nacogdoches Police Department has hired a new Warrant Officer/Bailiff to work with the Nacogdoches Municipal Court.

Ken Jackson, a retired Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Warden, began his new duties January 27th. Since that time, he has been busy serving arrest warrants on those with outstanding cases in Municipal Court. Jackson also serves as the bailiff during Court proceedings.

According to Nacogdoches Municipal Court Judge Juanita Springer, the position will insure that a bailiff is present during all courtroom proceedings. "We are eager and pleased to have Officer Jackson working in the Court. His presence will ensure that all participants, including defendants and court staff, will be safer because of his awareness and knowledge of the dangers associated with a court environment", the Judge said.

Officer Jackson's duties will also include active pursuing defendants with outstanding warrants and making arrests. "Officer Jackson will be actively participating in the statewide warrant round up this year, and we anticipate he will be a great asset in gaining compliance from those who have outstanding warrants", said Nacogdoches Police Chief Jim Sevey. "It is important that residents get warrants cleared, because if they do not, they run the risk of being arrested on a traffic stop or even when they go to renew their drivers licenses", he added.
