Sheriff creates Professional Standards Unit



The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office hopes to build a better relationship with the community by creating a new Professional Standards Unit.

According to Major Mike Montgomery, “The creation and implementation of the Professional Standards Unit within the Sheriff’s Office will enhance the integrity, communication, collaboration, professionalism and enhance the transparency of the Sheriff’s Office.”

He said, “An additional benefit will be a stronger relationship with the community by enhancing our commitment to the citizens of Jackson County.”

The unit is commanded by a Captain from the Sheriff’s Office and will consist of two sworn sergeants, investigators, deputies from the Sheriff’s Office and civilian staff members from the Department of Corrections.

It is responsible for conducting all pre-employment background investigations, administrative internal investigations and will investigate allegations of misconduct within the Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Corrections.

The Professional Standards Unit will include a Technology Sergeant, who will supervise members from the Department of Corrections. The sergeant will be responsible for all technology related tasks within the Sheriff’s Office including the jail. Their responsibilities will include computer systems, records management systems, in car camera systems, audio/video systems and other technology related tasks.
