MPD officer receives award for saving girl crushed under grandfather clock
The Memphis Police Department's Facebook page tipped us off to this story. Officer Kevin Jackson transported an injured little girl in his squad car after seeing the family stranded on the side of the road. He received an award this week. I found the family through a property search and, fortunately, the mom and little girl were more than willing to talk about Jackson's heroism. Jackson, on the other hand, is shy. He did agree to do an over-the-phone interview. We're the first to jump on the story when a cop gets caught doing something wrong. It's nice to tell positive stories too.
