Ulysses Jackson

Officer Ulysses Jackson was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a man for chasing a woman with a knife.

He twice subdued the man, but did not handcuff him, as it was against department policy to do so. The suspect then began to struggle with Officer Jackson again, gained control of his weapon, and shot him in the head. He then shot him in the head five more times as he lay on the ground. The suspect was later shot and killed by other officers.

Officer Jackson had served with the Chattanooga Police Department for 18 months. He was survived by his wife.

Over the past 20 years I have walked and patrolled the same beat on the Soithside and worked the same district where you lost your life 67 years ago. Often times I think of you as I ride down that street. My Brother you maybe gone but not forgotten. God Speed my friend we shall patrol the streets together in the future. See you when I get there.
