The Jackson Division honors The Hundred Club of Jackson for the 52 years of community service its members have provided to families of fallen officers of the Jackson Police Department, the Jackson Fire Department, and the Hinds County Sheriff’s Office. Accepting the award on behalf of the organization is Douglas R. Boone.

The Hundred Club of Jackson was founded in 1961; it was the 12th such club formed in the United States. Its mission, like that of the original club, is to be the first responder to families of local firemen and officers killed in the line of duty. The club assists families by providing for their immediate needs, such as financial and moral support. Recently, The Hundred Club of Jackson began considering grant requests to support the ongoing efforts of Jackson’s public safety components as well as to provide an honorarium for those selected as Officer of the Year at an annual banquet.

Within the last 12 months, the Jackson Police Department experienced the loss of two of its officers. Within 24 hours of each loss, The Hundred Club of Jackson was in contact with the department to establish a line of communication regarding the immediate needs of both officers’ families.
