Members of the Garden City Police Department watched proudly as Mayor Don Brudie administered the oath of office to Kenneth Jackson, Garden City's newly appointed police commissioner, during Thursday's village board meeting.

“There's probably not enough kind words to say about his attributes and his accomplishments,” said deputy mayor John Watras, who ran through a long list of accolades Jackson has received throughout his career, including awards of merit, special recognitions and honorable memberships. He earned the PTA's Honorary Membership Award in 2010.

“We are so proud of you. Your accomplishments are outstanding,” Watras added. “Thank you, I can’t say enough.”

Jackson first became a Garden City police officer in 1985 after serving as a New York City Transit police officer for four years. He was assigned to the department's detective unit in 1990 and was promoted to sergeant in 1991, lieutenant in 1995 and inspector in 2005.

Jackson was also unanimously appointed to the village's Traffic Commission.
