Russell Jones said after serving six years in the Navy as an Electronics Technican that he’d never put another uniform on, but Assistant Chief Jones is still his uniform and celebrated his 40 years as part of the Winnfield Police Department.

“I saw the opportunity to serve again, and service to people is in my heart,” Jones said. “I served in the military, I serve as a pastor taking care of people, and I wanted to serve. It’s in my nature to do.”

Jones is the first black, multi-ethnic, man to rise through the ranks at the WPD, starting his career as a patrolman, to sergeant, lieutenant and now Assistant Chief, and says his mission is to serve the city of Winnfield with the same compassion and dedication that he shares with his family.
