APO Matthew Jackson honored for bravery

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Advanced Patrol Officer Matthew Jackson was presented a letter of appreciation and pin for going beyond the call of duty.

If you remember, last month, Officer Jackson's quick thinking and bravery helped him put out a fire at a home on East Lathrop Avenue.

The house caught fire right across the street from Officer Jackson's Downtown Precinct.

He sprinted over, ran into the smoke filled house and put out the flames.

Even though he's a policeman, Jackson told us at the end of the day, it's all public service.
