Despite the loss for the Turlock Police Department, Hill believes the City of Turlock will be left in good hands.

“Sorry for your loss, but I was down there a couple of weeks ago and Chief Jackson seems to have things well in hand,” Hill told TurlockCityNews.com in an email. “That was a very impressive operation.”

Nielsen’s salary has not been released, but The Chronicle reports pay would be between $99,576 and $122,316.

Fortunately our Chief doesn't buy into the police union baloney. He is tired of the whining for more money. Jackson understands the budget, and is cautious, if union members want to make more money, than go to Stockton.

Maybe because it's a goal set in ones career to become chief. And most of all a great opportunity to get out of California. Congrats to you. Wish you the best.
