It's the end of an era at Columbus Police headquarters. Chief James Jackson left the job for the last time. WOSU was there as fellow officers honored Jackson's half century of service.
Columbus Police and Fire Pipe and Drum band played the United States Marine Corps Anthem as Chief James Jackson, a former Marine, exited the elevators with his wife, Mary.
Dozens of officers paid tribute to Jackson with a special good-bye ceremony, that lasted about two minutes, as he left the office for the final time.
