Drug Task Force Agent retires from Jonesboro Police Department

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The Jonesboro Police Department said goodbye to a valuable officer Tuesday.

Drug Task Force Agent Ancel Jines received his retirement badge from Police Chief Rick Elliot that morning. The ceremony was held in honor of his 28 years of service. Chief Elliott said he's been a valuable officer and will be missed.

Jines said he's grateful for his years spent in law enforcement.

“I got the opportunity to join the police department in 1986 and never looked back,” Jines said. “So, I've really enjoyed it and I've had a good time.”

Chief Elliot said he will be missed.

“He's come up through the ranks to the rank of lieutenant. He's worked the patrol division, he's worked in the training division, and his last assignment was working with Drug Task Force. He's done a great job his whole time in the department,” said Chief Elliot. “He's been an asset to the department and the citizens of Jonesboro and the community.”

Jines said he looks forward to spending more time with his family.
