Resident Officer Program

Peoria Police Department

The Peoria Police Department is welcoming its newest resident officer to the East Bluff neighborhood.

26-year-old Officer Jo Paul Jones will reside in a city-owned home at 220 West Republic, PPD Public Information Officer Amy Dotson said.

Jones has already been involved in the neighborhood by volunteering for outreach programs, like “Real Men Read” at Franklin Primary.

Before becoming an officer two years ago, Jones worked as a counselor at the Gateway Foundation in Springfield and served in the US Marine Corps.
