I, Desmond Jones, would like to announce that i qualified as your Independent Candidate seeking election as Constable Place 2. 

I am married to the former Kelli Thompson of the Pearl River community. We have two daughters, Nalani and Cara, both 7th graders at Neshoba Middle School, and a son, Kai. I am the son of Annette and Peabody Griffin of the Longdale Community. 

My family and I reside in the Pearl River Community and we attend church at The Sanctuary in Philadelphia. 

I have been employed with the Philadelphia Police Department since 2007, currently as a Staff Sergeant. I am a certified Law Enforcement Officer with the State of Mississippi, graduating the State Police Academy (MLEOTA) in 2008. I've also worked 2 years as a jailer, at the Neshoba County Sheriff's Department.

I have completed numerous class certifications--Active Shooter Certification, Gang Certification, and Drug certification to name a few--within my years as a Law Enforcement officer. I've also been a Field Training Officer at my Department. 

With my experience in law Enforcement, experience in the courtroom, and years of serving and protecting the public, I feel that I'm qualified to be your next Constable of Place 2. If elected, my message to the citizens of Place 2 is simple: I will always be available for the people, I will always be fair, and I will always work hard. Working alongside our local Law Enforcement in any way needed will be a top priority, in order to ensure the safety of the Citizens of Place 2.

"Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others" Philippians 2:4.

I humbly ask that when you go to the polls November 5th, you will support and elect Desmond "Pete" Jones as your next Constable of Place 2. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me at 601-575-5404! Thank you and God Bless.
