The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Internal Criminal Investigation Bureau Thursday arrested Deputy Jermaine Jackson, a 5-year veteran, on four felony assault charges under the color of authority and two misdemeanor counts of falsifying police reports while working at Twin Towers Correctional Facility.

Jackson was taken into custody by ICIB investigators at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday without incident.

The arrest came after several months of ICIB’s investigation that revealed the 35-year-old Jackson of Corona had allegedly assaulted two inmates on two separate occasions using a deadly weapon – namely his feet – and falsifying two police reports, which are misdemeanors. Jackson, who had been assigned to Twin Towers for five years, is currently being booked into the Los Angeles County jail system on $100,000. bail. The investigation is ongoing.

Jackson was relieved of duty without pay.

For further information contact LASD Senior Public Information Officer Steve Whitmore at (323) 573-2387 or (323) 267-4800.
