About Annie May Jackson
Annie May Jackson became the first female police officer in Canada when she was appointed to the Edmonton Police Department in 1912, a daring and controversial action at the time. Constable Annie M. Jackson was entrusted with responsibility for upholding the morals and manners of girls and young women. She was respected for her kind and compassionate manner, and for her high moral standards. Annie M. Jackson died in 1959 at the age of 80, after she was hit by a car while crossing the street near her Edmonton home.
The Jackson Heights neighbourhood in northeast Mill Woods was named in honour of Annie May Jackson in October 1976. Jackson Road, named in July 1980, also carries her name. The neighbourhood park site became the Annie May Jackson Park in November 1992. On January 29, 2002, the new school in the Jackson Heights neighbourhood, situated on the Annie May Jackson Park site, was officially named Jackson Heights School, after its neighbourhood.
