— Turlock Police Chief Rob Jackson is back to work and “feeling great.”

The city’s top cop took an extended medical leave in April to receive treatment for an undisclosed condition. He returned to work last week, taking back over from Capt. Steve Williams who served as acting police in his absence.

“(I) am very happy to be back to work. I am also very thankful for the support my family and I received from my co-workers and the community,” said the 45-year-old. 

Jackson has been the city’s chief since January 2012.
