JACKSON, Miss. -   Civil Rights Leader Charles Evers was honored by Jackson Police Thursday morning for his lifetime of service.

He received the "Lifetime Achievement Award".

JPD Chief Lindsey Horton reminded officers that it's because of people like Evers, and his brother Medgar Evers,  that white and black men and women serve side-by-side on the force today.

Evers says he's seen big changes in law enforcement over the years. Evers says to continue moving forward, the younger generation has to step up and become involved.
