Campus Police Officer Tommie Jackson was first on the scene Monday morning after a car on University Boulevard rolled over and ended up partially submerged in a pond and taking on water. Wading into the murky water, he was able to rescue both the driver and her infant. “This quick response could not have been made possible without the partnership we have with the Lakeland Police Department and the sharing for their communications division,” the university police said on Facebook.
