Patrolman First Class Jason Bombard

 
Patrolman First Class Jason Bombard, 36, began his career with the Summerville Police Reserves in 2002. Within a year he was hired full time.
A graduate of Fort Dorchester High School, Bombard grew up and still lives in the Summerville area.
“I always wanted to be a cop,” he affirmed.
Bombard graduated from the Criminal Justice Academy, has trained in basic undercover narcotic work under the DEA, has taken radar classes, in-service training for domestic violence, updated law reviews, DUI training and myriad other professional development classes.
When he began with SPD, he worked undercover in narcotics. His goal is to work his way up to a supervisory role.
A family man, Bombard is married to a dispatcher. They both work days which means his wife could be dispatching him to a call. Fortunately, he said, they have not been in a situation where she has had to handle him in a life-threatening situation.
He has an 18-year-old daughter who is interested in pursuing a career in nursing.
He also has four dogs and was, at one time, interested in K-9 work. “Then I kept getting dogs and realized I didn’t want another one,” he chuckled.
His favorite leisure activity, however, is fishing.
“I have a boat and whenever I can go off-shore fishing,” he said.
Yet he doesn’t really like fish.
“I’m catch and release,” he explained. Bombard says he will eat fish occasionally but isn’t a big fan but he loves the sport of fishing. Mahi-Mahi and grouper are two he catches often.
He also, occasionally, hunts and when he shoots a deer he eats it. “I like venison.”
In what is left of his spare time he might read but more likely can be found working on his 2006 Mustang.
Bombard attributes the fact he has not been in any real life-threatening situations to experience, which, he says, hones your instinct. Spot-on instinct has kept him out of a couple of situations that could have gone bad quickly.
“This job is so rewarding,” he said, “basically you’re helping and protecting people who can’t do it themselves.”
