Jackson has been jailed after he prepared fake drug wraps using granulated sugar to cover up his failure to investigate a case properly.
He was serving as a Suffolk officer when he failed to properly investigate three suspects over drug offences.
The suspects had three or four wraps of what was believed to be drugs seized from them, however Jackson failed to submit them for analysis. He also let the suspects keep the £800 which was found in their car.
Daniel Jackson was sentenced to 12 months after admitting to misconduct in a public office, and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

The prosecutor said three of the four men were found in a caravan at the site, while a fourth man was found in one of the tunnels, despite the efforts of some trying to escape, they were all arrested.
The four defendants, after admitting to producing cannabis, were sentenced to a total of four years.
