Jackson Heights is named in honour of Annie B. Jackson, first policewomen in Canada. Appointed to the Edmonton Police Department in 1912, she received world-wide acclaim when her photograph as a Policewoman appeared on the front page of the London Daily Mirror on August 8, 1913. By 1971, a development plan had been prepared by the City of Edmonton. Jackson Heights is a triangular shaped neighbourhood with part of the Mill Creek Ravine crossing through the southern portion of the neighbourhood. Almost all of the roads are named after someone significant in the history of Edmonton.
