The Little Rock Police Department has organized Little Rock into three geographic divisions, Downtown, Southwest and Northwest.

If you live in the Northwest Division, LRPD will be slow to respond to your calls if at all. Response time for the Northwest division is much slower that the other two divisions.
LRPD Officer Richard Hilgeman calls the delayed response "stressful."

Hilgeman said there is a slightly delayed response time for people who live in the city's Northwest Division.

According to statistics from June 2016 the slight delay is almost double for the Northwest division than in the Downtown and Southwest divisions. 

Hilgeman said they're still working to open a new police substation in west Little Rock at the Pankey Community Center which he says should lower response times. He says adding more police officers would lower the response times as well.

In November of 2013 the Little Rock Board of Directors approved the creation of the LRPD Panky Substation in the vacant and never used Josephine Pankey Education Center.  The center sits on property that was owned by the Little Rock Public School District and deeded to the city in February 2014. One million dollars from  a one cent sales tax measure is to be used to make internal improvements and complete the parking lot (unless the city used the funds for other purposes).

The existing Northwest Division station is located at 10001 Kanis Road and is only 6 miles or 10 minutes from the Josephine Pankey Education Center at 13640 Cantrell Road.

A call made to LRPD on August 1st about a stolen lawnmower in West Little Rock, had a much longer response time.

At approximately 7:30 p.m. a WLR homeowner observed three black males in a white Chevrolet SUV with Arkansas license plate 845 WTF drive off with their lawnmower. A call was immediately made to 911. Almost three and a half hours later, LRPD stopped in (without the lawnmover).  The residence where the theft took place is approximately 2 miles from the Northwest LRPD Station.  Incredible.

LRPD needs to stop making excuses and don that expensive riot gear and protect the citizens of Little Rock.

As long as a majority of LRPD personnel refuse to live in the city, the problems are just going to continue to grow.

Bryant High School teacher accused of sexual misconduct with a student

The Bryant Police Department confirms an on-going investigation of a now former Bryant teacher, Heather Danielle (Hall) Hare. Hare (age 32) has been accused of sexual contact with a student.  Hare was featured on ABC Good Morning America in May 2020 when a course she taught was discontinued during the pandemic. At this point no details of the alleged illegal conduct have been released. Earlier today the school district posted this on a Bryant Schools Facebook page. According to on-line school board records, Hare submitted her resignation effective April 1, 2023.     Hare is married and is a resident of Conway, AR. KATV featured the Hare family in another story on October 31, 2022. Stay tuned for updates. KTHV featured Hare's daughter in several newscasts . ### ***UPDATE 04/06/23*** Bryant PD provided us with their initial report dated March 31, 2023. ***UPDATE 04/07/23*** Sources report that the Bryant High School football player involved in an "entanglement"

ASP Trooper Jacob Haynie caught on his own mobile video recordings using the N-word

On November 21, 2023, after one of those questionable PIT maneuvers (the ASP now calls  Precision Immobilization Technique , or PIT maneuvers, Tactical Vehicle Intervention or TVI) ASP rookie trooper and former Hope Arkansas cop Jacob Haynie was caught on his and other ASP mobile video recordings using profanity and the N-word.   ASP policy prohibits the behavior and words Trooper Haynie uttered. That same policy also prohibits actions and behaviors that reflect unfavorably on the ASP. Haynie's wife works at the Hempstead County Assessors office. Wonder if she uses that language at work too?  ### The full videos can be viewed on many of the YouTube Channels that feature ASP videos.  A follower of one channel identifies Haynie as the one uttering the words. Apparently that individual knows Haynie and might have worked with him at Hope PD. ASP claims no one said the words "climb" or "N***a" and the trooper using the fowl language was actually Tyler Gentry. Ri

Three LRPD cops "relieved of duty" over incident at Club Trois

Sources at LRPD have confirmed a tip we received that three LRPD cops, Brad Stewart, Lee Pitts and Justin Sims have been "relieved of duty" in connection with an incident at Club Trois. The story we were told is that Stewart was working off-duty at Club Trois and dealt with an inebriated female club patron by soaking her with pepper spray.  LRPD General Order  ("G.O.") 303 requires that a cop that uses physical force, non-lethal control and compliance devices, on or off-duty, follow certain procedures. Use of pepper spray is a Level 4 event. Here are the specific procedures. LRPD sources tell us that they are trained to call MEMS after they use pepper spray or a taser on an individual. They are to file an incident report and they file an officer's report or letter form (5600-2) with their immediate supervisor for each use of force incident. Here's an example of an officer letter form.   Not a single procedure was followed in this incident. And to make matter
