For decades we have acquired files from the Little Rock Police Department regarding internal investigations and criminal files conducted on their employees.

We have an on-going series about where all the LRPD take-home vehicle go, mostly outside of the city.

Now we will expose the drunks, drug addicts, mentally ill misfits that comprise the mostly mercenary LRPD ranks.

Our first episode in this new series reads like a made for TV movie.

This cop had blackouts from mixing psychotropic drugs/booze, and suffers with  with a mysterious obsessive compulsive disorder. Top that off with insurance fraud and you have a typical LRPD cop.

A complaint back in 2014 by Shawntell Looney, a female that apparently had an itch for bad boy cops, resulted in this miscreant getting forever branded as a liar and a risk to the shaky reputation and credibility of LRPD.

Shawntell Looney

Here is the entire IAD file. It's a big file but worth taking a look at. It has some salacious details (hint: sex tape).

The investigation revealed that Looney had been in a relationship with another LRPD cop, Henry Moore.

The investigation details that one occasion when Looney stayed over at Boyce's residence, he took her phone with him when he went to take a morning crap. Boyce found that Looney had sex with Moore (Boyce thought that they were going steady) and it set Boyce off.

Boyce only received a 15 day suspension.

Branded as a liar, he should have been fired. 

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1963 that prosecutors must tell anyone accused of a crime about all evidence that might help their defense at trial. That includes sharing details about police officers who have committed crimes, lied on the job or whose honesty has been called into doubt.

We exposed all the liars working for LRPD. You can view the list by clicking here.

Here is a list of LRPD officer suspensions. We have marked the cops that have issues with credibility, honesty, and truthfulness.


USA Today published a story last year about lying cops that featured several LRPD Liars List cops.  Click here to read it.

The Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney's Office provided no records to our request for a list of LRPD Officers that had issues with truthfulness and credibility, even though a story Fox16 did back in 2016 references such a list.

Documented liars still employed at LRPD must be fired and lose their law enforcement credentials.

Disgraced ex-LRPD cop and felon lied on her employment application to get job with Arkansas State Police

In 2009, Sheva Howard was a Little Rock cop. She began working at LRPD in 2001 as a Crime Scene Specialist and in 2003 she became a police officer. Howard also worked off-duty, in her LRPD uniform, at Dillard's until she was caught in an act of thievery.  Howard purchased one purse, but it was in a bag so heavy she had to drag it on the ground. That bag was later found to have multiple purses packed into another purse. That incident also ended her career as a cop and gained her a felony conviction.   The LRPD Internal Investigation file reads like a script from an episode of Law & Order.   Howard was found to be untruthful during the internal investigation.   Here's what the local newspaper published about her criminal trial. Howard's supervisor at Dillard's was Willie Robinson. It just so happened that Robinson was and is also an Arkansas State Trooper.   Howard tried to have her conviction overturned but the Arkansas Court of Appeals upheld her conviction.   After

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
