Preliminary data reveals that at least since 2008, Black LRPD cops are receiving almost TWICE the suspension time than white LRPD cops are receiving for similar violations. 

There are currently 540 LRPD officers*.


✦ 180 Little Rock Police officers are black, serving a total of 4,036 hrs of suspension since 2008.

✦ 22.42 hrs of suspension per black officer since 2008.  

✦ Almost 13.5 hrs of suspension per every 100 black officers since 2008. 

✦ Out of 540 total cops, Black cops accounted for 13.8 hours of suspension per 100 cops since 2008. Black cops account for nearly half the total of white cops employed by the city of Little Rock.


✦ 337 Little Rock Police officers are white, serving a total of 4551.67 hrs. of suspension since 2008. 

✦ 13.5 hrs of suspension per white officer since 2008.  

✦ Almost 7.5 hrs of suspension per every 100 white officers since 2008.

✦ Out of 540 total cops, white cops accounted for 11.86 hours of suspension per 100 cops since 2008. White cops account for nearly double the total of Black cops employed by the city of Little Rock.

This is an ongoing investigation, check back for updates... 


* Almost 70% of all LRPD cops lives outside of the city limits of Little Rock.

Around 80% of all white LRPD cops refuse to live in the city of Little Rock. According to the Little Rock Fraternal Order of Police because of crime and schools.

This makes LRPD a mercenary police department.


Here is a document from LRPD that backs up our claims about disparity in suspensions for similar infractions of policy/procedure.

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.

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
