Mystery surrounding the departure of LRPD acting chief Crystal Young-Haskins


Acting LRPD chief Crystal Young-Haskins abruptly resigns

Turmoil surrounds the Scott Administration and his choices for leadership at the Little Rock Police Department.

Two assistant chief's , Alice Fulk and Hayward Finks, left the department after filing lawsuits against the then chief Keith Humphrey.

Fulk left to become chief of the Arkansas State Capitol Police and Finks left to become head of security for the North Little Rock School District.

The belligerent and problematic Humphrey abruptly "retired" in May in the midst of an internal and external investigations into a shooting incident on New Years Eve. By the way, his quitting in the midst of an internal investigation according to Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Training ("CLEST") rules requires his decertification as a law enforcement officer.


CLEST rules require LRPD to file a form within 10 days when any certified law enforcement office.

According to CLEST the form filed with then says Humphrey left the department "in good standing". LRPD should have disclosed that Humphrey left employment during an on-going investigation.

Sources tell us that that form was most likely submitted to CLEST by Humphrey supporter Major Ty Tyrrell who oversees the training division and maintains personnel records for LRPD.

Tyrrell refused to sign a letter with other LRPD command staff members in September 2020 that expressed concerns about Humphrey's leadership of the department.

Tyrrell refused to sign a letter with other LRPD command staff members in September 2020 that expressed concerns about Humphrey's leadership of the department.

Prior to Young-Haskins being promoted to assistant chief in Setpember 2020, LR Mayor Frank Scott, Jr. instituted a policy that all assistant chief would have to reside in the city.


Almost a year after her promotion, Young-Haskins had not relocated from her home in Jacksonville, AR to Little Rock as dictated by the Mayor.


Young-Haskins had obtain a mortgage on her Jacksonville, AR home in March 1, 2021 that required her to reside in that house for a one year period.




Young-Haskins also claimed a homestead exemption on her Jacksonville residence.


Young-Haskins did purchase a home in Little Rock in right after she signed a mortgage and agreed to live in her Jacksonville, AR residence for a one year period.


In February 2022 a mortgage she obtained for the Little Rock property was modified.

Haskins-Young obtained another mortgage for her Little Rock property in April 2022, It was for $237,500. 

The property in Little Rock was is not habitable when Young-Haskins purchased it.

Some improvement has been made since then, but its still not habitable.


An earlier FOI request to the city for any records about the Little Rock property and the planning department/commission resulted in a response of no records found.

We sent another request yesterday.

It appears that both Humphrey and Young-Haskins provided false information to the city about why she had not followed the mayor's directive and taken up residency in the city.

Little information about Young-Haskins departure has been released. No suprising from the Scott Administration.

Sources at LRPD tell us the internal pool for candidates for a new assistant chief is extremely limited. Only a couple of white males have the requisite requirements told be promoted. No females currently employed meet the requirements.  

Stay tuned for updates.
