MEMS workers steal time by fishing on the clock



A follower sent us a message and photos about seeing two Metropolitan Emergency Medical Service ("MEMS") workers stealing time by fishing on the clock on Shackleford Road.

It didn't take long for folks identify the pair and send messages about seeing them at other locations in west Little Rock.

One of the time bandits was identified as MEMS Captain Courtney Hagar.

We featured Hagar in a video last year when she responded to accident in which a LRPD cop ran over a man at 12th and Peyton. Hagar made unprofessional remarks to the injured man. Here's a clip from that video:

Another follower sent us a link to a page that Hager and her on-the-job fishing co-worker buddy Nick Crews document their and other MEMS employees stealing time fishing activities.

A social media page that appears to violate MEMS social media policy and other MEMS policies.

MEMS social media policy prohibits this activity. 

We wonder if their on-duty fishing and social media posting about their exploits impacts their ability to quickly respond to an emergency?

We cover a lot of incidents and have noticed that it does take a long time for MEMS to respond. 

Some long response times are due to MEMS workers being afraid to go to certain areas or places unless a LRPD cop in there before they show up. 

The time stealing pair also violated MEMS policy when they posted a photograph from an incident to which they responded. 

It doesn't matter if they had permission from the individual as they claim, MEMS policy strictly forbids posts like that.


Apparently not following the rules is something Hagar does on and off work.

A medical provider sued Hagar for an unpaid bill and won a default judgment against her.

We have filed a compliant with MEMS and have sent a FOI request for additional records.

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
