LRPD wants you to be a Confidential Informant


The Little Rock Police Department is asking citizens and businesses to "partner" with them to help fight crime in the safe city of Little Rock.

They created a website for you to sign up and connect your doorbell and home or business security cameras to their "Real Time Crime Center".

 Camera integration is an expensive process.


And all records regarding the location and providers of the cameras are not being released to the public because the Scott Administration states the individuals and businesses that participate are considered to be confidential informants

Confidential informants are also know on the street as snitches

We know this because we made a Freedom of Information request for records associated with

And this was the reply we received from the city and LRPD.

What is Arkansas Act 1012?

Take a look.

Is the city of Little Rock paying for the pricey devices to connect these camera to their secret police web based system?


Good luck finding that out.

The Little Rock Board of Directors has provided millions of dollars to LRPD, without any questions, over the last four years to try make the city the safest in the state and in the United States.

That money has been wasted. The city of Little Rock is one of the most violent cities in United States.

The confidential cameras of the snitches can be accessed and viewed by LRPD cops through programs and applications that can be installed on the computers in their vehicles and on their cellphones.

LRPD cops can access license plate readers.

LRPD cops can also access the LRPD spy cameras located throughout the csafe city of Little Rock.



Back in 2021, we posted the locations of the 52 spy camera LRPD had deployed at that time (click here to view).


LRPD cops can also access the sketchy and expensive ShotSpotter gunfire detection sensors that have been placed in what LRPD described in a federal grant application as the "most dangerous area of the city" (a 2 sq. area centered around the 12th St. LRPD substation).

LRPD can uses this equipment to spy on citizens.

Even when you are conducting lawful actions like voting. 



The process has not been without a few hiccups. 


If this wasn't enough, LRPD also integrates your social media accounts into their system to keep up and track you.


As of the time this is being posted, the safe city of Little Rock has had 42 homicide take place.

All of this LRPD expensive technology didn't prevent a single one.

It does however document them.

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

Pulaski County Department headed by State Senator Fred Love is in trouble.

By Russ Racop On July 31st we broke the story that there was an internal investigation afoot at the Pulaski County office of Community Services.   A recipient of Section 8 HVC vouchers contacted us on that same day for assistance and we began our investigation.   Her landlord contacted her and told her she had three days to get out of her apartment because she had fraudulently obtained assistance.    The landlord had been contacted by Love's staff before she had. She didn't understand what was going on because she just moved into the apartment and had been vetted and approved for assistance by Love's department. It's not the first time someone has reached out to us about Fred Love and that county department.  Love also serves in the state legislature as a Senator. We have received allegations and some records about sexual and workplace harassment, malfeasance and misuse of county resources involving Love. We immediately called the number listed on that rent payment noti
