Blytheville Police Officers are at the Special Olympic summer games this weekend. Your donations and support make this event possible.

Blytheville Police Department Officer Krupin, Sgt. St. Laurent and Capt. Ward were recently recognized during the Arkansas Narcotic Officers annual banquet for their life saving efforts earlier this year. The officers had received training from the Stop the Bleeding Foundation which also provided the medical equipment they used.

The Blytheville Police Department phone number has been used in an automated call system. Callers may receive a call from our number stating a family member has been hurt or in jail and prompting them to send money. This is an attempted scam and you may disregard the call. Our phone service provider is looking into the matter.
