I would like to get this information out to our citizens and law enforcement community. Please share this with as many folks as you can, we need to develop as many good community/police relationships as we can. Thank you!

Just a reminder to the Citizens of Cotter. For issues that require Police attention please contact Dispatch Non Emergency number 870-425-2361. If it is an emergency please dial 911. City Hall is only open 8-4 M-F. We want to provide the best service we can, but we must get the information in order to respond.

I am so pleased with the support and community spirit that I witnessed last night. As I traveled around town between parties I felt honored to be part of this awesome community. It was so refreshing for myself and my Officers to respond to things that were positive and fun. I want to thank each person who attended my planning meetings, who opened their homes and yards, who passed on the information about the event, who volunteered, and who helped with thoughts and prayers, you all supported and brought this together. After speaking to everyone who hosted we had approximately 200 people at various places throughout the city. For a city with around 1000 citizens, we had 20% of them engaged and having fun and fellowship. Once again Thank You Cotter and I've already had input for how we can grow this event next year!!!!!

Here are some pics from National Night Out!

For those of you who make it out to parties tonight please take pictures and post them here or email them to the PD at We are doing a type of scrap book and we would love to see the event through the community's eyes!!!!

I am so pleased with the response of our City and the people who are bringing this event together. Just driving through town yesterday and talking with people and watching this come together is overwhelming. I spoke with a gentleman yesterday that told me he had only spoken to one of his neighbors in passing a few times over numerous years. Though this event he advised that it opened the door and allowed them to talk and be inviting toward each other.To me if nothing else comes out of this event, that is worth it. I'm proud to be part of this City and look forward to all that it brings!. Please make plans to get out tonight and meet your neighbors! 6-9 pm there are events at West Ridge Church, First Baptist Church, The Youth Center, Combs at Harding, South Ave at 3rd, and Melba at Capital. I have heard that there will be cake walks, live music, sno cones, pot luck, and Bar B Que, and believe me I will be sampling all of it!!!! Again Thank You Cotter and all of it's support!

It's almost here!!! I would like to thank the many people involved in making the first annual National Night Out a sucess in Cotter. I know the event is tomorrow night, 6pm-9pm, but it is already a tremendous sucess. The amount of people that have been reached to participate is overwhelming. Driving through town yesterday I saw the event on the West Ridge and Wesley Methodist Church signs and it instantly became a reality! Hearing about the individual parties and what people were bringing and doing is inspiring to say the least. It takes effort for people to get together these days, everyone is busy and we are all chasing time, but I would like to say that I am proud to be a part of this community and am looking forward to all the food, fun, and fellowship that tomorrow night brings. Great Job Cotter!!!

I just shared the article from the Baxter Bulletin that highlights our NNO event. I would like to thank the folks at the Baxter Bulletin for all of their help with this event. It's not too late to sign up and host a party, the only requirement is that you get together and have a good time.

We have three confirmed areas in the city that will host a block party, West Ridge Church, Citizens on Melba, and First Baptist Church. I would like to thank each of the community members who have stepped up and are willing to get out and meet their neighbors This event is a community/police building event, This department looks forward to getting out and stopping in on each party and getting to know the people and allow them to put a face with 911. Stay tuned for more information to come........

The Cotter Police Department would like to thank everyone for coming out to the First Annual Memorial Day celebration yesterday. We would also like to thank all the people who donated their time and efforts to make it a tremendous success! Thank you Veterans and all your sacrifices.

The Cotter Police Department is in the initial planning stage to bring National Night Out to the City of Cotter. We will be posting more as the plans become more certain, but we want the Community to be aware of this program. Our goal is to have neighborhoods come together and have block parties, to get to know each other along with meeting First Responders who Protect and Serve our beautiful City. This year National Night Out will be held Tuesday, August 1, 2017, mark your calendars to come out and have a wonderful time.

The Cotter Police Department is once again participating in the Click it or Ticket Program his year.

What a success! We got it all done and made some families happy! Thank you to all that made this happen!

Sergeant Martin is feeling a lot like Christmas!

Round one to the Cotter School! The remaining 15 kid's presents will be delivered to their homes on Christmas Eve along with a Christmas dinner! Big fun!

Cotter Police Department is working on a project to make Christmas a little better this year for some children at the school. We are catching some Angel Tree kids that didn't get their stuff turned in before the deadline. We are also picking up some kids that didn't make the deadline for Shop With A Cop. I just can't see turning these kids away, so I've teamed up with the Cotter Fire Department Auxiliary to take donations to buy clothes and a special gift for these kids that may not have the best Christmas. The Fire Chief and myself will deliver some of these gifts in person on Christmas Eve and some will be delivered to the kids before school is out. If you would like to make a donation, stop by city hall or mail it to: Cotter Police Department P.O. Box 9 Cotter, AR 72626 Make checks payable to Cotter Fire Department Auxiliary Put Christmas Donation in the memo If you want me to stop by and get it, just message me on here. Thanks, Chief Tilton
