***UPDATE*** Ladies and gentlemen, the male in the photos from Casey's that was posted yesterday has been identified. Thank you for all of the tips on the identity of the individual.

Good morning, Everyone meet West High School Resource Officer Vj Wilson. Officer Wilson has been a certified officer for just shy of 5 years. He started his career at the Bella Vista Police Department before taking a small stint as a firefighter. He soon realized he missed law enforcement. Officer Wilson has been with the Centerton Police Department just over a year now. He is a swat officer with the Centerton PD swat team, a certified drug recognition expert, and a certified bicycle officer. This will be his first full year as a school resource officer and he is excited for the opportunity. Due to training earlier this week, today is his first day at school. Make sure you give him a big West Wolverine welcome.

We would like to thank the citizens in our community that continued to support us this week as our name was slandered across social media. Hateful comments and messages were sent to us well before we had a chance to defend ourselves. We didnโ€™t post the video on our page due to the strong language displayed. We try to be a page that is suitable for all ages. The Centerton, AR - Fraternal Order of Police posted the full version of the videos. Today a nice woman paid for our officerโ€™s lunch and left this note behind. Maโ€™am we donโ€™t know who you are but we definitely appreciate the gesture and the continued support. Thank you for sticking by us and waiting for both sides of the story before passing judgement.

As the new school year approaches, we need to be aware of school zone speed limits, use of cell phones in school zones, pedestrians, and stopped school buses. Centerton Police Officers will be out in force stopping and ticketing individuals who fail to stop for stopped school buses with their red lights flashing, speeding in the (25mph) school zone, and being on their phones while in a school zone. Also be mindful of children walking to school, especially on Gamble Road between Bliss Street and Seba Road, due to there not being any sidewalks. There is also a crosswalk in front of West High School that everyone needs to be mindful of. This year West will have just shy of 2,000 students. That's a lot of vehicular and foot traffic. Please be careful and let's have a great start to a great new year of school.

Ladies and gentlemen, a firearm was recovered today in the roadway at N Vaughn Road and W Centerton Blvd. It was still in the case and is still in great condition. If this firearm belongs to you, please come by the police department and retrieve your item. You will have to provide a description, including serial number and a background check done to confirm you are legally able to possess a firearm in the State of Arkansas. If you have any questions please contact our Criminal Investigations Division at 479-795-4431 Ext. 4

***UPDATE*** Update to the theft suspect video from yesterday. Both suspects have been identified, located, and charged. The power of Facebook prevails again. Thank you everyone for the shares.

Congratulations to Officer Nick Dentis and Officer Tippin Wilson on completing the Northwest Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy. We are glad you graduated, now get your butts on the streets... the citizens need you.

Prayers to the Joplin Police Department tonight. They lost one of their own to a tragic motorcycle accident. The officer was off duty at the time and on a motorcycle ride with his wife. They both passed away. They would have been celebrating their 23rd wedding anniversary this weekend.

Good Morning, We wanted to put out a warning to our residents regarding phone scams. We have been receiving reports of scams via threatening phone calls. There is not a government entity that will call you and request money or bank information over the phone. Feel free to contact the Police Department for verification if you receive one of these calls.

Everybody meet Cooper. Cooper went door to door in his neighborhood and raised the rest of the money needed to purchase Zorro' s new vest. Thank you Cooper for being the good hearted young man that you are. It means more to us than you will ever know. #cooperforthewin #bulletproofpuppy #newvest #ellengetthiskidonyourshow Ellen DeGeneres
