Decatur Police Department News

Thank you to Brittany Berry and Sara Rodriguez for the basket of goodies. It is much appreciated.

Thank you to Kim P. and Cheryl A. for the wonderful gift basket that was dropped off at our Police Department yesterday! The Officers greatly appreciated it!!

It has come to my attention that a lot of you here in Decatur don't know that we are now being dispatched by Benton County Central Communications. Now when you dial 479-752-3911 you will speak with a dispatcher and they will dispatch us to the call. This is the same dispatch office you reach when you dial 911. I know this isn't as convenient as when we answered the phone directly but there are a few very important reasons why we started doing this. Primarily it was an issue of safety to our officers. If they are on a call or traffic stop they needed to focus on the task at hand, and not a ringing phone. It also allows us to better track information, addresses, and complaints. All complaints are logged, tracked, and recorded. this can help us get information in real time when responding to a call, as well as, provide necessary information at a later date that could aid in investigations. This change was made to better aid us in serving you. Thank you for bearing with us through this change.

We were honored to be part of the Pink Heals organization Sunday as they went to vitis Remington. Remington is battling cancer but through faith, family and friends has kept fighting.
