We would like to introduce our two new School Resource Officers to everyone. Ptl. Steven Tolliver and Cpl. Josh Howard. Both of these young men are dedicated to the safety of our school children and are eager to get this School year off to a great start.

We want to congratulate Chief Sonny Stover for receiving the National School Safety Award from the National School Safety Advocacy Council. Chief Stover always looks for ways to recognize and highlight the actions of our officers and the department as a whole for the good things they do for our community, and he never seeks recognition for himself which in my mind is what makes a great leader. We are glad to see Chief Stover being recognized for his dedication to our community it is well deserved. Way to go Chief

Truly honored to be named Chief of the Year by the Arkansas Safe Schools Association.

Morrilton Police Department Public Safety Announcement Some neighborhoods are experiencing an elevated number of thefts from vehicles. During these thefts, the perpetrator(s) typically target unlocked vehicles where valuables are visible from the outside and/or easily located inside the vehicle. These individuals generally rely on their ability to access a large number of vehicles while circulating through the neighborhood and therefore rarely force entry for fear of making noise and risking detection. These incidents typically occur during the overnight hours and are not reported until the next morning when the owner recognizes property missing or out of place. The items most commonly taken from vehicles are: • Global Positioning Systems (Garmin, Magellan, Tom-tom) • Radar Detectors •Wallets / Purses/ Cash • Prescription Medications • Firearms In an effort to combat this problem, we encourage residents to employ some basic preventative measures: • Lock your vehicles • Remove valuables from view • Do not leave any prescription medications or firearms in your vehicle • Park vehicles in the garage or driveway • Leave exterior lights on • Report any suspicious behavior to police during the overnight hours (911 or 501-354-0131) • Report any incident where you believe someone has entered your vehicle without permission (i.e. glove box left open or items strewn about vehicle)

I would like to congratulate Ptl. Cheyenne Trafford on graduating from the Central Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy Class 2017-B held a Camp Robinson. We are proud to have her at the Morrilton Police Department as part of our team and family.
