Arkansas State University Police News

Congratulations Sgt. Brian Shelton!

Today I was the special speaker for three of the CNA classes at Jonesboro High School. These guys and gals are seniors and are getting ready to head out for college. They wanted to know about college life and how to stay safe. Some of them have already applied to be part of the Red Wolf family. Hopefully the ones that was sitting on the fence has climbed to ASU side. These folks are amazing.

April 17 I had a chance to meet this amazing group of future Red Wolves. We talked about bullying, race, and anything about police officers. They loved sitting in my unit. They taught me some of their dance moves, I was instructed to practice a lot. This awesome group is called AstAte CARE. You guys rock.

Congratulations to Patrolman John Carter! Patrolman Carter graduated today after completing 13 weeks of intense training at the Black River Technical Colleges Police Academy. We are excited to have him back on campus serving our community!

It is National Telecommunicators week. We would like to recognize the hard work and dedication our communications officers exhibit daily to keep our campus and all those in the community safe! They are the first to respond to every situation, the calm voice during chaos and the unsung hero behind the scenes. Thank you for all you do!

A great two days of advanced training in firearms!

A-State Closing Tuesday, Jan. 16 Today at 12:39 AM JONESBORO – Arkansas State University is closed today, Tuesday, Jan. 16, due to winter precipitation. All winter response staff members are requested to report to their duty stations. Overnight, snow fall made conditions for faculty and staff hazardous. "Our administrative team determined the snowfall was going to be heavier than forecast and while today was scheduled to be the first day of class for the spring 2018 semester, I've decided it is best that we cancel classes for today," Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said. All classes at the Jonesboro and Paragould locations are cancelled. Online classes continue. While offices and classes are closed, university residential life areas continue to operate to support the on-campus student population. For students living on-campus, Acansa Dining Hall will operate under "brunch hours" with service from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and then 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. For updates on A-State events, please check the university’s official website AState.edu or social media feeds, Facebook.com/ArkansasState or @ArkansasState on Twitter.
