Poinsett County Sheriff's Office News

I came across this photo on Facebook and immediately thought about our county. We have the best Fire Departments. They are always willing to give us a helping hand when needed and we do the same. Thank you for all you do. Sheriff Kevin Molder





When I took office on January 1, 2017, one of my commitments to the citizens of Poinsett County was fighting drugs. In 2018, I started a task force to specifically target drug dealers. These are the people who sell to our kids and addicts. They are the ones who trade property that has been stolen from our hard working citizens. Sharing information on what we are doing is one way I have informed the community. However, this can have an adverse effect on how people view our county and may make people think it is no longer safe. This is a problem that not only exists here, but throughout the U.S. What you are seeing now is an aggressive no tolerance approach for drug dealers that is producing results. I do believe this approach will drive the crime rate down in Poinsett County since most crimes are directly related to drug abuse. Thus, making Poinsett County a safer place to live. We continue to ask for your support in this difficult task. We also ask that you send us tips anytime you see something that is strange or unusual. You can go to www.poinsettcountysheriff.org and submit crime tips anonymously. We can do great things together. Sincerely, Sheriff Kevin Molder


I would like all of our Detention Officers to know how much we appreciate them. They have a tough job and make a difference everyday. We could not be successful without their hard work and dedication. Thank you! Sheriff Kevin Molder



I had a good time meeting with Governor Asa Hutchison and several other Sheriff’s last week in Little Rock. I am very appreciative of his concerns for law enforcement issues in our county and counties throughout the state. Sheriff Kevin Molder

The Poinsett County Sheriff’s Office is honoring and remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We would also like to thank all those who have served our country in the past and those who are currently serving.

National Prevention Week was observed last week. This video was aired on Kait and sponsored by the Poinsett County Health Coalition. If you know someone who is abusing prescription pills, help is out there. Our office will gladly assist you in how to obtain that help. I have included a link to the Arkansas Attorney General's website for additional resources. https://arkansasag.gov/programs/prescription-abuse/ Sheriff Kevin Molder

Central Community Church recognized First Responders in their morning service today. Brother Allen Elkins delivered a great message and the meal after the service was amazing. I would like to thank Brother Elkins and all the members and guests of Central Community Church who took the time to recognize and pray for us. Sheriff Kevin Molder



I would like thank the Poinsett County Sheriff’s Office Wives Club, deputies, and all those who helped in the dunking booth today. The PCSO Wives Club realized our desperate need for equipment. They have met that need by doing fund raisers since I took office. We are grateful to them and everyone who donated to the cause. Thank you! Sheriff Kevin Molder


Congratulations to K9 Deputy Janko and Deputy Jason Thomas on their first positive track as a team. Earlier in the week, deputies had a person jump out a window in the back of a house and took off running. A perimeter was set up and the K9 team successful tracked the suspect in to a patch of woods. The suspect was taken in to custody without incident. We are proud that they are a part of our department. Thank you! Sheriff Kevin Molder
