PLEASE READ AND SHARE We are currently working cases where someone had placed a "skimmer" on two separate gas pumps at the Exxon Station. Suspect is using this information and withdrawing money from peoples account. Please check your banking information to see if you have any suspicious activity. If you find that you have been a victim of this scam, contact Det. John Logan at the police department. We have informed all of the stations in town to be watching for this and have contacted the Secret Service to help track down the suspect. I left a picture of the skimmer in the comment section, this type is undetectable and works internally. Thanks, Brandon

On behalf of the Police Department, we want to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. Be safe out there, this is one of the busiest travel times of the year. Brandon

This is body cam footage of the school traffic this morning at Dallas Ave. and Morrow Street. It gives you an idea of what the officers see when directing traffic.

ATTENTION!!! PLEASE WATCH AND SHARE!!! On the afternoon of August 27th, 2 men in the white, 4 door pick up seen in the video, stole several appliances from behind a local business. In the video you can see as the two men load a couple of the appliances. If you recognize either of the men or the truck please call the Mena Police Department at 479-394-6225. Ask for Detective Gray.

Thank you to everyone for a smooth first day of school. Traffic is always heavy the first couple of days and the rain doesn't make it any easier, we appreciate your patience! Brandon

ALERT!!!! PLEASE SHARE!!! We have received some reports of a 501 area code phone number calling people locally and soliciting donations. The caller is using Chief Martin's name to try to sound official and imply an endorsement. The Mena Police Department has NOT authorized anyone to use our name, or Chief Martin's name to solicit donations for ANY cause or reason. If you receive a call like this, they DO NOT have permission to use our department's name, Chief Martin's name, or to claim any affiliation with the Mena Police Department. Please disregard these phone calls! Again, PLEASE SHARE this so we can get the word out.

Mena PD has begun training a new crop of Reserve Officers. Starting tonight and running thru the end of May these candidates will be in class 3 nights a week for 4 hours each night and for 8 hours on Saturdays. Tonight Chief Martin is teaching Law Enforcement Standards, Criminal Justice Systems, and Ethics. Over the next six weeks the candidates will be trained in subjects ranging from firearms to first aid, and every aspect of police work. These future reserve officers are sponsored by the Mena Police Department, the Grannis Police Department, and the Montgomery County Sheriffs Office.

While conducting a search of a residence yesterday we located an archery bow in a case. This is possibly stolen property but no report has been made. Please check and see if you are missing any archery equipment, call the police department and describe the property. We will need to know the brand, model and serial number if possible or any identifying marks. Thanks, Brandon

We will be taking applications for Reserve Officers until March 24th. If you are interested, come by the office and talk to one of the guys on duty to get started. We will be holding a reserve class in April for those who have not had the training. This is a good opportunity to get involved in the community and help make a difference.
