Arkansas applied for and received a federal grant known as the Prescription Drug Overdose Grant(PDO). This grant will enable the development of a standardized training program for Naloxone by the Criminal Justice Institute as well as the distribution of Naloxone to all first responders in designated counties that accept the guidelines that are required for its implementation. Designated Counties were selected based on number of factors that tabulated mortality rates, arrests, emergency room submissions for the opioid type offenses and incidents. Those counties with the highest rates were selected for this grant. These counties are: Crawford, Franklin, Sebastian, Scott, and Sharp. Naloxone training will begin for the identified communities in October to all eligible first responders in those designated counties. Please join us on March 27th as we start the Scott County Opioid Summit, with a showing of Chasing the Dragon at the Scott Theater, followed by a lunch on the 28th at the Nazarene Church, where several speakers will speak regarding the affects of opioid addiction and it's impact on our community.

Our Chief will be retiring at the end of this month. He has spent 26 years with the Waldron Police Department, starting as a Patrolman in 1992. Upon his retirement Captain Jeremy Hunt will be elevated to the position of Chief of Police. Join us on March 14th at Waldron City Hall, from 2:00 - 3:00 to congratulate Chief Millard on his retirement and meet Captain Hunt.

This morning officers were dispatched to a call regarding an unresponsive child. Officer's arrived on-scene, followed by EMS. The child was transported to Mercy Hospital of Scott County, where the child was pronounced dead. The child has been sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab, as this is standard procedure. Although this is an ongoing investigation, at this time no foul play is suspected. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.

Recently, several area residents have reported that they have received phone calls or emails which we feel are SCAMS. Please remember: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!" NEVER give your Social Security number or personal financial information to any caller. Read the following consumer alert from the Arkansas Attorney General's Office. If you have any questions, feel free to call our office. CONSUMER ALERT: Sweepstakes Scams Stealing Arkansans Cash May 17, 2017 LITTLE ROCK – Scam artists are making unsolicited phone calls and sending unsolicited emails to convince Arkansans they have won a sweepstakes or lottery. But there is a catch – “winners” must first wire a processing fee or fill out a form to provide banking information to the con artist so the money can be deposited. This is a scam. “Arkansans work hard for their money, and these criminals who do what they can to steal from us are appalling,” said Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge. “My office has had recent calls from Arkansans reporting they were told they had won $2 million – if only they would send $900. Consumers need to be cautious when receiving unsolicited phone calls or emails. Legitimate organizations will never require a processing fee or private banking information in exchange for a prize.” Attorney General Rutledge released the following tips to help consumers spot one of these scams: Consumers should not try to collect winnings from a sweepstakes they do not remember entering. Never give out personal financial information. Do not pay any money up front in an attempt to claim a prize. Always remember, if it looks or seems too good to be true, it mostly likely is. Scammers often use the name of legitimate businesses, like Publishers Clearinghouse, or a similar name to trick consumers into turning over their information. No matter how the consumer is notified, there is a good chance the consumer will lose money instead of winning it. When money is wired to a foreign country, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to get it returned. Consumers should ignore all unsolicited sweepstakes prices and immediately contact the Attorney General’s office to report the call or email. For more information and tips to avoid scams and other consumer-related issues, contact the Arkansas Attorney General’s office at (800) 482-8982 or consumer@arkansasag.gov or visit ArkansasAG.gov or facebook.com/AGLeslieRutledge.

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mom's out there! We hope you have a blessed day.

We'd like to congratulate the Waldron High School Class of 2017. This is the day you've worked for the past 13 years. Good luck to each of you in your future endeavors.

Praying for our brothers and sisters at the Yell County Sheriffs Office, Lt. Kevin Mainhart's family and the families of the other two victims. There is relentless evil in the world, that seems to get worse everyday, but there are also relentless defenders willing to sacrifice their life for the sake of others.

We are saddened by the passing of Bill Luttrell, who served as Chief of Police here for several years. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
