Today, we along with Mayor Hudson, joined other law enforcement, Fire Departments, and EMS from across the State of Arkansas on the steps of the Capitol at a press conference to announce an historic fight against prescription drug abuse. The U.S. is responsible for 84% of the world's opioid consumption even though we represent only 3% of the world's population. In 2016, Arkansas ranked #2 in our nation for the highest number of opioid prescriptions. This has created a deadly epidemic, one for which law enforcement has witnessed first hand.

**Information Release Concerning School Bomb Threat** On Wednesday, March 7, the Prairie Grove School District released information concerning the discovery of a bomb threat at the High School which specifically mentioned today (Friday). Our initial investigation has concluded that the perpetrator was likely a High School student who wrote the message. The safety of our children is the highest priority. Therefore, we took every precaution in searching the school and placing it on lockdown over the past 24 hours. We used local law enforcement and a bomb dog from the University of Arkansas to search the school. We also strictly limited access in and out of the High School and screened every item and person prior to entering. It is our hope that this action will show we take zero tolerance regarding threats against our schools. We also hope that it will be a deterrent to any future threat. We encourage parents to speak with their children about the seriousness of these types of threats/statements/pranks and the potential consequences of their actions.

As of 5:45pm all roads in the city limits of Prairie Grove appear to be clear. Roads are just wet at this time so use caution. We will continue to update if conditions change. Sergeant Standifer

**Information release** Due to our office receiving a large amount of questions of concern from local residents and parents, we felt it was best to give a public statement: Yesterday, in one of the high school classrooms, a teacher had written out the week’s agenda on a dry erase board. The teacher had left the “Thursday” agenda blank. Shortly after, a young high school student secretly approached the board and wrote “Everyone will die”. This was written in the Thursday agenda space. As a result of this statement, the school and police department launched an investigation. The student was subsequently given a criminal charge and was disciplined appropriately. It is our belief, after a full investigation, that the incident was merely a prank/joke done in poor judgment by that young student. He is now fully aware of the seriousness of his actions. We also understand the heightened emotions and sense of urgency with these types of incidents, especially after the recent event in Florida. Due to this incident, rumors began to spread and false information has been shared amongst students and parents through facebook and other outlets. Some of the rumors have included: additional threats, writings in bathrooms, etc. THESE ARE RUMORS AND HAVE NOT OCCURRED. There has only been one incident (as mentioned above). There have been no other threats or incidents at any of our schools. Shout out to our amazing School Staff and School Resource Officer who have been working overtime to handle this situation. Please know that the school and this police department are working hard to address recent concerns of school safety. We hold the safety of our children as the highest priority. -Captain Jeff O’Brien
