Yesterday, while patrolling the Razorback Greenway, Officers ran in to a group of kids from the SOAR program at Camp War Eagle. These kids were giving up time out of their Spring Break to clean up trash along the creek on Park St and our officers decided to help out. As the weather warms up you will start seeing officers on the trails and in the parks. If you see us, come say hi, shake a hand or give a high five!

There is a viral post spreading across social media of a screen shot by a person identified as "Ray Andres" indicating that there is going to be a shooting at "SHS" tomorrow. Upon investigation this is a nation wide post that originated out of the State of Ohio, and has spread fear in many schools across the country using the acronym "SHS". There is NO CREDIBLE THREAT to Springdale High School. The Springdale Police Department as well as Springdale Public Schools will do everything to ensure your children are safe. Please help us spread the TRUTH.

We always love spending time in the schools teaching and hanging out with the students.

Today was the day that a few braved the cold weather and water to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Arkansas.

This week we celebrated one of our long standing 911 operators. Tricia Woodard started her career at the Springdale Police Department on February 3, 1997. She has worked on every shift answering calls from citizens. Tricia has also been a trainer for other dispatchers and has served as a supervisor. Tricia was recently promoted to the Assistant Dispatch Manager/Training Coordinator for all of our 911 operators. When asked, Tricia stated the most rewarding part of her career has been "serving the citizens, police, fire, and EMS personnel in my home town." 911 operators are the unsung heroes of any emergency situation. They answer the call no matter the time of day. Without them the citizens would not receive the help needed in an emergency. Help us in thanking Tricia Woodard for 21 years of dedicated service to the City of Springdale.
