On June 28, 2018 at 6:45pm, Russellville Police officers responded to the 600 block of West K Street in reference to a person who had shot at bail bondsmen that were attempting to apprehend the suspect on felony warrants. When officers arrived on scene, the suspect fired additional shot from inside of the apartment where he had barricaded himself. Russellville Police established a perimeter around the apartment complex and began negotiating with the suspect. The surrounding apartment complexes in the immediate area were evacuated, while assistance was requested from the Arkansas State Police Tactical Unit. At approximately 2:15am, the suspect exited the apartment and began firing at officers, who then engaged the suspect. The suspect, who was a white male, age 37, died at the scene. For further information concerning the investigation of the officer involved shooting, please contact Bill Sadler with the Arkansas State Police. Russellville Police would like to thank the Arkansas State Police, Pope County Sheriff’s Office, Russellville Fire Department, Pope County EMS, Arkansas Tech University Public Safety, Pope County 911, Entergy, City Corporation, and the Office of the Mayor for their assistance in this incident.

Don't be an easy victim! Thieves take advantage when you aren't diligent. The #9pmroutine means taking a look for suspicious activity, removing valuables from your car, and then locking the doors! Please share with your friends!

This is why the #9pmroutine is important! If you recognize anyone in the video, please let LRPD know. Now- protect what is yours: 1. Go outside and look for anyone suspicious. 2. Remove all valuables- wallets, phones, guns, etc from your car. 3. Lock the doors. 4. Turn on an outside light as you go inside for the night.

We are proud to have another certified Crime Scene Technician! Congratulations to Detective Ben Tucker who graduated the Arkansas Criminal Justice Institute six week program today. Joining him at graduation was Lieutenant Glenn Daniel and Captain Carey James.

We had the opportunity to be a part of St. Mary’s Regional Hospital’s summer youth MASH (Medical Applications of Science and Health) program where Officer Matthew Noble instructed on the dangers of drunk driving and texting while driving. The students were able to experience the effects of of drunk driving by wearing specialized googles that simulates impairment while operating a golf cart through a driving course. Sorry to report that some of the orange traffic cones did not survive the experience. Thanks for having us be a part of your camp and learning experience.
