Christmas with a Jacksonville officer

Christmas with a Jacksonville officer

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - On Saturday, December 19 at 7 a.m., the Jacksonville Police Department will take part in the annual “Christmas with a Police Officer” at Wal-Mart Supercenter located at 2000 John Harden.

This year the Jacksonville Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 16 will host 15 children. These children were nominated by their schools to participate in this event, which gives each child $100 to buy gifts for themselves and their families.   

The Jacksonville Police Department believes this is another opportunity to not only give back to the community they serve, but to help build special relationships with the children involved in this program by spending quality time “shopping” with them. Officers from various ranks and divisions from the department have volunteered their time to make the difference in the lives of the children in our city.

Jefferson Co. Sheriff's Office issues reminder to parents on child identification

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ark. - (Oct. 29, 2015 – With recent flash news alerts regarding missing children, teens, and others alike throughout the state, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office decided to issue a reminder to all parents regarding the indentification of their children. 

Major Lafayette Woods, Jr. issued the following statement on Thursday:

When a child or someone you know is reported missing, emotions become raw, which can hinder the ability of parents or love ones to make rational decisions. Yet, their actions and the actions of law enforcement in the first 48 hours are critical to the safe recovery of a missing. Knowing what you can do, what others can do, and where to go for help will not only expedite the search and recovery of your child or love one, it also will help to ease the emotional and financial burden of the search.
