Raising funds to help secure State Police sub-station

Here’s some bad news for local criminals. With the support of the Delta Bridge Project and State Rep. Clark Hall, Phillips County law enforcement agencies have formed a countywide crime task force. The objective of the task force is twofold – to better coordinate crime fighting efforts and to raise funds to establish an Arkansas State Police substation in the county.

“Crime is having a detrimental impact on the growth and prosperity of the community,” commented Hall. “Some people think Phillips County is not a safe place to live and do business and we have to change those perceptions.”

The Phillips County Crime Task Force consists of these local law enforcement agencies – the Helena-West Helena, Marvell, Elaine, and Lake View police departments and the Phillips County Sheriff’s Department. The mayors of the communities involved also have expressed their support.
