Community-based policing is a focus at this fall’s Arkansas Municipal League conference. About 750 municipal and county officials discussed “respect and understanding” in law enforcement on Wednesday in Springdale.
Whitnee Bullerwell is the League’s spokesperson. She said a panel of police officers and mayors shared their experiences with improving community relationships.
"Offering advice on what they've done in the past in making certain community-based policing is a priority and all demographics are taken into account and considered," she said.
