Maumelle, Arkansas Police Department

In the beginning (1985):

Section 1: Pursuant to Act 481 of 1985 of the General Assembly of the State of Arkansas, a Department of Public Safety is hereby created for the City of Maumelle, Arkansas.

Section 2: The Department of Public Safety shall perform the functions of and have all the rights, responsibilities and duties of a police department and fire department. The Department of Public Safety shall enforce all city ordinances, county ordinances and state and federal laws within the boundaries of the City of Maumelle and shall generally conduct all the business of a city police department. The Department of Public Safety shall also enforce all applicable fire codes, suppress all fires within the boundaries of the City of Maumelle and shall generally conduct all the business of a city fire department. The Department of Public Safety shall also respond to all emergency medical calls within the boundaries of the City of Maumelle.


To provide for today and our future (2004):

WHEREAS, the City of Maumelle’s population has and continues to grow at a significant rate; and
WHEREAS, the City of Maumelle has been served by a Department of Public Safety organized under Arkansas law whereby officers served dual purposes in times of emergency; and
WHEREAS, the City’s population has increased such that this type of Department is no longer believed by the City Council to be in the best interest of the citizens of the City of Maumelle; and
WHEREAS, the City Council resolved to apply a large portion of the funds derived from the recently enacted city sales tax and the expansion of the Maumelle Department of Public Safety to such a level as would make it possible to divide the Department into separate Police and Fire Departments and then maintain the same; and
WHEREAS, the directors of the Department have undertaken such an effort and have added and trained sufficient staff to facilitate the split of the Department; and
WHEREAS, the City Council wishes to split the Department into separate Police and Fire Departments.
