Community Notification - SEX Offenders

The Maumelle Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to Section 13 of Act 989 of 1997, the Sex and Child Offender Registration Act and the community notification guidelines promulgated by the Commission on Abuse, which authorizes Law Enforcement Agencies to inform the public of a sex offender’s release. Such information will enhance public safety and protection.


The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of an offense that requires registration with the Arkansas Crime Information Center. Further, his/her previous criminal history places him/her in a classification level that reflects the potential to re-offend.
This Offender has advised the Maumelle Police Department that he/she will be living in the location listed in this report. HE/SHE IS NOT WANTED BY THE POLICE. THE NOTIFICATION IS NOT INTENDED TO INCREASE FEAR; RATHER IT IS OUR BELIEF AN INFORMED PUBLIC IS A SAFER PUBLIC.


The Maumelle Police Department has no legal authority to direct where a Sex Offender lives. Unless court ordered restrictions exist, this Offender is free to live where he/she chooses.
Sex Offenders have always lived in our communities, but it wasn’t until this passage of the Sex and Child Offender Registration Act that law enforcement even knew where they were living. In many cases, law enforcement is now able to share the information with you. CITIZEN ABUSE OF THIS INFORMATION TO THREATEN, INTIMIDATE OR HARASS REGISTERED SEX OFFENDERS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. Further abuse could potentially end law enforcement’s ability to do community notifications. We believe the only person who wins, if community notifications end are the Offender, since sex offenders derive their power through secrecy.

SAFETY TIPS FOR HALLOWEEN

 

Halloween is approaching quickly and we expect large groups of children out and about that evening. Our primary concern on Halloween, and any other time, is the safety of children. With that in mind, we would like to offer the following safety tips. It is a good idea to review these with your children before they begin their “trick-or-treat” adventure.

Fake knives, swords, guns, and other costume accessories can potentially cause injury. Make sure they aren’t too long for the costume and review with your child that they are part of the costume and not a weapon. Make sure they are made out of cardboard or other flexible materials. Only purchase costumes and accessories that are marked flame-resistant. Keep costumes short to prevent trips and falls.  Try using makeup instead of a mask. Masks can obstruct a child’s vision, which can be dangerous for when kids are crossing streets and going up and down steps. Costumes with light colors and/or reflective tape are best. Someone in the group should carry a flashlight. Consider putting reflective tape on their bags too.  Children should always trick-or-treat in groups, rather than alone, preferably with adult supervision and carry a cell phone for quick communication. Parents should select the safest route for children to take. Children should stay on sidewalks (where available) or on the shoulder of the roadway facing traffic. Children should avoid walking in the roadway, in alleys or poorly lit areas, and be cautious not to dart from behind shrubs or parked vehicles. Drivers should slow down and use extreme caution, especially in neighborhoods where children are sure to be located. Children should be instructed to stop only at familiar homes and where the outside lights are on. They should also be advised to NEVER go into a home or car to collect treats. They should not stop at houses that are dark or do not have the porch lights turned on. As an alternative of going door to door, parents should consider taking their children to community sponsored events such as those hosted by community centers, churches, schools, etc. Children should not eat any treats until they get home and the parent or adults can examine them.  Children (and adults) should only consume unopened candies and treats in original wrappers. Treats with open packaging or torn wrappers should be discarded. Don’t forget to inspect fruit and homemade treats for anything that looks suspicious.

Halloween can be a safe and enjoyable evening with a little preparation, communication and diligence. Of course, our officers will be on patrol and available to you and your children should you need us.

Thank you for your cooperation.
