Priority Calls for Service & Fingerprints

At this time, and until further notice, the Maumelle Police Department will only respond to priority calls for service. A priority call for service is any situation where there is a crime in progress. We are strongly encouraging everyone to make reports over the phone.

Additionally, you may be asked to complete your report over the phone with a Maumelle Police Officer. We are taking these measures in an abundance of caution for your safety as well as the safety of our officers. Police Officers frequently are in contact with many citizens, and we want to minimize the potential of our daily interactions from causing an exposure risk to you.

Also, fingerprinting for employment or other functions outside law enforcement is suspended indefinitely.

We recognize this may cause some inconvenience to you, but do appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.

Sex Offender Community Notification

Community Notification:

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.

LEVEL OF RISK FOR ADULT AND JUVENILE OFFENDERS

Based on historical data and information obtained from the risk assessment process, offenders are assigned to the following levels of risk to the general public:

LOW RISK-1: Usually these are individuals with no prior history of sexual acting out, and no strong antisocial tendencies, sexual compulsions or psychological factors impairing judgment.

MODERATE RISK-2: Usually these are individuals with limited or circumscribed prior history of sexual acting out, possess some antisocial personality characteristics, predatory tendencies, or deviant sexual interest or behavioral patterns that increase the general level of risk these offenders pose. They may have mild or well-controlled mental disorders, and/or developmental disabilities.

HIGH RISK-3: These individuals usually have histories of repeat sexual offending, and/or strong antisocial, violent or predatory personality characteristics. Sexual compulsions are likely to be present, but may be kept under control when relapse prevention plans are followed and treatment is continued. The offense patterns of these individuals reflect a relatively high probability of re-offense and/or a risk of substantial injury to victims should re-offense occur.

SEXUALLY DANGEROUS PERSON-4: These are individuals with impaired judgment or control who have sexual or violent compulsions that they lack the ability to control. This may be due to pedophilia or other disorder of sexual attraction, mental illness or personality disorder that distorts thinking, interferes with behavioral control, and predisposes the person to acts of predatory sexual violence.

Community Notification - SEX OFFENDER

The Maumelle Police Department is releasing information pursuant to section 13 of Act 989 of 1997, known as the Sex and Child Offender Registration and Community Notification Guidelines. This act authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender's presence when the release of such information will enhance public safety and protection. Individuals appearing on these notifications have been convicted of an offense requiring registration with the Arkansas Crime Information Center.

THIS OFFENDER IS NOT WANTED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT AT THIS TIME.

Four community notification levels apply. The higher the level assigned, the broader the notification to the community. Level 1 (Low) warrants minimal notice to the community (usually other law enforcement and/or members of the offender's household only). Level 2 (Moderate) warrants limited notice to specific groups.  Level 3 (High) warrants notification of all community members likely to encounter the offender. Level 4 is reserved for offenders who have a habitual or serious pattern of offending and are deemed sexually dangerous persons.

This notification is not intended to increase fear. It is our belief that an informed public will be safer. Information is available through many resources, including the state website maintained by the Arkansas Crime Information Center. More information is available from the resources listed on the back of this flyer. Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate, or harass offenders will not be tolerated. Such abuse could potentially end law enforcement's ability to share this information with the public. If notification ends, the offender will win since they derive power through secrecy.

Halloween 2019 - Safety Tips

SAFETY TIPS FOR HALLOWEEN
Halloween is approaching, and we expect large groups of children to be out and about that evening, enjoying the festivities. 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. Please review these with your children before they begin their trick-or-treat adventure.
1. Fake swords, knives, 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 flexible materials.
2. Keep costumes short to prevent trips and falls.
3. Only purchase costumes and accessories that are marked flame-resistant.
4. Try using makeup instead of a mask. Masks can obstruct a child's vision, which can be dangerous when they are crossing streets and going up and down stairs.
5. Costumes with light colors and/or reflective tape are best. Someone in the group should carry a flashlight. Consider putting reflective tape on the candy bags too.
6. Children should always trick-or-treat in groups, never alone, and preferably with adult supervision. Children should carry a cell phone for quick communication.
7. 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 parked vehicles or shrubs.
8. Drivers should slow down and use extreme caution, especially in neighborhoods where children will be trick-or-treating.
9. Children should be instructed to stop only at familiar homes where the outside lights are on. They should also be advised to NEVER go inside 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.
10. Children (and adults) should only consume unopened candies and treats in original wrappers. Treats with open packaging or torn wrappers should be discarded.
11. Children should not eat any treats until they get home and a parent or adult can examine them.
12. As an alternative of going door-to-door, parents can take their children to community-sponsored events such as those hosted by community centers, churches, schools, etc.

With a little preparation, communication and diligence, Halloween can be a safe and enjoyable evening. Of course, we will be on patrol and available to you and your children should you need us.
Thank you for your cooperation.
