CONWAY, Ark. - Officers with the Conway Police Department will be out in full force this Holiday Season so that you can 'Shop Secure.'
The City Council has allocated $50,000 to have four additional officers per shift to work overtime from November 26 to December 27. Along with regular patrols all over town, two officers will focus specifically on the Commons shopping center, one will work the Towne Center and we will have an officer patrolling the downtown area.
“We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback in the past from both business owners and customers about the presence of police officers in the shopping centers,” said Chief Spradlin with the Conway Police Department. “Many felt safer and strongly believed it was a deterrence to crime.”
