AG Rutledge Seeks Nominations for Outstanding Officer of the Year

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- - Attorney General Leslie Rutledge is looking for nominations for Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer of the Year. 

AG Rutledge will also be recognizing one law enforcement officer from each county as an Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer. The awards recognize college or university, municipal, county or state law enforcement officers who go the extra mile. Nominations will be accepted from police chiefs, county sheriffs, county judges, mayors, prosecutors and other law enforcement leaders from across Arkansas.

“On this Peace Officers Memorial Day, I am honored to call for nominations for our outstanding officers and to recognize them for their dedication to our communities,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Sitting at the funeral of Lt. Kevin Mainhart of Yell County, I thought of the dangers our police officers face each day to protect and serve family, friends and strangers alike. May God bless all of our officers in Arkansas and across the country.”

The awards will be presented at the 15th annual Arkansas Law Enforcement Summit this fall.
