AR Attorney General Expands Law Enforcement Training to NWA

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.-- - Arkansas Attorney General is expanding top-flight opportunities to law enforcement in Northwest Arkansas.

The event is set for April 11 from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at the Metroplex Event Center in Springdale.

“The huge growth in demand because of the dynamic speakers over the last two years of the annual Law Enforcement Summit shows the level of interest in opportunities for cutting edge training for our men and women who wear the badge,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “While the annual Law Enforcement Summit is an enormous success, as the chief law enforcement officer, I am committed to making it easier for our dedicated officers across the State to access the best trainings without having to incur the cost of traveling all the way to Little Rock.”

This event is the first time the training has been offered outside of central Arkansas.

Law enforcement will receive a first responder and wellness training, including suicide prevention, stress, anger management and officer post-traumatic stress disorder.

Speakers include U.S. Air Force veteran and former police officer Dr. Olivia Johnson and Lt. Brian Murphy, who was the first officer on the scene of the Sikh Temple Tragedy and was awarded the Medal of Valor in 2015.
