SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KFTA) — The Springdale Police Department held a ceremony Friday afternoon to celebrate their officers and dispatchers.
This is the first time that the department has held a mid-year ceremony.
Some of the awards include one officer being promoted to sergeant as well as two new officers being sworn in.
“I know everyone of these people and they are great, they are here to serve the public, they’re selfless and you heard some of the things they did. They go above and beyond everyday,” said Springdale Police Chief Mike Peters.
Peters went on to say they added this ceremony so they do not have to wait until the end of the year to honor their employees.
