For The Arkadelphian

The Clark County Retired Teachers Association visited and then had an enjoyable meeting with two informative speakers.

Arkadelphia Police Chief Jason Jackson shared lots of information about the duties and activities of the personnel under his command. He listed some crime and drug statistics for this area, while emphasizing that Clark County is uniquely blessed that the city, county and court employees all work very closely and cooperatively together to keep our communities safe. He then answered questions from the group.
