Ex-Cops Group Revived in Arkansas

JULY 17, 2006 - Posted at 7:55 a.m. CDT

 

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Several former law enforcement

officers in western Arkansas are reviving an organization intended

to serve retirees like themselves. What used to be called the

Arkansas Retired Municipal Police Officers Association is now the

Arkansas Retired Law Enforcement Officers Association.

The group was originally created in 1986 by retired Fort Smith

police officers, but had been inactive for a number of years.

The association's new president is Paul Rivaido, retired from

the Fort Smith Police Department. First vice president is Bob

Watson, also retired from Fort Smith. Retired former Russellville

police chief Ronnie Stobaugh is the group's second vice president.

Another retired officer from Russellville, Ron Mainhart, serves as

liaison with the Fraternal Order of Police.
