State Police Plan Town Hall Meeting Tonight in Jonesboro for Trooper Applicants

JONESBORO, AR - Jonesboro and two other Region 8 communities will host part of a series of town hall style meetings by the Arkansas State Police in an effort to answer questions from individuals who may be considering a career with the state's largest law enforcement agency.

Jonesboro's Troop C headquarters will host one such meeting tonight beginning at 6 p.m.  Other sessions are planned for January 23 in Forrest City, at the Troop D headquarters, and on February 5 in Newport, at the Troop B headquarters.

"The department is conducting one of the most agressive recruiting campaigns we've ever undertaken," said Major Kathy Sparks, commander of the Arkansas State Police Administrative Services Division.  As many as 50 new troopers need to be hired, according to Sparks.
