**JPD IS ASKING FOR YOU HELP TO KEEP GUNS OUT OF THE HANDS OF CRIMINALS**

So far, in 2018 (all 12 days of it) we have taken 12 reports in which the victim reported having a gun or multiple guns stolen. Of those 12 reports, ten of them were the result of Vehicle Breaking or Entering with a total of twelve guns having been stolen this year out of vehicles. To break that down, that is one for every day of this very young 2018.

One more set of stats for you: In 2017, there were 159 guns stolen out of vehicles in Jonesboro. These guns ran the gamut from handguns to shotguns to rifles. If you are interested, the photos list of all of the guns stolen from vehicles last year and to date this year.

These are guns that went directly into the hands of criminals, which affects the safety of our city. These guns, now that they are in circulation where they should not be, are much more likely to be used in the commission of a crime. A criminal with a gun poses a direct threat to the safety of our officers, which could have a tragic outcome.

It is our mission at the Jonesboro Police Department to do the best we can at deterring crime in the City of Jonesboro; a mission that each of our officers takes very seriously. We also realize that crime occurs because of the actions of criminals. In addition, like you, we all wish we lived in a world where we could trust our fellow citizens to not take things that do not belong to them. However, the stark reality of life today is that is just not the way things are.

The City of Jonesboro is one of the safest places in Arkansas to live. That is due to the good nature of the overwhelming majority of the people that live and visit here as well as the hard work of our officers that strive day in and day out to keep Jonesboro a safe place. However, there are those in our society that will choose to break the law and we need your help to keep them from getting what they are after.

Responsible gun owners understand that it is their duty to safeguard their firearms. So, once again, we ask that if you have a gun in your vehicle (or any valuables for that matter) be responsible and remove them when you are not in your car. Your gun does you no good if it is not with you when you need it and does nothing but bad when it is in the hands of someone who has no respect for the law.

Please share!

WE ARE EXCITED TO SEE THIS MOVING FORWARD

Shooting range land sale complete

The City of Jonesboro closed Monday on property that will allow the City to move forward with the planned Jonesboro Shooting Range Complex/Educational Center.

The City purchased 208.7 acres on Moore’s Road in southeast Jonesboro from multiple owners for a price of $1.276 million.

The closing marked a significant step in a $10 million project that includes a $2 million grant obtained by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

“This is a big step in making our shooting range a reality,” Jonesboro Mayor Harold Perrin said. “Signing those papers was a relief, because we’ve been through a lot of ups and downs, and I’m grateful to the landowners for being patient, and Arkansas Game and Fish for its tremendous work in obtaining the grant.”

The shooting range will be not only a significant upgrade for Jonesboro police training, but its design will make it an attraction for shooting and archery enthusiasts around the region. The $2 million federal grant comes through the Pittman-Robertson Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act’s Basic Hunter Education and Safety Program.

The complex will include nine trap/skeet fields, a 200-yard rifle range, a 50-yard pistol range, and 3-D and traditional archery ranges. The main building will have a classroom to hold 80 to 100 people for training/educational purposes.

“We will have training classes for shooting sports and archery – things like hunter education, safety, how to shoot trap, etc.,” Jonesboro Chief of Police Rick Elliott said. “This will definitely be a public-private partnership, so we are finding corporate donors to offset expenses.”

In the big picture, the facility will be a financial boon to the Jonesboro tax roll, city Chief Financial Officer Bill Reznicek said.

“Our police department can share it with the public, and we can host a lot of events that will bring in tourism revenue,” Reznicek said, adding that the facility is a basic need for police but also a source of entertainment for shooting enthusiasts.

“Their current facility is pretty primitive,” he said. “This will be better and should bring in some A&P tourism dollars. That’s almost a no-brainer.”

Preliminary drawings are complete, and the next step is architecture, Elliott said.

“We will finish up plans on the site work, and we will bid out for a contractor for site development,” he said.
