In the upcoming May 2014 issue of GUNS & WEAPONS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT, author Andre’ M. Dall’au writes, “Wedged between the lower Mississippi River and the sweeping Great Plains, centered where the northern highlands meet the southern lowlands of Arkansas, is the state capitol of Little Rock. Just southwest of Little Rock, astride I-30, is the bedroom community of Bryant, which is policed by a small but well organized and effective department, the Bryant Police Department, which prides itself on its preparedness and training to protect both the inhabitants and hundreds of thousands of commuters that cruise through their jurisdiction daily.

“As with other communities, organized criminal activity, even some gang-related, is moving into the quiet and peaceful area, bringing in the manufacture and distribution of drugs, such as methamphetamines, ‘bath salts’ and other contraband. These illegally produced synthetic compounds are made and sold without regard to consequence or effect on the people, mostly kids, who are unaware of the incredible risk that they are taking. While giving the effect similar to amphetamines and cocaine, these chemical concoctions are unknown in strength, duration or contaminants. Simply stated, use of these criminally produced products is a form of Russian roulette, as there is no way of predicting a safe dosage and it is unknown if the effects are cumulative (with each succes- sive dose causing exponentially increasing negative effects and the possibility of death), so active law enforcement to identify and stop these backroom chemists, saving lives and families from needless tragedies, is very important.

“The Bryant Police Department (BPD) is well supported, trained and equipped to overcome these threats and challenges.” To learn more, check out the May 2014 issue of GUNS & WEAPONS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT, available on newsstands and digitally March 4, 2014. To subscribe, go to
