Speeding Patrols in St. Charles
Speeding vehicles continue to plague our community and, in response to calls from concerned residents, the LRPD has sent motorcycle officers to
monitor speeding. Please drive within the speed limit and stop fully at all stop signs to avoid receiving a ticket. The streets being heavily
patrolled are St. Michael Drive, Loyola Drive and St. Charles Boulevard.
Residents are encouraged to call the police if unsafe driving in the community is observed. Be a responsible neighbor and help avoid a tragic
accident. Drive the speed limit!
Call the LRPD Northwest Precinct Station at 918-3500 to report speeding, reckless driving and to request speed patrols.
DO NOT BE AFRAID TO SAY "NO"!
Information on Solicitors
Many residents have asked about solicitors in the community. The LRPD has provided this information to help residents.
Door-to-door solicitors should have a Solicitor's Permit from the Treasury Management Division of the City of Little Rock Finance Department. The permit can be a "For-Profit" or "Non-Profit". If you choose to talk to them, immediately ask to see their permit and if they don't have it, call the LRPD at 371-4829.
Be wary of salespersons who start their sales pitch by saying they are "just taking a survey" or "trying to get rid of extra inventory".
Look very closely at the deals that offer "free gifts" and that depend on the purchase of another product or a packaged deal.
Do not ever let a salesperson into your home unless you have proper identification and have determined exactly what he or she wants.
No matter how attractive an offer appears, refrain from making an immediate purchase. It is wise to take a couple of days to consider the actual offer or deal presented.
Take time to compare the salesperson's price and product with others.

It seems more people are out fixing up their lawns and gardens now that Spring is here. The Little Rock Police Department wants to remind everyone how important landscaping is when it comes to deterring crime.
Sight lines in and out of your home are critical - especially around windows and doors. Keep shrubs trimmed down to a height no taller than 3-4' and tree limbs pruned up to a height of at least 8-10'.
Planting prickly species near windows and doors can even deter someone from using it as cover or a hiding spot. Be aware though, that prickly leaves tend to collect litter, and keeping your lawn well maintained sends a message to potential intruders that you care about your property and are willing to defend it.
While you are taking the time to tend to the lawn, inspect the lighting on your property. Every entrance to your home should have a high-quality, working light overhead that shines during all hours of the night. Before you go looking for a flood light that can allow light trespass into your neighbors' windows; however, remember you want cut-off lights that shine downward to illuminate what is is you want to be able to see or have a camera capture.
Landscape lighting can also be useful for increasing an intruder's risk of detection and showcasing your hard work.
