LRPD Policies

The policies of the Little Rock Police Department (LRPD), issued under the authority of the Chief of Police, set forth the standards, values, and expectations of the LRPD. These policies and procedures exist to maintain high levels of professional conduct and are the embodiment of the LRPD's concerns for ensuring effective, safe, and constitutional law enforcement. We review evidence-based research and consult publications written by the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), the Department of Justice, International Association of Chiefs of Police, Police Executive Research Forum, and other professional organizations to adopt policies that reflect national best practices.
