According to a report from the department, on Sunday, 12-28-2014, at approximately 5:50 pm, the Rogers Police Department took a graffiti call at the Kum-and-Go located at 1701 W New Hope Road. The graffiti was written on the wall inside the bathroom stall and stated…
— “A cop will be killed new year’s night in Rogers, AR 12-31-14, MS 13.” —
There are no suspects at this time, but it is believed this threat is connected to or influenced by threats made several days ago against law enforcement by people in other parts of the country.
Threats against law enforcement are nothing new. There have been threats against the police from the beginning, and I am sure there will continue to be threats against the police in the future. It goes with the territory.
This is a glimpse of what law enforcement officers face every day. They know the dangers, accept them, and they continue to do their jobs. We will make note of the threat, we will stay vigilant and alert, and we will continue to serve the people of Rogers to the best of our ability. It will not alter how we do our job.
There will be no further comments on this incident. Our response will be to continue to do our Duty.
