Arkansas Senators John Boozman and Tom Cotton on Sunday paid tribute at the United States Capitol to the service and sacrifice of Pine Bluff Police Department Detective Kevin Collins, who was killed in the line of duty on Oct. 5.
“Mr. President, I rise today to honor Pine Bluff Detective Kevin Collins, who died as a result of injuries he sustained while in the line of duty on Monday, Oct. 5,” Boozman said in remarks on the Senate floor. “Detective Collins was passionate about law enforcement and serving the citizens of Pine Bluff.”
Boozman described Collins as someone who served his community, not only as an officer of the law but also as a mentor and a leader.
“In an interview with the Pine Bluff Commercial in 2018, he said, ‘Ever since I was little, I saw law enforcement as a service and something I could be proud of,'” said Boozman. “He worked his entire life to achieve that dream.”
