Cotton Honors Arkansas Law Enforcement, Prosecutors

Written by Press Release

Little Rock, AR – Yesterday, Senator Tom Cotton participated in a ceremony with U.S. Attorney Cody Hiland of the Eastern District of Arkansas to thank state, local, and federal law enforcement officers and prosecutors for their work in reducing violent crime. The officers and prosecutors collaborate on all levels through the U.S. Department of Justice’s Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) program, which aims to reduce crime through collaborations that identify and target the most serious offenders in each district for prosecution.

The honorees included:

  • Ian Ward, ATF Task Force Officer and Little Rock Police Officer;
  • Michael Gibbons, ATF Task Force Officer and North Little Rock Police Detective;
  • Pete Lochner, ATF Task Force Officer and Jonesboro Police Officer;
  • Amanda Fields, Deputy Prosecutor, 6th Judicial District of Arkansas; and
  • Benecia Moore, Assistant United States Attorney and PSN Coordinator

“I’m proud to see so many of our state and federal law enforcement officers and prosecutors working together to reduce violent crime,” said Cotton. “Thanks to the dedication of each of these prosecutors, agents, and officers, Project Safe Neighborhoods prosecutions have skyrocketed in the Eastern District of Arkansas. It is no surprise, then, that gun crimes and shots fired are generally decreasing in the district as a result of that work. There are fewer shootings, fewer robberies, and fewer victims. Arkansans are grateful for this critical work, and I am honored to be able to recognize a few of these outstanding officers and prosecutors.”
