• Service to the community/doing the right thing at 2600 block of Prince Street.

A local mother on her way to visit her children at Children’s Hospital locked her keys in her car on Wednesday. The officer told the woman that police are only supposed to use their unlock kits in cases where there is an immediate emergency, and she didn't meet the criteria.

“However,” the officer wrote in his report, “she explained that she was currently unemployed and could not afford to pay a wrecker or locksmith at the time and desperately needed to get to Little Rock.” The officer unlocked her car.
