Gang Activity Public Forum

Monday, October 7, 2019

A public forum, created by Jonesboro Mayor Harold Perrin and Jonesboro Police Department, to discuss gang-related violence in Northeast Arkansas. Gangs have been operating in the region for many years. This program provides information that may help community leaders, educators and law enforcement identify and respond to signs and actions of gang activity. Forum speakers include Craighead County chief deputy prosecuting attorney Grant DeProw; Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Charlene Davidson Henry, who works with the task force; Jonesboro Police Chief Rick Elliott; and Taskforce commander and JPD Lt. Kenneth Oldham. The panelists will discuss gang signs and activities, and the program will include a question-and-answer session. Roy Ockert, retired editor of The Sun, will serve as moderator. The program is open and free to the public.
