LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The City of Little Rock has officially heard from all four police chief candidates.
The final forum wrapped up Wednesday night at Philander Smith College.
Wednesday Asst. Chief Alice Fulk shared her vision for the city.
“We need somebody that has been here, that understand the problems here,” Fulk said.
Fulk has worked up the ranks in LRPD for 27 years.
“I feel like I have done everything I can do to prepare myself,” referring to her education and community involvement.
Among the faces in the crowd was Little Rock native Randall Scott, who’s attended every forum searching for the candidate who can do this:
“Bring the city together, bring the crime way down and be involved in the community,” he said.
Fulk listed several community policing initiatives that she has started or been a part of during the forum.
But says there needs to be more starting day one.
“We’re going to get out of our cars a little more and we’re going to start making positive contacts with our citizens,” she said.
Changes she says that need to be done now.
“There’s always a learning curve going with an external chief and we don’t have time for that right now.”
Even if she has to make history to do it.
“Mr. mayor, I just want to remind you, this is March, it’s Women’s History Month, it’s time to make some history.”
