SMALL ROCK, AR – Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke yesterday with public safety officials, recovery and reintegration experts, and law enforcement officials from across Arkansas to discuss ways to ensure a safer future for the state.
The group exchanged ideas about reducing violent crime, tackling the drug epidemic, and providing law enforcement with the resources they need to protect our communities.
“As governor, I will ensure that Arkansas is a state of law and order that is tough on crime because when our communities are safe, our people are empowered,” Sanders said. “Our goal will always be to pursue those who deserve it and help those who want it. We will invest in public safety by reducing violent crime, fighting the drug epidemic, and improving officer recruitment and retention to create a safer Arkansas for our children.
In this series of policy roundtables focused on empowering Arkansans, Sanders hosted roundtables on education, tourism, and outdoor recreation. She will host roundtables with leaders on economic development and workforce development, among other topics, over the coming weeks.
Since launching her campaign just over a year ago, Sanders has broken the fundraising record for most funds ever raised by an Arkansas gubernatorial candidate and has been endorsed by the Governor Asa Hutchinson, the entire Arkansas Congressional delegation and 101 Arkansas State Legislators.
