How can we, as a community. Help prevent crime, and know which crimes are the biggest problems? We are going to show you where the problems lie, and what should be done now and in the future to help take a bite out of crime!

As a community there is only a limited number of things that we can do in order to control what is going on. We must start with education. If we don’t educate kids starting now, then they may not know what the future will hold if they don’t follow the law. That is why it is important to have programs in schools such as D.A.R.E.
They way that we can educate them, is through the D.A.R.E. program as well as what to do if you are the victim of a crime. Many crimes go unknown because people fear that if they are illegal, they might get sent home. Or that they will be judged by those in their community. The only to help stop crime is to report crime!
Nowadays, everyone has cell phones and internet access of some kind. With that help, anyone can contact for help. There are websites out there for victims of crimes and most police stations can send you to the right places.
Lowell has 436 DWI’s over a span of 4 and a half years. The reason that Lowell has so many, as compared to Fayetteville and Springdale, is because Lowell is right in the middle of Fayetteville and Rogers. Anyone who has been out on Dickson will drive back this way and Lowell is the place to stop them. How do we stop this? EASY: make Rogers a wet county which will help bring money into the community and prevent accidents in the future.
