It is the mission of the Pine Bluff Police Department Community Relations to promote good citizen and law enforcement involvement, recognizing that the actions and demeanor of department personnel in dealing with the general public have a significant impact on the image of the department and ultimately its overall effectiveness and level of acceptance within the community.
Starting in the month of June to July, we have a six-week program called P.A.Y Camp (Police and Youth). This camps ranges from the ages of 6-16 years old and is open to boys and girls. The camps curriculum base is motivation, leadership, self-esteem, school academics, team building, arts and crafts, recreational, field trips, etc. The camp is from 8:00 AM- 4:00 PM with breakfast, lunch, and a snack provided. Our goal is to provide the children of our community with something to do over the summer months and to reinforce the concepts of staying drug and violence free. We strive to instill discipline, educate our participants, build character, foster respect toward others, and have a little fun at the same time. Our officers are a huge part in this program with help from our older students who have been employed thru the summer work program.
