Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott, Jr. issued the following statement Monday morning after he was informed by Interim Police Chief Crystal Young-Haskins that she is resigning:
“Interim Chief Young-Haskins is an exemplary law enforcement officer who has served the City of Little Rock with dignity, honor and professionalism for more than 16 years. She has a national reputation for excellence, and I am grateful for her leadership and willingness to take on the position of interim chief during this transition. I wish her the very best as she pursues new and challenging career opportunities.”
Young-Haskins has served as interim chief since May 21, after former LRPD Chief Keith Humphrey retired from law enforcement on May 20, 2022.
Mayor Scott said the nationwide search for Little Rock police chief is continuing and that effective June 18, current Assistant Chief Wayne Bewley will serve as interim chief.”
