I remember Cpt Jim Sell from the Blytheville Police Department. He was my supervisor for over 6 years when I was a correctional officer in the Corrections Division at Blytheville Police department. There was never a dull moment while he was in charge and he look out for his men of the corrections department. If there was a problem he was there to help solve it no matter what time of day or night it maybe. He was always only a phone call away. He loved to fish and he talked often of his retirement from BPD. He took me and another fellow officer to where he was building his retirement and showed us around. Showed us a great time and he always had a smile on his face when he talked to us. He was a great man and well liked by all of us in the Corrections Department. He was a fair man and very down to earth. I really enjoyed working under his command. It is truly a sad moment for us who knew him. My prayers go out to his daugther and family. God bless. Rest in Peace Jim you will be missed.

Big Boy kiss off. I don't care what all you have said about Jim Sells. He was a decent man and will be missed by many ppl and I don't just mean the police officers and law enforcement officials of Blytheville. He was a sweetheart to me as a child. I will miss you always Jim. You always cared about me and my family and we about yours.

As*hole, I worked with Captain Sells and Big Pokey for years! What is your problem, idiot? Yes, the Captain was a good, fair honest man and he is truly missed by me and a lot of others, so what the hell is your problem, fool?

Jim was a man who new the value of a good talking to, or a verbal warning serving just as good as a citation. He was someone that I looked up to in Blytheville----one of this cities finest ever.

The punk that did this was killed by officers later. He was the same guys that shot all those people in that bar up north and was on the run when he ran across Captain Sells.

I have been best friends with his daughter for 16 years and he was a wonderful person. He is still missed to this day by the family and friends who love him. Right now, prayers need to go out to his daughter...Her son passed last Tuesday. He was only 27. This is a terrible time for the family right now.
