Since we've moved here ( now 4 years ) we've seen severe domestic violence , we've had our lawn mower stripped for the parts , tires stolen , in recent month tires slashed and was told it was happening in several places including the police department , more tires stolen again with them chained since report was made , car broke into and tools stolen , and to top it off tonight again car broke into and entire bag full of tools stolen and left the door wide open. Since our report to the police over a month ago and them telling us nothing can be done that crime is rising drasticly in this part of Paragould have we seen more patrol etc since then? NO. Common sense would tell our protectors and crime fighters to patrol more in this area. In all the years we have lived on this side of Paragould I have never seen random patrolling over here . Only time they come is if they're called and they still get lost with you standing in the yard waving them down. What in the hell has happened to this place?!

you got that right. Paragould's finest will do as little as possible to help you . I refuse to call them anymore . I have called them on some teens throwing rocks and busting my siding on my home. well when they showed up 30 to 40 minutes later, they treated me like i was the criminal . run me for warrants and just acted like there was nothing they could do since i had no clue who it was and they were done gone. I guess people can do whatever in this town and get away with it.

They will however sit out by Roy's morning and evening and harvest the huge supply of hard working folks trying to go to work and coming home who might be going five miles over the speed limit.
Unless you go to Westview church that is where our glorious mayor goes, then you can do no wrong.

no disrespect to any residents living on"the wrong side of the tracks". we all used to be the middle class families. now we are the working poor. but we work hard for what we have. we rent from slumlords. but that does not mean our apts, or home are not clean , and we have nice things also. keep the police ph. number posted where you can call. when you get up in the middle of the night ,take a quick look out in your nieborhood, anyone suspicious looking call.see how long it takes our protectors and servers to get in the area.that is -if they come at all. talk too you're nieghbors, try to work together. let the police know, that you mean business. i don't know about anyone else, but i am going to start a watch of my own.

The cop that came out told us our very own neighbors are known dealers lol and are being semi watched but won't do anything about it at the same time all because we're on the "wrong side of the tracks". They are supposed to start doing patrols every 3 hours around here now until we move. That is if we can find something safer then where we live. We pay 500 dollars a month for rent, not including utilities "400-600" a month , our land lord's handy men are supposed to take care of the yard but they don't even do that. We would but parts have been stolen off our own lawn mower. I always knew Paragould was majority trashy and a lot of crime but I never knew it was to this extent.

I suggest you call KAIT and get the news media involed. This will encourage a neighborhood watch program. I am sure the police could solve these crimes, after all Paragould was named the safest city in Arkansas several years ago and can do it again.

you have got to be kidding!! Crime in Paragould. Did you guys get a lot of blacks in your town or is someone finally admitting that moving to a majority white town will not get you away from crime. the whites in Jonesboro are complaining about crime too, but they are saying that the blacks are commiting the crimes. WOW!!

When you go to the local Walmart you can no longer call Paragould a majority white town.
Katrina, Fat girls, and cheap employers have change it into a quite diverse town with a significant increase in all crimes. New residents always bring scumbags with them.

Two mexicans in a silver car purposely pulled out in front of me on my motorcycle laughing yesterday causing me to almost wreck. I have a friend in Texas who told me that is just the start that it is so bad down there you cannot feel safe.
And they wonder why whites develop racist tendecies.
As for me I now hate all blacks and latinos.
If there were good ones they would police the others.

that's funny...everytime I read about a crime there in Paragould it usually be a white person and now you guys are trying to say the town changed because of Mexicans and blacks. your own color is turning against all you stuck up want to be someone white people. most of you are just living from one paycheck to another just like everyone else. stop turning your nose down on blacks.

The more they get away with the worse it will get, testing the waters to see what a wimpy town this is.

I have not seen a rise in any ethnic group in Paragould. The only rise I've seen is the crime , neglect from our police dpt, highway dpt , etc. The city council is neglecting the town . All I have ever seen in Paragould is huge amount of druggies , alcoholics , etc out and about all over the place here and they're white..... I've lived in Memphis and other multi cultured areas and if noticed , I never ever said one thing about race etc when I started this topic , so those that let lose and got off on that way are wrong. We only have one problem in this town and it's the lack of our very own council doing and enforcing what they're meant to do.

radio shack has cameras you can get for 25-35 dollars and they can be set up just like the higher priced one...the pic just isnt as clear...but you can still see who it is....i know because we have one....if it hadnt been for the camera....we would have lost a welder and plasma cutter...but police cant argue with you when you have it right in front of them.

Both my grandmothers have died in the past year and both of their houses have been broken into, before my relatives where able to process any of their belongings. One of my grandmothers' mobility scooters was stolen and showed up at Bucca John's Flea Market. Be careful with unattended homes.
