Ty Tyrrell ’99

Alumna Ty Tyrrell, a Captain with the Little Rock Police Department, has been working on a Technology Innovation for Public Safety, or TIPS, grant for our city. The grant allows for purchasing technology to help with searching for guns, shell casings, and such at crime scenes as well as fund and develop interviewing of suspects, victims, and witnesses. The grant, written back in February of 2017, will allow the LRPD to partner with UA Little Rock’s Criminal Justice Department in researching improvements that may need to be made. Captain Tyrrell reported the grant is worth nearly $500,000 and will be able to positively effect firearm violence in Little Rock.
