Dr. Jeffrey Walker, chair of the Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, is among the panelist to serve during a free Safety Seminar open to real estate agents from across the state.
The Arkansas Real Estate School is hosting the seminar from 9 a.m. to noon on Monday, Oct. 27, at the Arkansas Realtors Association, 11224 Executive Center Dr., Little Rock.
Expert panelists from law enforcement, criminology, law, and real estate will provide information about crime prevention and legal issues. A question-and-answer session will follow.
Ken Gill, chair of the Arkansas Real Estate Commission, will serve as panel moderator.
Other panelists include Torrie Cobb, a retired Little Rock Police Department officer and realtor; Keith Pike, attorney and real estate broker; Pulaski County Sheriff Doc Holladay; and Pulaski County Prosecutor Larry Jegley.
A U.S. Bureau of Labor study shows the real estate industry experiences about a 40 percent higher rate of on-the-job crime than the average profession, and seminar organizers say a large percentage of these events are “crimes of opportunity.”
Realtors may register for the seminar online or by calling 501-223-2737. Space is limited to about 100 participants; however, a second session will be added if strong enough interest is indicated.
