Maumelle’s Lt. Jim Hansard, left and Chief Sam Williams, right, were among the hundreds of law enforcement officers from around the state who stopped by North Little Rock Police chief Danny Bradley’s retirement ceremony last Thursday, Feb. 27 as Bradley ended his 39-year career to become chief of staff to North Little Rock Mayor Joe Smith. Maumelle and North Little Rock have mutual aid agreements all along the borders between the two cities but especially along Maumelle Boulevard. Williams said he’s looking forward to working with interim chief Mike Davis as both cities continue to work together.
