The new Walnut Ridge Police Department Complex Building is a true multi-purpose building and a wonderful addition to the City of Walnut Ridge.

Chief Thatcher and his office gave us a tour of the building and explained it’s uses. The building project was completed with funding and assistance from the Walnut Ridge Police Department, City of Walnut Ridge and the Lawrence County Quorum Court.

The building houses offices which is to be expected but the added bonus to the building is the fully operational Court Room located within which is used for Small Claims, Civil and Drug Court therefore relieving over-crowding pressures on the Lawrence County Court House. Officers have an office for multi-use, evidence storage vault, break room and fully functional kitchen.
