From the JPD:
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of one of our own.

Patrolman Vincent Parks began his employment with the Jonesboro Police Department on June 15, 2022. After completing several weeks of in-house instructional training, he and his fellow recruit classmates began their course work at the Central Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy located at Camp Robinson in North Little Rock. Patrolman Parks passed away on Sunday, July 17, 2022, during training exercises.

🙏🏽We are asking our community to keep his family in your thoughts and prayers as they mourn the loss of their loved one and we mourn the loss of our Brother in Blue.
