Governor Huckabee Sanders said today that she will appoint Hot Springs Police Chief Chris Chapmond to be director of the Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Training.
Chapmond will succeed J.R. Hankins, who was appointed to the position in August 2022 by then-Gov. Asa Hutchinson. Chapmond recently served on the Arkansas School Safety Commission.
“With more than 26 years of law enforcement experience, Chapmond will bring critical knowledge and expertise to ensure that our officers are always supported,” Huckabee Sanders said in a news release.
