But the wave of welcoming well-wishers that greeted Russellville Police Chief James Bacon has continually swept him away from settling in completely to his new position. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, according to the chief. "Everyone has bent over backwards to welcome me," Bacon said. Bacon was sworn in as Russellville's new chief Aug. 28, with outgoing chief Kyn Wilson at his side.
...
Wilson stuck around for a week, introducing Bacon to people and familiarizing him with the town.
...
The frenzy of activity has kept Bacon, formerly chief at White Hall, pushing back free days to ride with officers or even to get his computer up and running.When Bacon tried to use the computer in his office, which had apparently sat mostly dormant for a long while, it overloaded and shut down.
...
This way, we're on their turf and they're more comfortable," Bacon said. Riding with the officers will bring the added benefit of allowing Bacon getting a better feel for the town and the types of calls street officers face. As for his computer, Bacon is ready to make use of the department's newly installed records management program.Describing the program as "amazing, phenomenal," he praised the department for selecting the integrated records system and the hard work it took to get it up and running. Bacon is well-known throughout the state for his work with curtailing drug use and trafficking.He is former coordinator of the Tri-County Drug Task Force in Jefferson, Lincoln and Arkansas counties.That task force was touted by Gov.
...
Bacon checked into the drug situation in Russellville before applying for the chief's position, he said.With Interstate 40 running through its heart, Russellville is an ideal place for traffickers to stop and fuel up, spend the night or drop drugs off, he said. "In my experience, crime rates are directly connected with drug rates," Bacon said, explaining why fighting drugs has been such as passion of his."It factors into so many other crimes." Russellville's population and crime rate places the city pretty square in between the two departments Bacon has called home - Pine Bluff, which had a high crime rate, and White Hall. His view of Russellville's crime rates so far is "pretty consistent" with what he expected. Right now, Bacon is content to observe, become acquainted with and evaluate the department without making any major changes. "I'm going to take my time.I don't want to make any rash decisions," he said.

James Bacon of White Hall will be the new Russellville police chief, Mayor Raye Turner's office announced Friday. Bacon has been White Hall police chief since February 2001.His former employers had glowing comments of Bacon. "We owe a great debt of gratitude to James.
...
Bacon will replace Kyn Wilson, who agreed to serve on an interim basis after the resignation of Ron Stobaugh in April.
...
When I interviewed, I rode around and was really impressed with the city, the department and the potential," Bacon said. Prior to his service with White Hall, which has 11 officers, he was a captain with the Pine Bluff Police Department, which has 155 officers.The Russellville Police Department currently staffs 55 officers. "I've worked at both ends of the spectrum. ...But I look at it like we work with one another, not like they work for me," he said. The same is true of spectrum of the cities' crime rates.Pine Bluff has a high crime rate, while White Hall's is very low. Bacon has spent some time in Russellville, mainly on fishing trips, he said.He fishes in a tournament circuit on Lake Dardanelle several times a year. "I heard about the opening through an officer I know and thought, ‘Let's give it a whirl.'" He said he talked to his wife once he made it to the top six and they decided to take the job if the opportunity arose. "If I'm given the opportunity, I'm ready to go and take that challenge," he said he concluded. The fact that he doesn't have many contacts in the city will serve as a benefit, Bacon said. "It will give me a new, fresh perspective coming from the outside." His law enforcement experience has included work in patrol, traffic, detective, public relations, internal affairs and narcotics divisions. He is the former coordinator of the Tri-County Drug Task Force that includes Jefferson, Lincoln and Arkansas counties.That task force was touted by Gov.
...
Bacon is certified through the Drug Enforcement Administration as a clandestine laboratory investigator and a site safety officer.He has seized more than 160 methamphetamine labs and been qualified in circuit court as an expert on methamphetamine. He has also been recognized in court as an expert on the science of fingerprints and latent print identification, according to the mayor. He and his wife, Becky, will look for housing in Russellville in the coming months, Bacon said.
