Arkansas Commissions and Law Enforcement Standards Training Director Chris Chapmond, awarded the United Police Supply’s Jonathan Schmidt Memorial Scholarship to Patrolman Thomas Tuggle Jr., a graduate of BRTC’s Law Enforcement Training Academy (LETA) Class of 2023-A at the LETA graduation ceremony recently.
Patrolman Tuggle of the Heber Springs Police Department was selected for the scholarship by the LETA instructional staff based on his excellent attitude and work ethic. The $500 scholarship awarded to Tuggle will be used for his professional development.
The United Police Supply’s Jonathan Schmidt Memorial Scholarship was named in honor of Trumann Police Officer Jonathan Schmidt, a 2007-B LETA graduate, who was killed in the line of duty. Jonathan Schmidt’s family, Andrea and Keaton Schmidt, were also at the graduation to congratulate Tuggle.
