POCAHONTAS, AR Mar. 8 –Dale and Amy Barber, owners of United Police Supply, and Andrea Schmidt, wife of fallen officer Jonathan Schmidt, were recently on the BRTC Pocahontas campus to announce the establishment of the United Police Supply’s Jonathan Schmidt Memorial Scholarship.

The $500 scholarship will be presented to an officer at each Law Enforcement Training Academy (LETA) graduation. The scholarship will be used by the selected graduate for professional development. The graduate will be selected by LETA instructional staff and will be awarded based on attitude, work ethic, and need.
