Tuesday, December 13th, 2016 marked an important date for the Mansfield Police Dept, and the surrounding agencies. At 3:00pm, the once Mercy Clinic building located slightly south of the Mansfield City Hall, was dedicated to serve all law enforcement, and as the permanent site for the Mansfield Police department.
Mercy VP of Operations, Steve Gebhart stated, “This building constitutes our commitment to not only Mansfield Police, but the City of Mansfield, and the agencies that it will benefit. We’re currently working on creating a community health committee that will benefit everyone in this area as well.”

Mansfield Police Chief, Boyd Farmer makes the dedication official by cutting the ribbon. Huntington Police Chief, Brandon Odle (Left), and Mansfield Patrolman, Tom Garrison hold the ribbon steady.

Mansfield Police had been headquartered on property east of town, but Mayor Glen Hurt, seen a bigger picture during his time as Mayor of Mansfield, and knew the P.D. needed to be more centrally located, and near downtown Mansfield. Today’s dedication was a culmination of his efforts, and foresight.
The newly renovated P.D. now offers each of the four officers their personal office, interrogation, and investigation rooms, as well as amenities that will aid in their jobs of serving our communities in a much broader, and efficient manner.
Chief Boyd Farmer stated, “We’ll be able to serve the community in a more public manner being inside downtown. We’re extremely proud of being here at this location.”

  1. Being apart of the Mercy Team here in Mansfield causes a two fold pride for me. I am proud of my husband Chief Boyd Farmer and all that he has accomplished in his 20 years of Law Enforcement. He is dedicated to his profession, his fellow officers and the people of Mansfield. To be apart of Mercy and the fact that they donated the property for the new Police dept is such an honor. Thank you so much Dr Goodman, Steve Gebhardt and Glen Hurt our former Mayor for initiating this endeavor. God Bless You All and our town of Mansfield Arkansas.
