Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office: Operation STOP

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

Captain Philip Pevehouse with the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office just thought his school days were over! But, thankfully for the safety of our children, they aren’t!

Pevehouse spent his afternoon riding a school bus route for Greenwood Public Schools, keeping a watchful eye out for drivers not obeying the “flashing red, kids ahead.”

In partnership with the Arkansas State Police, the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office will be continuing the operation throughout the county. Pevehouse said he hopes to get approval from the Hackett and Lavaca School Districts next.

“We plan to keep it going throughout the school year,” added Pevehouse.

Everyday buses transport thousands of children to and from school, and law enforcement make it a top priority to keep them safe. A motorist must stop for a school bus with flashing red lights. State law requires motorists to stop at least 25 feet away if he/she is traveling on a two-lane road or on a multi-lane highway. Penalties include a fine of up to $2,500 or 90 days in jail.
