Local law enforcement officers were at Hurricane Creek Elementary Monday, August 22, to escort a student to her first day of school. Officers lined the front of the school, serving as a stand-in for the student’s father, Sgt. Caudell who was killed in the line of duty. He has three children, who were “the light and focus of his life,” according to a KARK article.

Sgt. Caudell served in the Tucker K-9 Unit and had been with the Department of Corrections since December 2012. In addition to his time at the Tucker Unit, he worked at the Cummins Unit, Maximum Security Unit, Varner/Varner Super Max Unit and the Pine Bluff Unit.
From the Bryant Police Department Facebook page: “This was a way for our agencies to honor the memory and service to Sgt Caudell and his daughter Emma. We hope she has an amazing year in her new school.”
