Below is a statement from Hot Springs City Manager Bill Burrough:
We say that our City employees are the heart of the City because they offer their service, day in and day out. For our officers, they risk their lives every time they put on the uniform to protect and serve each of us. Our hearts are broken as we have lost one of our brave heroes, Officer Brent Scrimshire. He was a decorated officer who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our city.
We appreciate the tremendous outpouring of support to our Hot Springs Police Department family and the Scrimshire family. We ask that you continue to pray for his wife and children, as well as his brothers and sisters in blue. Three accounts have been established to assist Officer Scrimshire’s family. In Hot Springs, donations are being accepted at Arvest Bank locations; and in Malvern, funds are set up at Farmers Bank and Southern Bank.
