Rearranging the deck chairs is not a solution to a problem. Buckner continues to struggle with how to deal with the crime issue in Little Rock. My guess is that maybe the rearrangement may need to start at the top and I mean all the way to the top. We are a city with stagnant ideas in leadership and it's time for some fresh innovation on all fronts. The Northwest corner innovates, Conway innovates, Little Rock stagnates.

"Buckner said the reassignment does not have anything to do with a surge in violent crime in Little Rock this year. After he took office in 2014, Buckner said, he made clear that he would be reassigning captains every few years as a way of developing the top command staff".....so he's following through with what he said. It's common in sales to swap territories around so people don't get too comfortable & complacent.
