FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The City of Fayetteville will host a blood drive in honor of fallen officer, Stephen Carr.

Officer Carr was killed while in the line of duty in December 2019.

The event will be held Wednesday, April 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fayetteville Town Center located at 15 W. Mountain St. 

In 2020, Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan declared April 13 as Officer Stephen Carr Day in honor of his badge number, 413.
