A police department in Arkansas is set to partially reopen two days after closing due to a lack of officers.

Mayor Lincoln E. Barnett announced the Hughes Police Department will partially reopen Feb. 1 at 7 p.m.

Barnett said, “part-time certified officers will be on part-time duty.”

That will be temporary until the department is reviewed on Feb. 6.

The department was previously closed due to a “lack of certified officers.”
