Operation Good Morning, sponsored by the Bella Vista Police Department


Operation Good Morning is a program designed to help senior citizens, those with disabilities, or those living alone to feel safe at home.  Operation Good Morning generates an automated phone call each morning to members at a designated time of his or her choosing between 5 to 10 AM daily, 7 days a week. If the member answers the phone, the system will register that as a completed call for that day. If not, the system will alert dispatch, and a dispatcher will place a second call to member.  If call goes unanswered, the dispatcher will send a police officer to find out what is wrong.  This program is available to anyone, no matter the age, and is free of charge.


For more information, call 479-855-3771.

Today, the department is staffed by 26 sworn officers and 12 civilian employees, who provide police services, animal control and emergency dispatch services for police, fire, and ambulance citywide.
