LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today issued a statement after learning of the passing of long-time Berryville Police Chief David Muniz.
“Chief David Muniz was a fighter, and I am saddened to learn of his passing,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “For the past three years, Chief Muniz has bravely battled cancer, refusing to give up. That same courage and commitment is what helped him become the longest serving police chief in Arkansas, leading the Berryville Police Department for the last 35 years and keeping the residents of Berryville safe from harm. Chief Muniz was a man of high character and a selfless public servant. I join the people of Berryville in mourning the passing of this long-time fixture in their community, and I extend my thoughts and prayers to family, friends and fellow officers.”
