Fort Smith PD needs volunteers!!

From time to time, FSPD conducts training that requires volunteers to help out.  If you would like to volunteer your time, and are at least 18 years old and have an email address, you can sign up to receive email alerts when volunteers are requested by FSPD Training Staff.

**Please note that some volunteer opportunities are only for those 21 years or older.  A waiver of liability must be completed before the event.  Volunteers must not be convicted of a felony or some midsdemeanor offense.  A background check may be conducted to verify eligibilty to volunteer.  The Fort Smith Police Department and The City of Fort Smith reserves the right to refuse or ban an individual from volunteering for any reason.
