On the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, please take a moment today to pause to remember the events of that tragic day, as well as honor the victims and the heroism of first responders.

This Office was made aware this last weekend of a post on Facebook by someone who represented themselves to be an employee of the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office. The post was derogatory, insensitive, and controversial. The Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office has been a leader in Arkansas in the fight against opiod abuse. Sheriff Hollenbeck has been at the forefront leading to the creation of an Opiod Abuse Taskforce in Sebastian County. Recently, Narcan training took place in Sebastian County with 180 law enforcement officers attending. These officers represented 12 different agencies in Sebastian County. 97 of the officers were from SCSO. The person who made this post is not an employee of this Office. The post in no way represents the values, ethics, or moral stance of Sheriff Hollenbeck or the many fine deputies who work tirelessly each day to serve and protect the citizens of Sebastian County. We appreciate the concerned citizens who made us aware of this post made in poor taste. The person has since changed their profile as they do not represent SCSO.

We are now accepting applications from any citizens who would like to participate in the class and does not live or work in Sebastian County. Anyone interested must have their application turned in by Monday, September 10th. Please call Linda Williams 479-783-1051 to receive an application.

Sebastian County Law Enforcement Narcan Training Captain P Pevehouse Over the course of the last week, SCSO hosted Narcan Training for Sebastian County Law Enforcement. Narcan (naloxone) is a lifesaving medication which can be administered to those who are suffering from an overdose of opiods. The course was a certification process for law enforcement personnel to be able to carry and administer the medication to reverse the effects of an overdose. This is a statewide initiative. 180 officers and deputies were trained in the administration of the medication. These 180 represented 12 different agencies in Sebastian County. Of the total number 97 were deputies of SCSO. The Criminal Justice Institute provided the training and the medication carry kits. The hope is to get more and more law enforcement officers into the program and certified. The training was held at the Wingate Building at UAFS. To date in 2018, 122 lives have been reported saved in Arkansas by the administration of Narcan. Requirements for law enforcement agencies to participate in the program are for the department to adopt a Narcan policy and update their officers CPR training as well as attend the training sessions.

The Sebastian County Sheriff's Office is offering a Citizens Academy to residents 18 and older who work or reside in Sebastian County, that are interested in learning more about law enforcement operations and the Sebastian County Sheriff's Office internal processes. The classes will start on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 6:00 pm. The basic goal of the Citizens Academy is to improve law enforcement/community relations through a formalized educational process. The Citizens Academy will present a wide range of topical training subjects condensed from the standard training curriculum of sheriff's deputies. By presenting this program, we hope to provide a broad educational experience which will acquaint attending citizens with the mission of sheriff's personnel and the requirements of law to which officers must conform while carrying out their prescribed duties. Through attendance and participation in the Citizens Academy: •Citizens will be able to make more informed judgments about the Sheriff's Office and law enforcement activities. •The Sheriff's Office will become more aware of the feelings and concerns of the community, as expressed by attending citizens. •Citizens and Sheriff's representatives will have an opportunity to explore together, some of the traditional suspicions and misconceptions generally harbored by both citizens and sheriff's deputies. Through open discussion of such suspicions and misconceptions, a more harmonious climate for relationships may be established. The Academy will consist of 8 weeks of sessions that meet once a week, on Thursday evenings, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Each week will feature a different aspect of the Sheriff's Office, including tours of the adult and juvenile detention facilities, 9-1-1 Center, Courts Building, demonstrations by the SWAT team and K-9 unit, and many hands-on classes such as CSI, taser, and Shoot-Don't-Shoot scenarios. Additonally, participants will also have a day at the range with our SWAT team. The classes will be held at the Sebastian County Sheriff's Office, located at 800 South A. Street Fort Smith, AR 2901, in the training classroom. Interested candidates are asked to complete an application and background check to determine if they are eligible for the program. 20 participants will be chosen that will represent a cross-section of the Sebastian County community. For an application or for more information about the Sebastian County Sheriff's Office Citizens Academy, contact Linda Williams, 479-783-1051 or by Email: Deadline for all applications to be considered for this year's academy is August 31, 2018.

Good luck to former SCSO intern and Reserve Deputy, Ian Brecht, on his new endeavors as adventures in Texas. You were one of the BEST interns our department has ever had. We will miss…

The Sebastian County Sheriff would like to warn people about an old scam that seems to recently resurface. The department is receiving calls from citizens that someone who claims to be a deputy from the Sheriff's Office is trying to collect payments for fines. If the citizen doesnt agree to pay, the scammer is threatening to have a warrant sent for their arrest. The most recent phone scam is someone posing as a Deputy Davis and calling from 479-689-7664. However, multiple names, ranks and numbers may be used to trick citizens into sending money. Sheriff's office investigators have called this number and have received a voicemail that mimics the same message we have on our office telephone number, even stating to call 9-1-1 if it is an emergency. THIS IS A TRICK!!! The sheriff’s office will never ask people for money over the phone. If you have a question about a fine or a call you have received, please call us at 479-783-1051.
