The Smyrna Police Department’s Community Services initiative is multifaceted and its  purpose is to promote, maintain, and build quality partnerships within the Town of Smyrna for the purpose of establishing positive and productive relationships between the police and citizens. The members of our department work with citizens, businesses, schools, houses of worship, and civic organizations within the Town of Smyrna on a consistent basis so that this mission can be accomplished. 

Our Community Services Coordinator
acts as the liaison between the police department, community groups, social service agencies, and residents. The C.S.C. is responsible for coordinating prevention, educational, and evaluative efforts related to social issues encountered by law enforcement.  Issues specifically addressed include domestic violence, child abuse, financial hardship, mental health, elder abuse, and personal safety. The C.S.C. provides resource linkage to victims, brief intervention counseling, parenting consultations, crisis debriefings, and presentations on a variety of topics including child abuse, domestic violence, and internet safety. 

Citizens' Police Academy will provide participants with an opportunity to gain a broad perspective of the police profession. The 12 week Academy is designed to give citizens an overview of the department's functions and procedures, while providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and concerns relating to the community.

Active Shooter Program
Active shooter events and workplace violence have become all too commonplace across this nation.
Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, Fort Hood and the theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado are events we all remember that ended with numerous innocent people murdered or injured.
The Smyrna Police Department has trained our officers to respond and manage these types of events and we are prepared to react.  However, these events are random and there is no way to predict when or where it may occur.
