The Smithville Police Department currently offers several programs in which we partner with our community to help keep residents safe and informed.
Citizen's Police Academy
This academy is offered to citizens 18 years of age and older to help them become more familiar with what Police Officers encounter on a daily basis and how we work to keep the community safe. For more information and the application, click here
EyesOn-Smithville Community Watch Program
The community of Smithville has a wonderful history of working well with the Police Department to better identify areas of concern, ways to better serve our community, and finding new and different approaches to addressing crime in our neighborhoods. Many residents are installing security systems with video, doorbells with video camera capabilities and other methods of better protecting their property. When a crime occurs, residents or business owners may not be aware that their systems have recorded the incident. EyesOn Smithville is a new Voluntary Community Watch Program in Smithville, Missouri designed to house a voluntary list with the locations of video systems throughout the community.

Take Me Home Program
Take Me Home is a database developed by the Pensacola Police Department for people who may need special assistance if they are alone or in times of emergency. This kind of assistance may be required if the person is unable to speak or properly identify themselves, or if they become disoriented or act in a manner that could be misinterpreted by first responders. The system includes a current digital picture, demographic information and caregiver contacts. If a police officer encounters a person in the Take Me Home system, the officer can query the Take Me Home system, searching by name or by the person’s physical description. Once the individual’s Take Me Home record has been located, the officer has the information at hand to appropriately assist the person.
