Operating as usual
Fort Smith Police Department
The Fort Smith Police Department is excited to welcome a team of 2020 Census Enumerators who will be arriving in our area over the next few days. These individuals will be in plainclothes and have photo ID badges. They will be carrying government-issued iPads. Their purpose is to get as accurate of a population count as possible. An accurate count helps Fort Smith obtain the vital federal funding critical to long-term planning and essential community services. So if you see these individuals in our community, don’t be alarmed. Welcome them to our city, participate if you haven’t already, and should you have any questions or concerns, reach out to us at 479-709-5100. You count, Fort Smith!
A rushed census in the midst of a pandemic cuts short our efforts to ensure children under five, people of color, rural residents, low-income people, and people experiencing homelessness count. This will skew Congressional representation, redistricting, and critical funding for every state in the country, including Arkansas.
NOW IS THE TIME TO MAKE OURSELVES AND OUR LOVED ONES COUNT!
