The Smithfield Police Department has created its first ever public relations & recruitment video. According to Chief Richard P. St.Sauveur, Jr., “this video is intended to provide our residents and business owners with a snapshot of who we are and what we do, while also affording those with an interest in a law enforcement career with a glimpse of one of the best police agencies in New England.”
The concept behind this project originated during last year’s development of annual and multi-year goals & objectives. While such videos are not unique, this video emphasizes the department’s focus on training and community-based activities. It also highlights specialized assignments available within the agency. And thanks to the efforts of Sergeant Orlando Braxton, this video cost nothing. We hope viewers enjoy this video and that potential police officer applicants see what a wonderful town and police department we have.
On August 13, 2021 the Smithfield Police Department hosted its Community Police Night Out from 5pm-8pm at the Smithfield High School.

The Community Police Night Out was able to raise approximately $1,200. The $1,200 is going to be donated to the ALS Association of Rhode Island in the memory of former Smithfield Police dispatcher Cheryl Corsa-Crook.
