SCSO Plan of Operation for Historic Flooding


On Tuesday afternoon Captain Phillip Pevehouse with the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office stated that their office has a plan in place to continue serving and protecting the citizens.

​Pevehouse added that marked patrol units are going to keep a constant and consistent presence in the Lavaca/Central City area.  Also, that marked patrol units will be in the flooded areas of Fort Smith assisting the Fort Smith Police Department as well as assisting with large traffic counts on roadways because of detours.  

​Sheriff Runion has asked for the assistance of
Arkansas Game & Fish Commission.  They will support the emergency
operations in Sebastian County by providing extra patrol units, watercraft, and
any other assigned tasks.  

​Pevehouse said, “SCSO CID has been put on standby to assist FSPD should the need arise for additional investigators as FSPD resources have been stretched thin due to the flooding. ​Of course SCSO will continue to provide law enforcement response to the rest of Sebastian County as well.”
