FORT SMITH- Two officers with the Fort Smith Police Department showed us recently that being a police officer is about more than just enforcing the rules. 

Last Friday, Field Training Officer Reeder and Officer Shown of the FSPD were conducting a welfare check in reference to report of children playing the street. 

When they found out what all the commotion was about, they discovered a young lady named Ja’Niya was celebrating her birthday. 

Once the officers ensured everyone was safe, they decided to stick around, help celebrate Ja’Niya’s birthday, and give out some complimentary badges! 

“All of us at FSPD would like to wish Ja’Niya a Happy Birthday,” stated the FSPD in a facebook post.
