While on-duty, members of the Blytheville Police Department’s Auxiliary Police Force can exercise the same authority and have legal protection afforded full time sworn police officers.
The members of the Blytheville Police Department’s Auxiliary Police Force are selected in the same manner as are full time police officers.
