There is no greater calling than the one to serve others. If you are an individual who is looking to work in the service of a grateful community and can meet the challenge of critically thinking through high stress situations, then the City of Bella Vista Fire and EMS Department wants you.Firefighter

We serve over 30,000 residents on 48/96 shifts, and operate four full-time fire stations, three engine companies, one ladder, two rescue trucks, six ALS ambulances and multiple highly trained technical rescue teams, including ropes, swift water and diving.

We are a progressive and ever-growing department set in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, with 100 miles of first-class mountain biking trails, seven lakes and countless outdoor amenities that make for the perfect office space. Come see for yourself.
police k9The Bella Vista Police Department offers its officers many opportunities in our city of nearly 35,000 residents — from a mountain bike team to a motorcycle unit, crisis negotiators to K9s. BVPD has something to offer all those wanting to serve this community at a higher level.

We strive to put a focus on community first. Our officers patrol to deter crime, rather than take a reactive-only response, and are encouraged to focus on creating partnerships within the community to identify problems early and work together on solutions.

We are looking for those who want to inspire change and growth through positive interactions and relationships.  If that is you, and you exhibit the integrity, teamwork, and leadership skills needed to earn the right to proudly wear the Bella Vista Police Department badge, we encourage you to review our qualification information and apply.

Money is good, yes, but we also offer some other really great benefits, including a two-to-one employer match for retirement (available to non-uniformed employees). Medical, dental, vision, paid vacation, holiday pay, paid sick leave and more. Find your fit here in our city.

All candidates who are made an offer of employment will be required to pass a drug screen.
