Special Response Team – Dicky Johnson (501) 682-9566


The Special Response Team (SRT) may work alone or with local, state, or federal law enforcement agencies aggressively searching for those fugitives/absconders who pose a danger to public safety. Once located and arrested, post-release supervision offenders/fugitives are transported to a jail facility in the state.
The SRT has officers for conducting undercover field operations and one officer who is assigned to the Arkansas State Fusion Center under the Arkansas State Police as an Intelligence Analyst. In addition to being full certified police officers with the state of Arkansas, many of these officers have been trained and certified as Federal Officers under Title 18 USC with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), United States Marshal Service (USMS) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
The SRT works with these federal agencies to conduct investigations and secure federal indictments on active post-release supervision offenders, probationers, absconders, and others as the situation dictates.
