We investigate the consistency of linearized equations of motion for higher spins in general backgrounds. We find a class of domain wall geometries for which the field equations are consistent. A member of this class is a 'thick" brane, a smooth description of the Randall-Sundrum geometry. We discuss higher spins in this setting.
