Summer is Here!


As we approach summer, the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office is preparing for one of the busiest times of the year. With more people outdoors and participating in activities, it is important that we take precautions to ensure the safety of our community.

Congratulations to all area graduates - we wish you the best in your future, whether away at college, starting a career, or somewhere in between!

Please be sure to prioritize safety and responsibility during this season of relaxation and fun. Whether you are hiking, swimming, enjoying a neighborhood barbecue or just spending time with family and friends, please be mindful of your surroundings and take steps to avoid accidents or injury.

Due to increased outdoor activities and travel during summer, remind all drivers in your family to follow traffic laws and never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Please ensure everyone traveling in the vehicle is wearing their seat belt and it is properly buckled.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has the following tips for a healthy summer:

  • Eat healthy food to support muscles, strengthen bones, and boost immunity.
  • Drink water instead of sugary or alcoholic drinks.
  • Participate in at least 150 minutes of physical activity a week.
  • Stay cool, hydrated, and informed about extreme heat in the area.
  • Wear sunscreen (SPF of at least 15) and insect repellent.
  • Practice water safety.

All of us at the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office wishes everyone a happy, safe, and healthy start to the summer season.
