Patrol Division

Patrol deputies are responsible for answering and handling all complaint calls, calls for service, or assistance from members of the public dispatched via the Faulkner County Emergency Communications Center. They are responsible for patrolling all county roads and providing a visible presence as a proactive measure to help deter crime. Deputies patrol and enforce state laws and county ordinances throughout all areas of Faulkner County. Faulkner County is divided into four (4) rural patrol zones, with daily zone assignments being made by the shift supervisor. Deputies respond to complaint calls, crimes in progress, take reports, serve warrants, investigate accidents on county roads, and perform a wide array of related duties. They also provide assistance to other law enforcement agencies in Faulkner County and surrounding areas when called on. Sheriff's Deputies have concurrent criminal jurisdiction throughout both the incorporated and unincorporated areas of the County with Constables and Municipal police officers.

Deputies within the Patrol Division are supplemented by part-time and reserve deputies as needed and when available. Two shifts maintain 24 hour a day patrol protection. In addition to their primary duties, deputies also fulfill other requests such as extra patrol requests for those citizens who are away from home for an extended period of time as well as victims of residential burglaries or the elderly who live alone.
