Jail Standards Graduation
Faulkner County Detention Center recently held a Jail Standards class consisting of six of our Detention Officers. When new Detention Officers are hired with the department, they complete a Detention Officer Training Program, which lasts for 6 weeks. Following successful completion of that course, they receive on-the-job training before beginning the Jail Standards course, which is 56 hours long. A special graduation ceremony was held for these six Detention Officers on January 19, 2023. Congratulations on successful completion of this next step in your careers, Corporal Nashayla Lovelace & Detention Officers Christian Baldazo, Mar'Kayla Odom, Laura Phillips, Korban Wise, & Tyler Rogers. We are proud to have you as members of our team!
