National Correctional Officers Week: Thank You, Detention Officers!


To close out National Correctional Officers Week, Sheriff Ryals and all of us at Faulkner County Sheriff's Office wanted to take a moment to recognize our amazing Detention Officers once again. While the community rarely sees these individuals as they are working tirelessly behind the walls of the Faulkner County Detention Center, we know how dedicated and caring each and every one of them are. We appreciate all of the individuals and businesses that have helped us to make this week special for these hardworking individuals! We are proud to have each of these individuals holding the Thin Gray Line as members of our team!

If you are interested in joining the Thin Gray Line, we are currently hiring for both part-time and full-time Detention Officers! Sheriff Ryals prides himself on hiring in-house from the Faulkner County Detention Center whenever open patrol positions are available. As a result, this is both a great career opportunity itself if you are interested in pursuing a career in corrections, and it is a great way to get your foot in the door if you are interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement.

Candidates interested in positions with the Faulkner County Detention Center should be 18 years of age, possess a high school diploma or equivalent, have a valid Arkansas driver's license, be able to successfully complete a background check, and have a positive work ethic and attitude.

The new 2023 starting salary for full-time detention officers at the Faulkner County Detention Center is $37,960 annually. Benefits include the following: paid medical, dental, and vision insurance; vacation, sick, and holiday time; APERS retirement after five years of service; a family working atmosphere; equal opportunity to excel; and administration with an open-door policy for all employees.
