FCSO Hosts Advanced TCCC
Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office recently held an Advanced Tactical Casualty Care Course for Faulkner County Sheriff’s Deputies and members of our STRIIK Team. In collaboration with Pafford Emergency Medical Services, the STRIIK Team is a high-level medically trained tactical unit that is attached to the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office Special Response Team. STRIIK Team Members complete a rigorous training program consisting of both online training, residential training, and practical exercises with the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office to become a certified Auxiliary/Part Time Law Enforcement Officer in the State of Arkansas. The STRIIK Team provides an elite level of medical care and tactics for our deputies as well as the community they serve under high-risk scenarios.
This year, Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office was pleased to partner with the University of Central Arkansas Department of Sociology, Criminology, and Anthropology. Students enrolled in criminal justice courses at the university acted as role-players for the active shooter scenarios. The students played the role of victims, allowing deputies and STRIIK Team Members to triage them and provide medical care to them. Students were also able to debrief officers on their perspective of response tactics. This provides an excellent, yet fun, field training activity for both members of our STRIIK Team, Faulkner County Sheriff’s Deputies, and criminal justice students interested in pursuing future careers in law enforcement.
Instructing the multi-day extensive training this year on behalf of Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office and Pafford Medical Services was Micah Piker, Todd Aitken, Doug Welter, Rick Stapleton, John House, and Training Commander Landon Rappold.
Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office values our partnerships with the community members and organizations we serve. We appreciate the willingness of students to volunteer their time, and we remain thankful for our continued partnership with Pafford Medical Services.
