New Jail Administrator
Faulkner County Sheriff's Office is pleased to announce the promotion of Scott Huffman to Captain and Jail Administrator of Faulkner County Detention Center.
Captain Huffman has been with the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office Detention Center for over ten years. Prior to joining FCSO, he served in the United States Army for over 23 years and completed two tours of combat in Iraq with the Arkansas National Guard. While in the Army, he served as an instructor for seven years and worked in a leadership capacity for all but two of his twenty three years of service. He attended numerous schools and courses on leadership. He also served as a Platoon Sergeant and Platoon Leader in combat operations where he had great responsibility. In 2010 he retired as Sergeant First Class with many awards including the Bronze Star.
After retiring, he missed the brotherhood and structure of military life and chose a career in law enforcement. He started as a part-time detention officer in 2011, and, after five months, moved into a full time position in Booking. A few months later, he was promoted to Classification Corporal followed by a promotion to Corporal in Unit Two Housing seven months later. Soon after, Captain Huffman was promoted to Sergeant at Unit One, and two years later, he was promoted to Lieutenant. In 2016, he transferred to Unit Two as Lieutenant of Housing. Along with his other responsibilities, he undertook overseeing the Maintenance Department for the Sheriff's Office, and, in the role of Operations Officers, was responsible for all of the logistics in both detention centers. Captain Huffman was also responsible for kitchen operations for both facilities and is certified by the National Restaurant Association. Since working in the jail, he has learned every aspect of corrections and detention and has applied himself to learn the myriad of detailed skills to successfully operate a facility. Over the last ten years, Captain Huffman has been a supervisor in every department of the jail and knows how each department should be run according to policy, state and federal law, and jail standards.
Outside of work, Captain Huffman is an avid outdoors man who loves to hunt and fish. He is married with three children, has one granddaughter, and has a grandson on the way.
