Faith & Blue Weekend 2021
Faulkner County Sheriff's Office appreciates your support and participation during Faith & Blue Weekend 2021!
National Faith & Blue Weekend is a powerful national initiative aimed at building bridges to strengthen communities. At the heart of this initiative is the reinforcement of connections between law enforcement professionals and the communities they serve through the reach of houses of worship. Each year, thousands of events take place around the country during National Faith & Blue Weekend. This year, Faulkner County Sheriff's Office was pleased to host the following five events:
1) University of Central Arkansas Student Mock Interviews: Deputies conducted initial interviews, conducted secondary call-back interviews, and provided feedback to all students who participated in this mutually beneficial event on October 7, 2021.
2) Arkansas Blood Institute's Blood Drive on the Bloodmobile: The blood drive on October 8, 2021 was extremely successful, and we were able to exceed our quota for this drive according to the Arkansas Blood Institute. All participants received a free Vein Drain T-shirt and entry into the Little Rock Zoo.
3) Pinnacle Hearing's Hearing Wellness Challenge: Pinnacle Hearing provided Hearing Tests free of charge to all participants on October 9, 2021, and each participant was able to leave with results and a free large drink mug.
4) "Sheriff in Concert": Faulkner County Sheriff Tim Ryals put on an incredible gospel music show with his guitar and vocals on October 10, 2021. Deputies provided grilled hot dogs, chips, and drinks to all of the participants.
5) Conway Regional Health System's COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic: The vaccine clinic on October 11, 2021 was a huge success with individuals able to receive first, second, and booster shots of the Pfizer vaccine.
Special thanks to our partners who helped make these events successful: Conway Police Department, Conway Missionary Baptist Church, Conway Central Church, & Robinson and Center Church Of Christ.
