FCSO Introduces New STRIIK Team
With the support of Pafford Emergency Medical Services, Faulkner County Sheriff's Office is pleased to introduce the community to the new STRIIK Team, led by Commander Sean Mahanay. The STRIIK Team is a high-level medically trained tactical unit that will be attached to the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office Special Response Team. The STRIIK Team members have completed a rigorous training program consisting of both online training, residential training, and practical exercises with the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office to become certified auxiliary law enforcement officers in the State of Arkansas. This training consisted of criminal law, traffic law, accident investigation, defensive tactics, traffic stops, and weapons qualifications. These new officers are providing an elite level of medical care and tactics for our deputies as well as the community they serve under high-risk scenarios such as active shooters. They have worked extremely hard to achieve their badge and become Faulkner County Sheriff's Deputies.
We would like to thank Gravitas Martial Arts for allowing this new team to train with the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office Reserve Unit at their wonderful facility. We would also like to thank Pafford Emergency Medical Services for working with us to make this advanced medical unit possible.
Faulkner County Sheriff's Office is proud to introduce the community to our new STRIIK Team: Doug Welter, Dakota Weger, Rick Stapleton, Micah Piker, Austin McGee, Jon House, Logan Hinkle, Randel Green, & Todd Aitken. In the coming posts, we will be introducing each of these new team members to the community individually!
