The Faulkner County Sheriff is very supportive of the Reserve Deputy Program and has appointed a full time deputy as a Liaison.  The Reserve Commander is Brian Tyner, who currently heads up the Reserve Deputy program. 

Faulkner County is fortunate to have a group of 30 dedicated men and women in our Reserve Deputy Program.  Our Reserve Deputies are highly trained, and they volunteer over 10,000 hours of their time to the Sheriff’s Office each year. 

The Faulkner County Reserve Deputies assist the Sheriff’s Office in many capacities. Those include:

  • Prisoner transports and extraditions
  • Patrolling with or under the supervision of full time deputies
  • Serving as Bailiffs in the various courts
  • Providing security, crowd control, and similar functions at many public events
  • Many other duties related to all aspects of the Sheriff’s Office responsibilities.

It would be impossible for the Sheriff’s Office to satisfactorily and efficiently perform all the duties and provide all the services it does without our Reserve Deputies.  They are an extremely valuable part of the team.

The Reserve Deputy Program hosts a Auxiliary/Reserve Deputy Training Class 1-2 times per year. Interested candidates can follow our press releases and social media posts for application deadlines and training class information. Once the candidates have graduated, they are a Certified Auxiliary/Part-Time and Reserve Law Enforcement Officer for the State of Arkansas.
