Sheriff's Office location serves as safe meeting place
The Faulkner County Sheriff's Office invites anyone who makes a purchase via Craigslist, Facebook, etc. to use the front parking lot or lobby at the Sheriff's Office.
There are plenty of stories on the internet regarding Craigslist purchases gone bad. Faulkner County has multiple Facebook groups set up to sell, buy, and trade goods as well. Unfortunately there are subjects around looking to take advantage of good people. In the spirit of crime prevention, we encourage our citizens to use our facility as a meeting place.
The Faulkner County Sheriff's Office business hours are Monday-Friday, 8:00am-4:30pm. The front lobby is always open, and Faulkner County Detention Officers are in the building, if something were to go wrong with the interaction. Should there be disagreement in the details surrounding the purchase, the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office will not become involved in the interaction, as it is a civil matter.
