Apr 10, 2013
The Police Benevolent Foundation, Inc. and the Arkansas Division of the Southern States PBA are in mourning for one of their own and rallying behind the family of Faulkner County Sheriff’s Deputy Hans Fifer. Deputy Fifer suffered a fatal heart attack after completing a SWAT training program. Fifer complained of shortness of breath after completing a physical activity program that consisted of running, jumping and pushups. The shortness of breath turned into chest pains and he later collapsed. Deputy Fifer was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Hans Fifer was a true hero and will be missed by all that knew him.
