A career as a Custody Deputy, Sheriff’s Deputy or Sheriff’s Service Technician is exciting, challenging and rewarding with the opportunity to work a variety of assignments and a chance to develop and advance.  We are looking for quality candidates to join our ranks who want to make a difference and believe they have what it takes to succeed. All career paths require individuals who have great moral character, strong interpersonal skills, the ability to handle stress, good judgement and a sound work ethic among other skill sets.
