Entry Level Sheriff's Deputy


For entry level candidates, the testing process can take anywhere from 3 to 10 months (quicker for lateral applicants) depending on several factors (e.g., applicant availability, testing and interview schedules, and available vacancies).  Currently, we have exceeded our hiring goals for the first half of 2016.  We anticipate further hiring as vacancies occur.  We suggest you still apply now via National Testing Network(NTN) in order to get a head start on the application process. Please note that NTN scores are valid for 1 year.  Laterals do not take the physical tests.
