Essential functions are fundamental, core functions common to all positions in the class series and are not intended to be an exhaustive list of all job duties for any one position in the class.

Grace Period: The job requirements for Correctional Lieutenant, Correctional Staff Lieutenant, and Correctional Captain changed effective September 13, 2018. However, to allow for a fair transition to the new requirements, those employees who were hired prior to September 13, 2018 and would have satisfied the previous requirements, will be evaluated according to the previous requirements for a two year grace period; from September 13, 2018 through September 13, 2020. As of September 14, 2020, the grace period will end for employees hired before September 13, 2018 and they will no longer be eligible for promotion unless they meet the new job requirements and promotional standards for said classes.
