This is part time work as a Deputy Sheriff. The fundamental reason that the Deputy Sheriff classification exists is to perform general duty police work in the protection of life and property through crime prevention and the enforcement of laws and ordinances. A Deputy Sheriff's duties range from periods of physical inactivity to situations requiring extreme physical exertion and may involve an element of danger. Employees must be able to act without immediate supervision and exercise independent judgment in meeting emergencies. Specific work assignments are made by a Deputy Sheriff Sergeant or other supervisor and performance is checked through personal inspections, and review of oral and written reports. Major job responsibilities for Deputy Sheriffs are based upon assignment which may include all or some of the following: interviewing witnesses; serving warrants and/or arresting and taking individuals into custody; completing forms, reports and other paperwork; maintaining equipment; preparing for and testifying in court; performing outreach and public relations activities; engaging in self-development and training; patrolling County roads and neighborhoods; responding to vehicle code violations; responding to traffic accidents; responding to reports of criminal activity; responding to incidents involving juveniles or minors; responding to life-threatening or disaster-level emergencies; investigating traffic accidents; securing crime scenes; collecting, maintaining and evaluating evidence; investigating crimes; conducting covert investigations; maintaining the security of the courthouse and/or probate court; training probationary deputies; serving civil papers; transporting mental patients, juveniles and prisoners; and performing station desk duties.
