Inmate Grievance/Disciplinary Clerk

Recruitment #18-CO0454-01

Nature of Work

The fundamental reason that this position exists is to process the paperwork related to inmate grievances and discipline.  The clerks’ major work functions include gathering information, processing information, making determinations, and performing general clerical duties.  The incumbents in this classification usually focus on either grievances or disciplinary; however, the incumbents are trained to work in both areas as back-up and support.  The Inmate Grievance/Disciplinary Clerk classification differs from other clerical classifications in that the position requires the clerk to interview individuals and make decisions based on the investigation of incidents.  Although the clerk is required to gather and process the information and make determinations, the clerks’ supervisor reviews all findings prior to their release.  Work is performed under the supervision of a Corrections Officer.

Minimum Qualifications

High School diploma or GED and one year experience conducting interviews and making determinations based on the interpretation of laws and policies and the evidence and information collected.  Three college level courses in Criminal Justice or Correctional Law can be substituted for the experience. 

Kind of Examination

Applications are being accepted to fill one (1) vacancy and any vacancies that may occur during the life of the register.  The current vacancy is with the Montgomery County Detention Facility. Applicants will be screened and qualified based upon education and experience as shown on the application and minimally qualifying questionnaire.  For this reason, applicants are urged to fill in the application form and minimally qualifying questionnaire completely providing detailed information concerning the kinds of jobs they have held, the dates they held them, where and exactly what their duties were.  If more than five qualified applications are received, an exam will be administered to rank applicants on the register. Qualified applicants will receive a schedule notice approximately two weeks prior to the multiple choice exam.  Tied scores will not be broken (in accordance with Personnel Rules and Regulations, Rule VII, Section 3). If there are five or less qualified applicants, they will be considered equally qualified and placed on the register in alphabetical order.
