The Placer County Sheriff's Office is seeking applications for Deputy Sheriff - I.

The Sheriff's Office also highly values those with a positive attitude toward fellow workers and the community they will be serving.
In order to be eligible for this recruitment, applicants must have completed the California POST-Certified Regular Basic Course OR must submit verification of current enrollment in a California POST Basic Academy/Module I course with an expected graduation date within 6 months of the application submission date.

This is the entry level class in the sworn Deputy Sheriff series. This class is distinguished from the journey level by the performance of the more routine tasks and duties assigned to positions within this series. Employees at this level are not expected to perform with the same independence of direction and judgement on matters allocated to the journey level. Since this class is used as a training class, employees may have only limited or no directly related work experience. Employees work under immediate supervision while learning job tasks.
Progression from this class is dependent upon continuing acquisition and development of knowledge, techniques and skills in law enforcement work. This class is distinguished from Deputy Sheriff Trainee in that the Trainee is a training class for incumbents who have not completed the California POST Basic Academy.
