The Sheriff's Office is currently seeking applications for Correctional Officer - I. Positions may be assigned to either the Auburn Jail Facility or the South Placer Jail Facility.
Qualified applicants will undergo an extensive background investigation to determine if they meet the high standards set by the Sheriff's Office in the areas including, but not limited to: high moral character, honesty, and exemplary work ethic. The Sheriff's Office also highly values those with a positive attitude toward fellow workers and the community they will be serving.
Under general supervision, maintain security and ensure inmate welfare in a County jail; oversee jail activities and facilities during an assigned shift; perform related work as assigned.
This is the entry level class in the Correctional Officer series. This class is distinguished from the journey 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 judgment on matters allocated to the journey level. Since this class is typically 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.
It is the applicant's responsibility to identify in their application materials how they meet the Minimum Qualifications listed below.
Experience: No direct experience is required. Experience involving either the control and custody of incarcerated individuals or in a law enforcement support setting are desirable.
Training: Completion of twelfth grade or G.E.D., College level coursework in law enforcement or a related field is preferred.
License or Certificate:
Performance Examination (Pass/Fail)
The performance examination will consist of a series of job-related physical agility exercises.
Written Examination (100%)
The written examination may include multiple choice, true/false, fill-in, matching, and/or essay type questions directly related to the required knowledge and abilities for this classification.
Note: We will be administering the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) Adult Corrections Officer Examination. To locate the Candidate Orientation Booklet for this examination, which includes example questions, click here.
Note: If you took the BSCC Adult Corrections Officer Examination within the last 6 months (of application submission date) with another agency, we will accept your transferred T-score, and you will not be required to take the written examination.
In order to transfer your T-score, you must provide your official BSCC Adult Corrections Officer written examination score report (including examination title, examination date, and T-score) on official letterhead from the agency. Please upload this score report as an attachment to your application, fax it to (530) 889-4078, or email it directly to Lindsay Killian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prior to the date of hire, applicants for this classification must complete and pass a background check (which may include a voice stress analysis and/or a polygraph) and pre-employment psychological and medical examinations, including a drug screening, prior to appointment. All applicants must sign a constitutional oath, submit proof of U.S. citizenship or legal right to remain and work in the U.S., and be fingerprinted. For some positions, applicants may also be required to submit proof of age or be bonded.
All new permanent employees, with the exception of sworn law enforcement and those in management and confidential groups, shall be required to join the employee organization or pay an 'Agency Fee' as a condition of employment.
The eligible list(s) resulting from this recruitment may be certified as a substitute list for a substantially similar classification. For this purpose, a substantially similar classification is one at a lower level in the same classification (example: entry level vs. journey) and/or a similar classification (similar work performed, similar training and experience qualifications required). If you are contacted for an interview by a County department, you will be informed of the classification and other relevant information. If you choose not to interview for a substantially similar classification, you will remain on the eligible list for which you originally applied.
Placer County offers an expedited process for qualifying certain applicants for interviews. Candidates currently employed, or employed within the last year, by a public agency operating under a personnel civil service or merit system may be eligible to be placed on a Public Agency Eligible List and certified as eligible for appointment to a similar job assignment without going through the examination process.
