A Court Security Deputy has a two year commitment of service as a Court Security Deputy (CSD). If the employee decides to pursue a career change to the position of Deputy Sheriff, he/she requests permission to the Human Resources Director via the chain of command to apply for Deputy Sheriff in Uniform Patrol. The request can be submitted as early as 18 months of employment. Once written approval is received by Human Resources Division, Recruiting and Background Section completes an abbreviated selection process (updated background). The file is reviewed by the Sheriff for a conditional offer of employment as a Deputy Sheriff in Uniform Patrol. Once a conditional offer of employment has been received, a medical exam and psychological evaluation are scheduled. After medical and psychological clearances are received, the employee is reclassified for the next certified hire date after completion of the two year CSD commitment of service.
The position as a CSD does not guarantee that the request for a career change will be approved.
CSD's shall not be authorized to work off-duty in a sworn capacity.
