ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

DUAL TRACK CAREER PATH
The Dual Track Career Path program was developed by the Los Santos County Sheriff's Department to enhance continuity, stability, and accountability in the Los Santos County correctional system and Patrol related functions. The Dual Track will allow sworn personnel to select, remain, and promote within their career path of choice: Custody, Patrol, or both.

Applicants' career path is not binding. Upon graduation from the Sheriff's Academy, new deputies undergo on-job training in county jail and receive an appointment as custody deputies within Custody Division. Once deputies complete their probationary period they will be afforded the opportunity to re-evaluate their career path.

Deputies who select a career path in Custody can remain and promote within Custody Division, until they change their career path. Deputies who select a career path in Patrol and become patrol certified can transfer and promote throughout the Department.

The hiring process, selection requirements, academy curriculum, and monthly entry-level salary will remain unchanged. Deputies who elect a career path in Patrol, become patrol certified, and complete the required number of years will be eligible to receive additional pay.

Disqualification

There are very few automatic bases for rejection. Even issues of prior misconduct, such as prior illegal drug use, driving under the influence, theft, or even arrest or conviction are usually not, in and of themselves, automatically disqualifying. However, deliberate misstatements or omissions can and often will result in your application beingrejected, regardless of the nature or reason for the misstatements/omissions. In fact, the number one reason individuals “fail” background investigations is because they deliberately withhold or misrepresent job-relevant information from their prospective employer.
