SHERIFF'S LAW ENFORCEMENT


DESCRIPTION

Positions allocable to this class work under the technical and administrative supervision of a Sergeant or higher - level peace officer. Some positions report to civilian managers who provide administrative supervision. Incumbents are assigned to fixed posts or designated patrol areas throughout the unincorporated area of the County and in contract cities and perform either: (1) inmate custody work at a correctional facility; security and support services at a court facility; or (2) law enforcement work at a Sheriff's patrol station, specialized unit, or other non-custodial assignment. Incumbents perform progressively responsible and diverse law enforcement duties such as supervising, observing, guarding, and transporting inmates; serving civil and criminal process; securing and maintaining order within courtrooms; patrolling an assigned area in a patrol car; investigating, preventing and suppressing crime; and apprehending public offenders. Incumbents may rotate through a variety of job assignments along planned career development lines to broaden skill and expertise in general law enforcement work and enable prompt deployment of trained personnel in response to the changing needs and priorities of the community. Positions in this class must exercise a working knowledge of law enforcement such as penal, evidence and vehicle codes; criminal investigation; patrol and custody procedures; juvenile laws; administration of justice; and community-law enforcement relations. Incumbents in these assignments must independently exercise judgment in interpreting and applying departmentally-approved methods in emergency situations involving danger to life and property.

Also allocable to this class are positions performing specialized and highly specialized law enforcement assignments. Positions performing specialized assignments such as a training officer, watch deputy, investigator, etc., are required to exercise a complete knowledge of the functions and responsibilities of their assigned unit, with sufficient ability to impart this knowledge to others. Specialized assignments, such as media or international liaison, are highly sensitive requiring incumbents to possess a thorough knowledge of the department's organization and operational policies and procedures as well as the ability to communicate effectively with a wide variety of individuals and groups. Highly specialized assignments such as commercial crimes, major crimes, homicide, emergency services, or arson initially require extensive training and technical skill. Incumbents are required to maintain proficiency and stay abreast of developments in their particular area of expertise.

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 being rejected, regardless of the nature or reason for the misstatements/omissions. In fact, the number one reason individuals “fail” background investigations are because they deliberately withhold or misrepresent job-relevant information from their prospective employer.


BOTTOM LINE: You are responsible for providing complete, accurate, and truthful responses.
