Several thousand applicants are expected as San Diego County Sheriff’s Department begins its recruitment drive.
“It’s a demanding job, requires a lot of mental and physical strength and acuity,” said Capt. Edward Musgrove with the SDSO Personnel Division.
The positions are entry-level deputies but they are not all sworn positions like those members of the public often see out on patrol.
The department is actively hiring non-sworn positions like financial specialists, IT, nurses, dispatchers and other key positions within the department.
Those interested in applying for a job with the department should go to the website from now until Feb. 10 and schedule a written exam.
Anyone currently in the military should apply 6 months prior to his or her estimated End of Active Service.
