Correctional Deputy I - $4,279 - $5,200 Monthly

The challenges you face as a Correctional Deputy will provide you with a rewarding sense of purpose and fulfillment. The supervision of inmates is a 24/7 responsibility. Work shifts are 8, 10, or 12 hours, include weekends and holidays, and new Deputies must have the flexibility to work all shifts (days, swings, graves). Overtime is a requirement for Correctional Deputies. With experience and seniority, opportunities to select different work shifts and/or specialty assignments become available. There are also a variety of specialty assignments available in the Sheriff's Office, assigned on a "most qualified" basis, which may be entitled to premium pay. 

As a Correctional Deputy I you will receive thorough training, close oversight, and the mentorship of experienced Deputies. The Sonoma County Sheriff's Office training program provides exposure to a variety of correctional functions, including inmate booking, general population security, protective custody, and the medical withdrawal and mental health units. To excel in these training areas, you must have the ability to exercise quick and sound judgment, patience, and be able to work effectively in sometimes stressful situations. After one year, Correctional Deputy I's are expected to possess the knowledge and abilities required for promotion to Correctional Deputy II. The Correctional Deputy II position pays up to $79,665 a year, not including overtime.
