County Of Sonoma
Santa Rosa, CA Full-time
Posted on August 30, 2019


The Supervised Adult Crew (SAC) Program is a detention alternative program whereby adult offenders complete jail terms by working on crews throughout the community, and facilitates weekend crews for juvenile probation youth. By working on projects throughout the community and completing government and non-profit projects, program participants build a sense of community, learn work skills, and enhance their community.

As a Probation Work Crew Supervisor, you will be responsible for carrying out assigned maintenance, landscape, construction, and industrial production projects; timeframe estimates; and acting as a Probation Department representative. Assigned projects vary based on project specifications and/or building codes, individual expertise, crew composition, and if the use of skilled workers and project managers is required.

Ideal candidates will possess a combination of the following:
  • Supervisory experience managing a diverse group of people
  • Experience ensuring OSHA compliance
  • Coursework and/or experience in project management
  • Corrections experience, working directly with offenders
  • Experience towing trailers, operating small equipment, and using power and hand tools
  • Journey-level experience in one or more skilled trades such as carpentry, plumbing, masonry, electrical, general engineering, or landscaping
  • Ability to work on Saturdays and Sundays

Extra-help employees relieve or augment permanent staff. Intermittent, extra-help employees are not in the classified civil service and do not have property rights to permanently allocated positions. In addition, they do not receive most regular employee benefits such as: long-term disability insurance coverage; accrual of vacation; participation in the County retirement program; or eligibility to take promotional examinations. Intermittent, extra-help employees are limited in their employment to a maximum of 1,380 hours within any twelve month consecutive period. Extra-help employees who meet the eligibility requirements may qualify for a County contribution toward medical coverage.

This recruitment is being conducted to fill multiple, intermittent extra-help openings in the Probation Department Supervised Adult Crew Division.
