Once a candidate is recommended for hire by the Human Resources team, they will be scheduled for a final interview with the Human Resources Director and Sheriff Jay Koon. These interviews are back-to-back; if the Sheriff chooses to extend an offer of employment, the candidate will be asked to meet with HR personnel to select a start date of employment.

Following an offer, an applicant will be scheduled for a pre-employment drug test and physical to be conducted before their start date. An offer of employment is contingent upon satisfactory results of the pre-employment drug test and physical examination.



Candidates should expect to schedule approximately two hours for this step.


The pre-employment drug tests and physicals are conducted by a licensed physician contracted by the Sheriff’s Department.
