6.PROOF OF LICENSING
It shall be the applicant's responsibility to provide the Human Resources Department with proof of licensing. The remaining steps in the selection process shall NOT be completed until such proof is received.
If a vacancy arises in the Sheriff's Department and proof of licensing has NOT been provided, the applicant's name shall be bypassed for that particular vacancy. The applicant shall remain on the eligibility roster at his/her rank and shall be considered for whatever vacancies become available AFTER proof of licensing has been received. Due to the time involved with completing the background investigation, psychological examination and physical, it is very important that the applicant provide proof of licensing as early as possible.
If you are already licensed or eligible to be licensed, please attach copies of letters or certificates showing that you are.
Pass/Fail. The applicant must complete an extensive background application providing information from which the applicant's background can be checked. This investigation includes, but is not limited to, such areas as personal references, fingerprint check, driving record check, credit check, education, employment history and military services, etc.
Pass/Fail. The applicant must pass a psychological evaluation arranged/approved by the Sheriff's Civil Service Commission. The purpose of this evaluation is to determine the presence of any mental or emotional condition which might adversely affect performance as a Deputy Sheriff.
Pass/Fail. Applicants must pass a rigorous medical examination as prescribed by the Sheriff's Civil Service Commission. All medical exams will be reviewed by the Commission's medical consultant and determined as pass/fail. A drug test will be given at this time.
10. COMMISSION REVIEW
Pass/Fail. Each applicant's complete file, including all the preceding steps, is reviewed. The applicant is either rejected or eligible to remain on the list to be certified to the Sheriff for possible selection.
The Sheriff is given the top seven certified names from the eligibility roster when Deputy Sheriff vacancies occur. The Sheriff selects one of the top seven to fill the vacancy. The next names on the list move up one and the top seven names are ready for consideration when the next vacancy occurs. Under Minnesota statutes, if a disparity exists between the make-up of the Sheriff's Office and its approved affirmative action goals, the commission may certify up to two eligible candidates from each protected group for which disparity exists.
