After online applications have been submitted, qualified applicants will receive specific instructions by electronic mail regarding the procedure for self-scheduling yourself for an upcoming written examination. Please be sure that you provide a valid e-mail address on your application in order to receive this important information.
The examination process takes approximately 3-4 hours and includes meeting minimum qualifications stated above (be sure to bring your driver's license); and passing the Written Test given on the above date(s).
Electronic devices (cell phones, pagers, PDAs, cameras, etc.) are not allowed in the Courthouse. They may be secured in an adjacent building for a nominal charge.
Please note: Applicants who do not pass the written test are eligible to re-apply and may re-test after a six-month waiting period.
Character/Background Investigation & Polygraph - Applicants who pass the written test will be responsible for downloading a character/background questionnaire to complete which must be returned within a specified time period.
The background investigation will be conducted by the Sheriff's Office, after a conditional offer of employment has been made, to include a polygraph examination administered by a licensed/certified polygraph examiner. Incomplete and/or inaccurate information on the background form may be cause for rejection.
Candidates who do not successfully complete the background investigation are not normally allowed to re-apply. Background investigations require a good driving record and a clean criminal history. Candidates are unlikely to receive favorable consideration if they have engaged in activities that would support a felony conviction, have misdemeanor convictions for crimes relating to theft, domestic violence, or assault, have recent convictions for D.U.I. or D.W.I. or reckless driving, or multiple convictions for speeding or other moving violations.
During the polygraph, applicants will be questioned in the following relevant areas: accuracy of information provided on applications and related documents; honesty, integrity and reliability of the applicant; criminal and traffic history, either previously detected or undetected; and involvement with illicit drugs. All questions will be discussed with the applicant by the polygraph examiner before the test starts and the applicant will be given the opportunity to clarify any potential problem areas.
After a conditional offer of employment has been made, the following may be scheduled:
Photos, fingerprints - conducted by the Sheriff's Office
Psychological Evaluation - conducted by a licensed psychologist
Each candidate must pass each component of the examination process before continuing to the next step. It takes approximately 10-16 weeks to complete the process. After successfully completing all steps, the candidate is placed on an unranked eligible list from which all Deputy Sheriff vacancies are filled for the duration of the eligible list.
New employees are appointed as Deputy Sheriff (Grade S2) at $24.97 per hour. With satisfactory performance, employees are considered for periodic increases.
The probationary period for this position is 18 months. During probation the employee must pass all requirements of the Northern Virginia Criminal Justice Training Academy (24 week Academy) to receive certifications as a Jailer and Court Security/Civil Process Server and in law enforcement.
Note: Salary listed above is for fiscal year 2019, effective July 1, 2018.
The County offers a sign-on bonus for those candidates who successfully complete a Spanish oral proficiency exam. This examination is scheduled during the hiring process and the bonus will be paid soon after hire. After graduation from the Northern Virginia Criminal Justice Training Academy, Deputy Sheriffs who have passed the Spanish oral proficiency examination will receive language pay for all hours worked and for paid leave hours.
