The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce that it is now holding a continuous recruitment for the positions of custody deputy and sheriff’s deputy trainee.  

The continuous recruitment period means that applications will be accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until further notice instead of the typical set time frame given to apply.

However, to be considered for the upcoming Custody Deputy Academy, applications need to be received by June 15, 2016. Applications received after that date will be processed for the following Custody Deputy Academy.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office prides itself on having a great team of dedicated professionals who are committed to protecting and serving the citizens in its community.  

It believes in the importance of having a diverse workforce that is reflective of the community and encourages all qualified men and women of varied backgrounds, experiences and races to apply.  

This is an exciting time to join the Sheriff’s Office, which will be hiring positions to staff the recently approved Northern Branch Jail.

A career as a custody deputy or sheriff’s deputy is exciting, challenging and rewarding with the opportunity to work a variety of assignments and a chance to develop and advance.

Both career paths require individuals who have great moral character, strong interpersonal skills, the ability to handle stress, good judgment and a sound work ethic among other skill sets.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
