    Brevard County Sheriff

    Does anyone know if they're actively hiring or just accepting applications? If they are hiring, any idea how many positions?

    Does anyone work for them? What do you think of the department?

    Thanks

    I've heard they just hired 30 people and they still have openings. I dont not work there although i have talked to people that work there, and they all say they wouldn't work any where else. Its a good ageny and they have a top notch Sheriff.

    I've been called for an Oral Board with BCSO, but I've rescheduled for a later date. Seems like a great agency, and I heard the Sheriff supports his deputies.

    I applied a few weeks ago, and haven't heard anything back. When did you apply Gringe?

    Not speaking for Gringe, but my application took almost a year from start to finish (I could just be an outlier) After completing the oral board, it took about 4 1/2 months to complete backgrounds, PAT test, poly, etc, to finally get on.

    The Brevard Police Academy just graduated a record class of 69 people. Almost half have received jobs in the county already. Not looking good for hiring in this county right now...

    Can anyone tell me what that thing on top of all their lightbars is? I'm guessing it's the siren speaker?

    ...spotlight. I was down there this weekend and I believe I saw a newer car without one so maybe they will eventually be phased out. Synstsia?

    They're the spotlights. Most cars have them on the drivers side. These, I believe, are remotely controlled. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. One thing is for sure, they look goofy as hell.

    How long did it take to hear something after you submitted the initial app?

    I handed mine in probably 4 months ago, and have yet to hear anything. I spoke with the lady from career development, she said with the amount of applications they get it takes a while.
