    OC Sheriff's Dept.

    Anyone hear about OCSD doing a short hiring for recruits in July?

    I haven't, I set up a notification so when they do hire they will email me. That would great if they opened up!

    I heard from a buddy who's a deputy and from a deputy that came into my work that they're hiring in July. Then I heard from someone else that the window of opportunity to apply will be 1 day. A lot of "hearing" but nothing concrete....

    I was also told about the one day recruitment when contacting them. Said it would be mid July. Wonder how many they will be looking for.

    At OCSD do you have to start in corrections or do you go right to patrol?

    Aren't they beginning to shorten the jail time now because they're hiring private corrections guys to work the jails?

    I don't know of any private correction workers but I know they have a CSA position which works in the jails. But I believe their website states that its averaging 6 to 8 years in the jail for deputies

    All Deputies work the jail or the courts prior to going to patrol.

    Jail time has been shortened a little bit because of Correctional Service Assistants (CSA's). They're hired on by the Sheriffs Department, and are not privately contracted. They cannot however have direct inmate contact, so there is still a large need for sworn Deputies in the jail.

    The amount of time spent in the jail or courts varies from person to person, and on a few different factors such as time on the department, military experience and education. I've been seeing Deputies with Bachelors Degrees getting out to patrol in about 5 years.

    I will say that they had a Department only recruitment for current department employees and hired 40 some Deputies and put them in the current junior academy class, I think it's 198. I will say they're still looking to hire more Deputies, but when I won't say.

    Everything OCEnforcer is saying is correct. Just put a interest card in here: Deputy Sheriff Trainee Interest Card you will get an email when the county will be taking applications.

    Anyone apply to OCSD yet? I got the email this moring saying they were now hiring deputy trainees. It takes you to the governmentjobs.com website, but it's not listed in the Orange County section. Anyone else having trouble applying?

    You mean on Friday. It sounds like it's a 1 day recruitment. They will have written testing on July 23. I unfortunately can't make this test date.

    Does anyone know if the OCSD written test is the standard POST test or their own inhouse test. I just took a post test the other day, so that is why I ask...

    No laterals for this recruitment and as far as i know, all OCSD Deputies are hired as trainees and go through the OC Sheriffs academy, regardless of prior experience.

    Also to whoever asked, no OCSD doesn't use the POST test they use their own test.

    I live in Northern California. Does anyone know how many trips I would need to Orange County assuming I pass each step of the process?

    I'm also from Northern California (around San Jose)...I've just told myself to get to love driving because I will be doing a lot of it in the coming year(s).
