    Lee County Sheriffs Office Accepting Applications

    Applied for the Detention Deputy today.

    I currently have 4 years with Florida Department of Corrections. I am a 3rd year College Student.. I have one Unfavorable work history mis-hap..In the year of 2009 I was given a 5 day suspension for "Leaving assigned work station" in their words. Anyone working for D.O.C knows how the agency is with wanting to fill officer's file up with non-sense so they can be stuck there and can't go to a better agency.

    Does this department tend to hire applicants that have completed their College Education or favor applicants with Work Experience?

    Anyone knows how long this process take?

    I spoke to a couple of people in the Human Resources Department today..a woman named Melissa and Tari? They seemed pretty imformative and answered all my questions.

    Thanks.

    Interesting.........Are they hiring for both Corrections and Law Enforcement or just Corrections? If so do you think they would sponsor? I'm Certified in LE but I'm not having much luck finding a job in LE and if I have to go back to Corrections that would just be a hiccup to what I really want to be.

    My CO Certification went out the window back in 2008 so I have to go through the CO academy all over again which I really don't mind or go to a crossover from LE to CO which I wouldn't mind either.



    How was your process when you went? Did you talk to a background investigator when you turned in your application? Any info would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!
    Law Enforcement is a career like none other. You face challenges everyday and you get rewarded in the sametime. Thats why LE work is the best career an individual can ever choose. - Me

    Lee County, beautiful place

    I can't tell you much about the Sheriff's office, but I love that location. The Cape Coral, Ft. Myers, Sanibel Island, and Charlotte Harbor areas are some of the most impressive places in the state. My wife and I (both officers) eloped at the Sanibel Harbor Resort (Marriott) three years ago, and have visited the place on our anniversary every year since.

    My intel is probably dated, but a Deputy I knew said the Sheriffs office would give you $1000 per year of experience. He got on there in 2006ish and with his 10 years started right at $50K. Those were much different economic times then and I don't see the prior experience bonuses anywhere anymore.

    Good luck.

    Hi everyone so I recently got the 2nd part of the LCSO application and will be turning it in next week. Can someone tell me around how soon after that I should be hearing a response. And any info about the department would be great (from someone who either works or has worked there would be fantastic) I was looking through here but it's pretty outdated. I didn't want to start a new thread as this was already here.

    I sent you a PM but I'm not sure if it went through or not (I was using my phone).

    My application took about 7.5 to 8 months from start to finish.
    By "2nd part" do you mean you filled out the prescreen app and have turned in the main app? If so the next step for you will be the Background Investigation. You should receive a call from your BI saying the he is starting it. Also, if you haven't already, finish up the physical at the Lee Memorial location, the BI won't finish until you do that.

    Yes. They'll schedule everything step by step. You'll receive a call from HR.
    If you receive a letter in the mail from LCSO after a test, it's a no go...If you receive a call you're good.

    -Pre App
    -Full App (physical included)
    -Background Investigation
    -Poly
    -Oral
    -Psych
    -Medical
