The King County Sheriff's Office is located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. With a commissioned staff of more than 720, we are among the largest sheriff's departments in the country. Our deputies have opportunities to serve in many different communities, including unincorporated King County, numerous city police departments, a transit police agency, among others.
We offer countless unique assignments that range from school or community-based positions to drug enforcement and bomb disposal. All deputies begin their career on patrol (we have no jail service requirement), providing service to the people of a particular district. Deputies are assigned to single-person patrol cars, and gain a strong sense of ownership in their communities by interacting with the residents, business owners, and visitors to the area. Often, their work requires working together with these people or supporting fellow deputies in adjoining districts.
We strive to recruit candidates who represent the diversity of the communities we serve. We welcome men and women of every culture and ethnic background, and believe that the internal environment of the KCSO supports and respects the differences that exist between us. If you can embrace our mission, vision, goals and core values, then we are interested in you.
If you don't have experience as a commissioned officer, you should apply as an entry-level deputy. Lateral-entry deputies have one or more years of experience as commissioned law enforcement officers. Our wage package allows for advanced step wage placement, using a sliding scale based on your experience, training and education.
We offer countless unique assignments that range from school or community-based positions to drug enforcement and bomb disposal. Some deputies stay in a specialized career assignment, while others move between assignment types as they advance or expand their expertise. Regardless of your assignment, you'll serve the citizens of local communities and work with them and your peers to solve crime problems. Applying to become a KCSO deputy sheriff is your first step towards an exciting and rewarding law enforcement career serving your community.
The King County Sheriff's Office actively recruits qualified new and lateral-entry (previous experience) applicants throughout the year. Because of the size of our operations, there are usually new positions opening up every month.
