  • CORRECTIONAL OFFICER I - Sonoma County SD

    CORRECTIONAL OFFICER I
    Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department
    $20.19 - $24.54 hourly

    The Position
    This is the entry level, trainee class in the Correctional Officer series. Incumbents initially work under close supervision, learning the rules, regulations, practices and procedures as they relate to the day-to-day operation and control of detention facilities. Incumbents are expected to work under general supervision and acquire the required knowledge and ability to be considered for promotion to Correctional Officer II after approximately one year. Individuals newly hired or reinstated into this job class shall serve a probationary period of one year. Individuals promoted to the class of Correctional Officer II shall serve a probationary period of six months.

    This class is distinguished from Correctional Officer II in that the latter is the fully trained journey level class in the Correctional Officer series. Positions allocated to Correctional Officer II require previous experience and training, and perform their duties with a greater degree of independence and discretion.

    Incumbents in this classification may be designated as peace officers under PC 830.1(c) and must meet the requirements as identified under the minimum qualifications.

    NOTE: Those applicants meeting the minimum qualifications will be sent an invitation to a written exam. The written exam is tentatively scheduled for: Thursday, April 27, 2006 at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building.


    The Work Environment
    Sonoma County is recruiting Correctional Officers who are willing to work inside housing units supervising inmates and their activities. The harshness of the traditional jail style has been replaced by a "New Generation/Direct Supervision Jail Facility". Therefore, demands are placed on professional correctional staff to develop interpersonal communication skills and management style approaches to dealing with inmates.


    The Sheriff’s Department Main Adult Detention Facility
    The Main Adult Detention Facility (MADF) is located at 2777 Ventura Avenue in the Hall of Justice Complex. The Main Adult Detention Facility (MADF) was opened in 1991. This "new generation" facility was based on a "direct supervision" design, as opposed to the "linear" design of the County's earlier jails. Originally designed to hold close to 500 inmates, the facility quickly reached it's housing capacity and an expansion was opened in 1997 to provide an additional 290 beds. The facility is a medium/maximum security facility, housing both pre-trial and sentenced inmates.

    The direct supervision concept at MADF encourages officer contact with inmates and emphasizes the use of interpersonal communication skills. Officers provide a leadership role and make themselves available to inmates by using the new generation/direct supervision model for inmate management.

    Currently, facility staffing includes 145 Correctional Officers, 18 sergeants, 5 lieutenants, and one captain. Support staff includes 29 legal processors, 22 detention assistants, 18 cooks and 7 janitors.


    Do You Have What It Takes?
    Education: Graduation from high school or possession of an acceptable General Education Development Certificate.

    Experience: None.

    License: Possession of a valid California license at the appropriate level including necessary special endorsements, as required by the State of California to perform the essential job functions of the position.

    Special Qualifications: Must be at least 18 years of age at time of appointment. Willingness to work in uniform during weekdays, weekends, holidays, overtime, and on any assigned work shift.

    Citizenship Requirement: Permanent resident aliens who wish to be employed as peace officers must apply for citizenship prior to application for such employment. Permanent resident aliens must cooperate with the U.S. Department of Immigration in meeting all requirements for U.S. citizenship. If a permanent resident alien has not obtained citizenship within three years after application for employment or is denied citizenship, he or she shall be disqualified for peace officer status.

    Background Requirement: Incumbents shall not have been convicted of a felony in this state or any other state or in any federal jurisdiction, or of any offense in any other state or in any federal jurisdiction, which would have been a felony if committed in this state, nor be under current formal probation supervision.
