  • Gibson County Sheriff's Department taking applications

    Just heard on the radio Gibson County Sheriff's Dept is taking applications till Nov. 6th for the position of Deputy. Too bad I just bought a house in Warrick County or I'd apply.


    Here is the link to the web page.

      I didn't see it on the site. I'm not really familiar with the department.

        The website says that the salary to be determined. Which translates to: if and IF they hire some green rookie, they'll have a much lower salary then if they hired a lateral or someone with at least some experience.

        That's exactly what the sheriff's department here in my area did at their last round of hiring.

          I can't apply because of the "20 years of service by age 55" clause. Oh well.

            I'm unsure of the department as well. I could've sworn a while back that it stated on the website about being a reserve first before one could get hired as a deputy.

              Princeton Police Department, located in Gibson County hires from their Reserve Officers. I don't think Gibson County Sheriff has hired in several years. I don't know if their reserves get preference or not...
              I heard the regular deputies don't make more than 30K a year...

                I can't believe folks actually work for this amount of money. I guess if they get a take home vehicle, that is at least worth another $5K, but still, a combined benefit wage package of only $35K! Maybe the run load is super slow or something.

                  Ahhhhh, the magic $5,000 number that take home vehicle is supposedly worth. Not really worth $5k if you drive it to and from work and park it at home is it? Anyway, you know not everywhere has the same cost of living that the Indy Metro area has. Gibson county, as well as a lot of southwest Indiana, has some of the lowest cost of living in the state.

                  I was shocked when I moved to my current city at how low homes and land are in this area. I'm talking same size home/lot will cost you about $50k MORE where I'm from then it will here.

                  You think Gibson Co. pay is low, don't look at Crawford Co. You'll pass out.

                      Ugh, yea..for me it would easily be worth $5,000...and I base that on to and from work only. I drive 34 miles round trip per day, say $3.00/day in gas to make it easy. Say I drive to work 240 days out of the year (factoring in vacations), that alone is $720 in gas. Now factor in my insurance, which is about another $700 for the year, so we are up to $1,400 right there. Factor in oil changes, brake pads, etc., and I feel it easily is worth $2,000 that stays in my personal bank account. Get in a minor crash with a person who doesn't have insurance, that $500 deductible stays in my pocket, now we are up to $2,500. If I were not some what mechanically inclined (ie: I can do my own brakes, change my own oil, etc.), I would easily be out at least another $500/year, if not more. The crash liability alone, to me at least, makes it a $5,000 benefit. One could also factor in the loss of off-duty work because some companies want not just a uniformed officer, but also a marked police vehicle. Now that could be worth anywhere from $2,000/year to $10,000/year depending on how much one decides to work. So on the low end we are looking at it being worth $2,400, which to me is not a little amount. I thought it would be worth more than that on the low end, but the numbers don't lie. On the medium range, say it is worth $3,500ish. For those folks who use the car to get a part-time gig, and/or drive it around on government gas for everything, it is easily approaches

                      It really shocks me that in Indiana, there are places with lower costs of living. Granted the metro area might seem costly, but I went six years constantly looking at home prices. Even in the more rural areas of the metro region, house prices weren't that much different. You could live 15 miles further away from Indy, but the home price wasn't that different. Maybe the central part of the state has a higher population belt running through it, but homes in rural Parke Co. were just as costly as homes in Hendricks, Hancock, Shelby, etc. The only places where home prices were highest in the metro area was Brownsburg clockwise to SE Hamilton Co.. And of course the NW corner of Johnson Co. had some expensive homes. Other than that, it didn't matter where you looked (Rush Co., around Knightstown, Hancock Co., Shelby Co., Madison Co.), you were looking at $120K to $130K (this was pre-market crash) for a decent 1,300 sq. ft., non-vinyl village, home on at least .5-1 acre.
