        I worked the jail there a few years ago. Not to go into details but many of the deputies there are not the happiest LEO's around. Oh and they're the least paid in the county.

            Beginning pay is about the same as most (Noblesville starts at $40,000 and Sheriff starts at $43,000-$50,00 based on experience, Westfield is the highest paid agency starting around $51,000) and tops out as high as other agencies. Benefit package is great with better pension than state PERF (50% of top 3 years' earning at 20 years rather than 77 PERF rules, DROP available, deferred comp and matching funds from county) and no contribution required, better insurance than most, great equipment (state wide cars, uniforms, X2 Taser), specialty teams (including K9 team that is called out statewide), etc... Every agency has some naysayers. Feel free to PM if you need more information.

              I was not speaking in terms of benefits. All Hamilton County agencies are above average when it comes to pay and benefits. Having actually worked for that agency many of the deputies (jail and road) are not real happy with the way the dept is ran. Obviously every dept has pros and cons. It just seemed like every officer I ran into from one of the surrounding towns advised to work for them and not county.

                I'm planning to apply. If I don't get hired by one of the PERF agencies I'm in process with by October of this year I'm going to end up having to do either county or state anyway because I'm turning 36 this year. That is interesting what I'm hearing about the retirement plan potentially being a little better. I'm also currently in the Trooper process, have my polygraph scheduled for early March.

                My only insight into Hamilton Co. SO was talking to someone who I did a training with a few months ago who told me he used to be a deputy there. He didn't have anything bad to say about it. He said he liked his job there, he had to leave for other reasons.

                Any idea how many they are looking to hire?

                Thanks

                  If that's the criteria, every police and sheriff's dept sucks. Cops bitch and whine. It's our sacred right.

                    Working at a neighboring department, most I run into from HCSO enjoy working there. The previous Sheriff was kick *** (now supt. of state police). New Sheriff obviously hasn't quite lived up to the high standard set. Pay is good and equipment is top notch.

                    I believe they are only hiring 1 though.
