  • Dallas County, Iowa

    http://www.co.dallas.ia.us/departmen...-opportunities

    Here is the link to a deputy opening in Dallas County. In case the link doesn't work, do an internet search for their website and you should be able to find it. Dallas County in the fastest growing county in the state and the department has a pretty good rep, despite some issues over the last several years. The sheriff over there is well respected and took care of problems with a couple of personnel changes.

        The previous administration was the issue. Google it and you will see what the problems were. That was several years ago and they have turned around.

                      does anyone know how the pay structure works there? says they start at about $40k a year which seems low compared to other departments in the area? I'm guessing thats only the recruit pay and once you finish your training then you get a raise?

                        Remember Dallas county is NOT Polk county---------tax base much lower and even though it is the "Metro" area, you still are a small county with MUCH smaller pay.

                        The County only shows a 2010 census of 66,000

                        Starting pay of 40k is about right for that population base

                          Mid 40's is the going rate to start for most of the departments around here. DMPD and Polk County are higher but as Iowa said, they have a higher tax base to start. My department (in Polk County) starts at 48; Ankeny, Johnston, Urbandale are not too far off that for starting pay. Most departments around here bump you up in pay fairly quick, a five year to top pay scale is pretty common.
