        What are the shifts like? Rotatating? How many hours long? Also how long does it normally take to promote/qualify to other areas like transportation...booking or court security?

        Thanks in advance for your input.

                All the sheriff's office employees I have seen transporting prisoners are Deputy Sheriffs.

                Are you saying that any detention officer that goes through the basic detention academy training can carry a weapon and transport prisoners?

                  Yes, a detention officer can carry a weapon and transport prisoners. After graduating SCCJA Basic Jail training the Sheriff's Office can qualify them with a weapon and they can carry the weapon while performing official duties outside the jail.
