  • Prince Williams County Sheriff

    Does Prince Williams County Sheriff Deputies work 8, 10 or 12 hour shift? What is the sheriff office issued sidearm.

  • #2

    Not sure about the shift or the sidearm, but it is the "Prince William (no 's') County Sheriff's Office" about which you inquire. They are a good agency, have nice cars & equipment and they also cover the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park - kind of like the Fairfax County Sheriff's Office covers both Fairfax County and the City of Fairfax.

    Prince William County has a police department, too; which is their primary law enforcement agency.

    Good luck with your search for information!

    The comments above reflect my personal opinion as a private citizen, ordinary motorist and all-around good guy.

        The Prince William County Sheriff's Office issues the Glock in 9mm I believe. They work 8 hour shifts (Mon-Fri) as they only provide security in the judicial complex and serve civil process (as the Police Department handles primary law enforcement duites and the regional detention center is operated by jail officers). Just be mindful that the PWCSO is a fairly small agency (with less than 100 deputies) and, like most sheriff's offices in the commonwealth, there is no job protection - you essentially serve at the pleasure of the sheriff. Hopes this helps....best of luck!!

              No they are not.

              Do the Deputies have take home cars?

                The Sheriff's Office is not responsible for managing the Prince William / Manassas Regional Adult Detention Center. However, if you are interested in working in the ADC, Prince William County is virtually always hiring Jail Officers and (unlike many other surrounding jurisdictions) the Jailers are started at the exact SAME base pay as the County Deputies, Police, and Fire & Rescue personnel. In fact, the Jail Officers often make more than the Deputies as they work longer shifts (12.5 hours I believe) and have more potential for overtime / night differential / holiday pay. It's a pretty sweet gig considering the correctional academy is less than 3 months. As far as Deputy Sheriff take home cruisers are concerned - they are only provided for those working civil process & warrant service (and those sections are highly competetive and require several years on from what I hear). Hope this helps....let me know if you need any further information!!
