  • Lateral Transfer

    I'm considering doing a lateral to WA, specifically Pierce/King county area. I'd be coming from WI with certifications as a Jailer (Correctional Officer) and as a LEO with 3 years experience.

    I'd like to know, who's done a lateral and to/from where. What was the process like? How would you rate your experience? What should I look for or plan for that you would recommend. Specifically, things you weren't expecting or that caught you off guard that i should be aware of.

    Thanks...
    Nobody ever wants to have to fight, but its a darn good idea for someone to know how.

    For Pierce County you would still have to go through the same application/background process as the entry-level applicants. The only difference being, as a lateral, you might come in at a higher pay grade.
    If you came in as a CO, you would still have to go through the 4-week academy. But, with your LEO experience, you might be able to only have to attend an equivalency academy (2 weeks?) if you came in as a deputy (the LEO academy is regularly 20 weeks).

      Thanks for the heads up.

      What about other departments in the area that you may have knowledge of. I am certified as a CO, but really have no intention of transferring for a CO position, I'm required to get and maintain the certification because of my current job.

        Seattle Police

        Take a look at Seattle PD. The website is seattlepolicejobs.com We are actively recruiting both sworn lateral and entry-level applicants at this time. Depending on your experience as a sworn police officer you would come in at a higher pay step then an entry-level officer. Your training and experience as a sworn police officer would have to be evaluated. The background process is expedited for laterals as well. If you have any questions give our recruiter a call at (206) 615-0762

          The website for Pierce County is www.piercesheriff.org.
          You can also contact the recruiter, Deputy Patrick dos Remedios at 1-866-926-7277. We also are recruiting both entry-level and lateral for both deputy and corrections.
          There is also a program where, after 3 years in P.C. Corrections, you can transition to deputy without a cut in pay or service.
