  • 3 man department schedule

    Does anyone out there have any schedules/schedule ideas for a 3 man department?

    We are a rural 4 man department (Sheriff, me-Chief Deputy, deputy, traffic deputy)
    We are loosing our traffic deputy and we do not foresee that position being filled anytime soon.
    I am trying to find a schedule that does NOT involve working us to death.
    I have some ideas but would like to see what other ideas are floating around out there.

    If you do not want to post up here, my work email is: [email protected]
    Thanks
    Chris

    You could try a FD type shift 24 on 48 off if your call volume isn't super high and you would be allowed to sleep at the station or somewhere else until a call comes out during the night.

      Sheriff: off
      Chief Deputy: on call
      You: well, you will save a lot with no mortgage.

        I know of some very small agencies in Georgia that do "on-call" for morning watch. If it isn't an emergency situation, it waits until the next day. If the Sheriff is going to take calls, you could let him take calls until about 11 AM. You and the other guy could then do twelve hour shifts from say 11 AM - 11 PM. You could then pick any 12 hour shift pattern that you like.

        Of course, you could tweak the hours to your call volume. The 24 HR FF Schedule would really only work if the Sheriff was willing to pull a 24 hour shift since you need three guys.

          In the smaller counties/cities that have small numbers it is not unusual to have the Chief/Sheriff work a heck of a lot more than the minions ----------mostly because the Cheif/Sheriff are salaried and the officer gets OT//

          We have a 10 officer department and my sheriff is on duty it seems all the time...........(he doesn't work night thou unless its an emergency )

          It just means each of you will be on call 24/7/365
          Most likely 12 hr shift
          Sheriff working Days
          Deputy working Nights
          Chief covering days off for each

            Do you intend 24 hour coverage? If so, you need to look at probably working 40+ hours a week and being on call from home at least 20 hours a week. Since on call time is restricted (you can't drink alcohol, you can't go to whatever town and go to dinner and a movie, etc., expect on call time to be subject to compensation). Do you have any special deputies? Have you given it any thought? A few good specials will be worth their weight in gold.

              Luckily you are in the panhandle, so unless the cacti get juiced (pun intended) you are in pretty good shape.

                That's a lot of supervision for the only deputy.

                  Deputies don't need Supervision directly.

                    BNWS, the titles don't mean what you think they do. Sheriff offices in Texas are weird. The county has to have a Sheriff and Chief Deputy per statue.
                    Why do we try so Hard for Little things, and so Little for Hard things?

                        Two bosses for every worker... sounds about normal.

                          As far as I know every Sheriff's office in the country has a Chief Deputy or an Undersheriff--------------it's who is in charge when the boss is unavailable

                            Sounds like the only way to have 24 hr. on duty coverage.
