  • jail duty for rookies?

    When somebody joins a force as a police officer, does that person have to start in jail duty and work his way up to a patrolman, or do people apply seperately for the jobs in jails.

    Here in Utah, the jail is run by the sheriffs office. The sheriffs hire for the jail and for patrol seperately, although, a lot of the jailers apply for the patrol positions when they come out and usually get them.

      In Kentucky the Jailer and the Sheriff are elected officials and each runs his / her respective agency. Deputy jailers are hired seperately from the Deputy sheriffs and generally do not cross over, as there are different training standards.

      Most states the sheriff runs the jail, and depending on need, will start deputies in the jail and work up to patrol duties. Just depends on where you are.

      Municipalities have nothing to do with the jail unless there is an Urban/County government like Louisville-Jefferson County and Lexington-Fayette Urban County .

        In Washington most counties you do not have to start out in the jail. I can only think of one where that is the case.

          If you join a Sheriff's Dept or other agency that has a jail that needs to be manned 24/7, then probably.

            Check the website for the sheriff offices you want to apply, sometimes they will say whether or not they hire into the jail first. I do know that most larger counties that have a substantial jail usually do hire straight into the jail...rookies have to do their time before moving up into patrol and other duties.
