The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office is one of the most desirable employers among all California law enforcement agencies, drawing candidates from neighboring counties, throughout the state and even other states. As the nation’s ninth largest sheriff’s office, the agency offers a vast array of positions and assignments, backed by great salaries, education incentives, benefits and advancement opportunities.
“We’re at job fairs, college campuses, military bases and on social media, to name just a few of the ways we educate people about who we are and what we can do for them as an employer,” says Captain Michelle Kacalek. “We try hard to conduct our recruiting efforts face-to-face, so for anyone interested who hasn’t encountered us yet, we welcome you to our question-and-answer sessions at our headquarters. Come join us and let us show you the career and lifestyle you can have working for the good of all of Sacramento County.”
“One of the most important assets of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office from a job candidate’s perspective is the morale of our sworn officers and the workplace culture of our professional staff positions,” says Captain Michelle Kacalek. “That comes from the top with Sheriff Jim Cooper and the organization he runs and is visible to those looking in. Our deputies and support staff greatly appreciate this agency and their careers here.”
