The Human Resources Unit is responsible for the Sheriff’s oversight of hiring, promotions, retirements and movement of personnel within the agency.  They process and manage claims with the county and affiliated entities to ensure job injury claims and requirements are followed while processing employee requests for medical and protected leaves. 

The Sheriff’s Office has a rigorous pre-employment screening process. All department positions are required to undergo an interview, polygraph and background investigation. Some positions also require a medical and psychological evaluation. 

All risk management functions also are coordinated through the Human Resources Unit. This includes claims for damages, lawsuits, workers compensation claims, as well as other legal issues.
