Sheriffs office seeks deputy applicants

Recruitment fair is Thursday in Hillsboro


The Washington County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) is seeking qualified applicants to fill four deputy positions that are becoming available because of retirements.

Applications will be accepted until Oct. 18.

“When deputies respond to calls, a wide variety of skills improve communications, such as experience working with the mentally ill or speaking a second language. We want a strong pool of applicants who live the sheriff’s office’s core values: Do your best, do the right thing and treat other people the way you want to be treated. This is our first step in hiring people who understand and relate to the citizens we serve,” said Undersheriff Jeff Mori.

WCSO is hosting a recruitment fair from 8 a.m. to noon on Thursday, Oct. 10, at WCSO’s Hillsboro headquarters, 215 S.W. Adams Ave.
