“Our agency has a lot to offer, from working with professional and experienced law enforcement personnel to competitive wages and a supportive law enforcement community,” Sheriff Dan Coverley said. “We realize that testing can be a big commitment and we’re looking to condense the process to recruit and identify qualified individuals to fill several open positions. On this day we want to talk to you about your desire to become a law enforcement officer, take the time to answer any questions, and let recruits get a feel for what makes the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office a great place to make an impact on the community you will serve.”

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is the only law enforcement agency for the county serving the communities of Minden, Gardnerville, Genoa, Topaz Lake, Stateline, and Zephyr Cove.

Benefits include modified field training, a four-day workweek, comprehensive medical benefits, 13 annual holidays, education incentives, and more. Competitive wages start at $62,000 to $84,200 for a Lateral Deputy Sheriff II (based on experience, plus shift differential, incentives and a take-home patrol car) or $59,000 for a Deputy Sheriff I (no experience).
