Corrections Positions

Reserve Correctional Officer Recruitment Sutter County Sheriff's Office employes a full-time staff of Correctional Officers as well as approximately 15 Reserve Correctional Officers within the Corrections Section of the Jail Division.

Reserve Correctional Officers

Working along side full time staff during the training period, Reserve Correctional Officers (a.k.a. Jail Reserve Officers) are then transitioned into fully trained officers. We utilize reserve officers for all facets in the division including but not limited to:  booking, transportation, bailiff, civil and hospital coverage.

Reserve Correctional Officers undergo a three phase training program by which they are evaluated each day they work. These officers are trained in every assignment in the division including but not limited to:  Single Cell Unit, Minimum Facility, Floor Officer, Dorm Unit, Main Jail Control, Transportation, Bailiff/Courts, Civil Division and Firearms.

Minimum qualifications of a Reserve Correctional Officer are that an applicant must be at least twenty-one (21) years of age at appointment, possess a valid California Drivers License and have a High School diploma or G.E.D. In addition, it is recommended that an applicant has completed, prior to submiting an application, the 832 P.C. course (Law of Arrest and Search & Seizure) with the Firearms Qualification Class or college units in Police Science, Corrections or a closely related field. This position is paid hourly at $6.50 and is non-benefited. The position is assigned to various shifts where need exists.

The Reserve Correctional Officer position is a valuable asset to the division as we depend on these individuals to supplement the full time staff, assist with extra duties and special details.

Often, the Reserve Officers hold down full time jobs, and participate in our program part-time for the job skills, training, knowledge and posses a unique interest in this facet of Law Enforcement. When full time positions become available, our Reserve Officers are often first to fill those vacancies.
