The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to
announce that we are now holding a continuous
recruitment for the positions of Custody Deputy and

period means that applications will be accepted 24 hours
a day, seven days a week until further notice instead
of the typical set time frame given to apply.  However,
to be considered for the upcoming Custody Deputy

2016.  Applications received after that date will be

importance of having a diverse workforce
that is reflective of our community and encourage
all qualified men and women of varied backgrounds,

A career as a Custody Deputy or Sheriff’s Deputy is
