Careers


A career in law enforcement is a noble choice indeed!  It is no doubt one of the most difficult jobs to get, yet pays the least.  It is not for everyone, but a career in law enforcement can be very fulfilling for those who truly want to make a difference with their lives.   It almost always requires an extensive background check, and most often a long wait.

There are various entry points for a law enforcement related career, and the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office offers several…

CORRECTIONS…

Working inside of a secure facility is a challenging, yet rewarding experience.  An application can be picked up at the Hunt County Human Resources department, the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office, or downloaded here.  You can deliver your completed application to the Sheriff’s Office or mail it to 2801 Stuart St, Greenville, TX 75401, Attn: Jail Administrator.

If selected and upon successful completion of an interview, you will be given a Personal History Statement packet.  You will have one week to complete the packet in its entirety and return it to the Jail Administrator.   Each candidate is placed on an ordered list and hired as positions become available.

An extensive background investigation will begin when your packet is returned. If for some reason you are disqualified, you will receive a letter informing you.  Once your investigation  is complete, and when a position is available, you will be contacted when you are next on the list.  You will receive a phone call offering you an interview with Jail Administration.  If you are offered employment and you accept, you will be scheduled for medical, mental, and drug screening. Once cleared, you will be scheduled to begin your on-the-job training program.

LAW ENFORCEMENT…

While working in the Corrections Division can be a great advantage for making a move to Deputy, sometimes certified Officers are hired into Patrol as well.   Either way, the process is the same.  It is divided into three sections: Application, Probationary Hire and Full Hire.  The Candidate must be a certified Peace Officer or in the process of certification (academy).  To begin the process, the Candidate picks up and signs for the entire application packet.  The application packet is then returned on the day of the test.
