  5. Why Snohomish County

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is looking for Corrections Deputies to monitor, supervise and maintain custody of inmates in the Snohomish County Jail. All jail housing units are operated in a humane, safe, and secure manner under the Principles of Direct Supervision. A direct supervision jail effectively controls inmate behavior through a combination of architectural design, inmate housing assignments, and ground rules. Module corrections deputies bear a large part of the responsibility by overseeing and caring for inmates in the jail in a variety of positions, including:

  • transport
  • release
  • community corrections
  • visitation
  • inmate accounts
  • booking
  • classification
  • medical

Depending on assignment and experience, a Snohomish County corrections deputy will:

  • book inmates into jail, including conducting a screening to determine medical or other special needs
  • conducts pat downs and strip searches
  • fingerprint inmates
  • supervise inmate activities, including food services, clean-up, visitation, and education
  • check for outstanding warrants and criminal history
  • transport inmates to court or other appointments, sometimes off-site
  • conduct regular security checks
  • administer breathalyzer or urinalysis

The work is rewarding but demanding.
