Reserve Detention Deputy
Job Description

Must Have State Certification or be enrolled in the Corrections academy


The HCSO is looking for highly motivated individuals to serve as Reserve Detention Deputies (state certified only). This is an excellent opportunity for individuals to gain first-hand experience in the field as a Detention Deputy before deciding to dedicate themselves to the profession full-time. Many Detention Deputies have taken advantage of this great opportunity, as it is the practice of the HCSO to offer full-time positions (as they become available) to those individuals who volunteer their time in a Reserve capacity.


The responsibility of the reserve detention deputy is the security and integrity of the facility, which includes prevention of escape, injury to the staff, or injury to inmates. Due to the classification status of inmates housed in these housing units, extreme caution must be exercised during the normal discharge of duties. The reserve detention deputy works in close coordination with the housing control member and the shift supervisor. The duties of the reserve detention deputy assigned to direct supervision of inmates housed in this section include visiting, meals, phone calls, linen exchange, movement of inmates and recreation. The reserve detention deputy reports directly to the assigned shift supervisor
