We are an Equal Opportunity Employer,
dedicated to a diverse workforce.

I’m ready to make a difference.

Every day is a day to do something right. It’s about more than duty or honor. It’s about making a difference because you know you can, and doing what’s right because you know it matters. It’s what makes you who you are, and it makes you ready for us.

Serving the community since 1850, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department (SCSD) employs over 275 deputy sheriffs, over 250 correctional deputies and over 150 support staff, to protect and secure the half-million residents within the 1,768 square miles of Sonoma County. With more than 30 different highly-trained and specialized units, you can be confident that a career with the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department will be anything but monotonous. If you’re ready for change, challenge and the opportunity make a difference, then you’re ready for us.

Few careers offer the combination of such richly varied opportunities and quality training programs to link your skills and interests to the most personally rewarding jobs. Far from being mundane, the Department offers employment for a wide variety of career goals, interests and abilities. If you’ve ever dreamed of patrolling from a boat or helicopter, serving on a special weapons and tactics team (S.W.A.T.), becoming a communications dispatcher or detective, or even supervising inmates before they’re released back into society, then a career with SCSD can make that dream a reality.
