Careers

The Placer County Sheriff’s Office is allocated just over 600 positions by the Placer County Board of Supervisors. We currently have approximately 250 sworn peace officers, 130 correctional officers, and 224 civilian staff working.

 All employees are held to the highest moral standards and are dedicated to our Agency’s Mission Statement and Code of Ethics. All staff members employed by our Agency undergo an extensive Pre- Employment background investigation to determine moral character and suitability for working as a Placer County Sheriff’s employee.

 Law Enforcement Officers hold a very notable and important role today, maintaining our safety, upholding State and Federal Law and maintaining order in our Corrections Facilities. Although civilian employees are less recognized for their contributions to law enforcement, they too hold important and necessary jobs assisting our Officers in ensuring that our county is a safe place to live, work and visit. Each civilian position is vital to the successful operation of this Agency.
