Make a Difference
Sheriff's Office employees make a difference in their community every day. We affect people’s lives positively by apprehending dangerous criminals, reaching out to crime or crisis victims and helping the underprivileged through community programs.
A deputy may spend part of his or her career in a myriad of assignments: School Resource Officer, K-9 or civil deputy, motorcycle or bike units, or as an investigator. He or she may also be tracking drug activity in and around suburban Jefferson County and may later live and work as a resident deputy in the rural mountain area.
Professional employees work in a variety of functions from emergency management to animal control and crime analysis to criminalistics. The supportive administrative functions are vital in supporting The JCSO mission, vision, and values.
