Well that sucks. If that’s true that they’re not hiring at the moment, they should close the opening. Oh well, at least I got 18 months to hope for more openings

The gentleman said that they are actively hiring GSNs and that when they have DSO openings, they will look to promote internally before opening it to the public.

The message board has been pretty quiet lately. Has anyone heard anything from HR in the past month or so? I know a few of us were waiting on calls. Has anyone gotten anything?

over staffing ends real quick. We are losing a lot of staff to retirements, resignations and Admistrative releases. I would say we have probably list 50 in the last two months so expect to have DSO candidates called fairly soon.

For those of us outside the loop, can you explain the acronyms.

For us, you are either a DPO, or some variation of office staff or legal clerk.

GSN. Group Supervisor Nights- supervises housing units in a juvenile hall or camp from 10pm to 6am.

DSO Detention Services Officer. supervises wards during day shifts in juvenile halls.

DPO I Deputy Probation Officer 1 supervises wards during days in a probation camp.

DPO II shift leader for DPO I in camp or has a caseload supervising probationers from a field office.

all are peace officer positions. only difference is the pay is higher as you progress through the ranks due to increased responsibility.

Question: GSN-- Did anyone bring their sealed HS transcript to the initial background appt.? I've been out of HS for over 20 yrs and I doubt that my transcript are available. Would my most recent (2017) bachelor's degree transcripts be sufficient in lieu of the HS transcripts?

Process:
7/18/2018 - submitted application online
8/24/2018 - written exam
9/21/2018 - oral exam
10/15/281 - recieved email for bckgrnd appt.10/30/2018

you have to bring proof that you graduated high school. it is a county requirement.

just call your old high school and ask for your transcripts. good luck.

Try checking online. Parchment works with HS with transcripts.

Can someone telling me about the background process? Is it a more in-depth background done to new hires vs promotional ? Does the department do a full background or the last 7-10 yrs. I know some other county’s do the last 7-10 yrs.

all open competitive and promotional from other county agencies have a full background of last 10 years. if you already work for the department, a light background is completed upon promotion. If coming from non peace officer to peace officer promotion, then a more extensive background is completed.
