How to Apply as a Vanderburgh Jail Confinement Officer
If you have a passion for keeping the community safe, or a desire for a career in law enforcement (the two often go hand-in-hand), the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office is currently accepting applications for Confinement Officers at the County Jail.
To begin the process, all applicants must first take a pre-qualifying test known as a "Corrections Officer Selection Test." These are given four times a year at at the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office Headquarters Training Room on Highway 41 north near the airport, with the next one scheduled for December 9th. However, space is limited to the first 30 people. Call the Executive Secretary at 812-421-6203 to book your spot.
In the event you score a 70% or better, you'll be placed in a pool of candidates that move on to a possible interview with Sheriff Wedding, Chief Deputy John H. Strange III, and their majors. Interviews are held as openings become available at the Jail.
