Wichita County Sheriff's Office seeks Veterans for Detention Officer Position

WICHITA FALLS,Texas_ The Wichita County Sheriff's Office wants to hire veterans and they're holding a job fair this weekend to do just that. 


The purpose of Saturday's fair is to recruit vets into law enforcement jobs, especially Detention Officer positions. The office partnered with the Texas Veterans Commission to put on the event.
TVC representative Tim Shatto thinks some veterans would be a good fit for these positions. 

"There's going to be a lot of veterans that regardless of what their job skill was in the military will have some sort of training or some sort of experience with it," said Shatto. 

Brien Conner, the Recruiter for Wichita County Sheriff's Office, agrees that their military experience would be a plus. 

"They come from a background of discipline where training is important in the military that a lot of civilians don't get to see, " said Conner. 

Applications can also be downloaded and completed ahead of time by logging on to the county's website, www.co.wichita.tx.us/. Both male and female veterans are encouraged to apply.  

Anyone interested should bring copies of High School Diploma or GED, College Transcripts,
DD-214, Birth Certificate, Drivers License and their Social Security card. The job fair will be held this Saturday from 8a.m. - 4p.m. at the Wichita County Courthouse.
