Becoming a sworn deputy with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office isn’t just a job – it’s a real privilege. Why? Because unlike so many larger police agencies, here at the MCSO, you will treated like a person – not a number. The nature of our work and the scope of our terrain mean that you will carry a heavier load. It means you will often be called on to make decisions and act independently. That isn’t so true in larger police agencies where you are one officer among dozens of officers responding to a scene, being told what to do, when, where and how. Being a trained Sheriff’s deputy, on the other hand, will have you knowing the rules and doing what's right. You will be an independent thinker inside a small team working together, relying on each other, to get the job done, whatever that job is. The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is looking for strong, confident and responsible persons with leadership qualities. If that describes you and if you are anxious to serve and protect your community, please apply to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office - where being different is a privilege.
