Personnel Division

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) Personnel Division’s mission is to provide leadership for the efficient management of the agency’s workforce.

Its goal is to employ, retain, promote, discipline, discharge and otherwise treat all employees and job applicants on the basis of merit, qualifications and competence.

The division’s focus is to support a diverse work environment. Workplace diversity is accomplished by ensuring that no person is discriminated against based on race, disability, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, age, sex, sexual orientation/expression, marital status, veteran status, pregnancy or genetic information in its programs, activities and employment, unless based upon a bona fide occupational qualification.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office employs approximately 600 people in a variety of jobs from law enforcement and detention, to equipment and facilities maintenance, to medical and telecommunications, to administrative support staff.

The agency values its employees and offers a competitive salary and benefits package. CCSO fosters a rewarding work environment for its employees through a generous leave system, paid holidays, wellness programs, training, tuition refund, and career advancement opportunities.

The division is responsible for directing the functions of employee recruitment and selection, employee benefits, employee recognition, performance appraisals, tuition refund and employee relations. It also recruits and trains qualified volunteers to assist the agency.
