Do you want to join an organization that protects, serves and supports our community with integrity?


You have an opportunity to assist others in need, provide protective services when necessary, and offer guidance and example to the youth of the community.


We offer a comprehensive salary and benefits package for employees that includes health and dental insurance, employee clinic, paid leave, and tuition reimbursement.  Most of our benefits are aligned with the Alachua County benefits.  We also offer cutting edge and comprehensive training available in law enforcement. 

We’ll pay you to start your career.  Interested?


The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office will sponsor you through either the law enforcement certification academy or the corrections certification academy.  Or both.  Really.  We’ll pay your tuition.  We’ll take care of uniforms.  All while earning a paycheck as an employee on your way to the career of a lifetime.


Already certified?  We want you on the team.  Add another certification if you want, or enjoy your head start in the hiring process and additional pay based on your experience.


Get ready.  We have standards, and they’re high – but you can reach them with us.  Just take a look at our agility course video for a taste of the adventure.
