If your current job is not providing the challenge and fulfillment you are looking for, consider making a change to law enforcement. Regardless of your previous line of work, real-world experience will serve you well as a peace officer. We are encouraging persons who are working in other fields to apply for the Carver County Sheriff’s Office Cadet Program. The Sheriff’s Cadet Program is designed to facilitate the entry of qualified candidates to a Deputy Sheriff position. Positions within the licensed deputy divisions include; Patrol, Civil Process, Recreational Services, Court Services and Investigations. Additional assignments may include; Crime Scene Technicians, SWAT, Field Training Officer, Range Instructor, Use of Force Instructor, Detective and Narcotics Agent.

Sheriff Cadets are individuals the Sheriff’s Office has committed to employ as licensed peace officers when they meet all hiring standards for the position. The Carver County Sheriff’s Office will provide proper education and training to Cadets that fully satisfy Minnesota P.O.S.T (Peace Officer Standards Training) Board requirements.

A Deputy Sheriff should be a practitioner in the areas of interpersonal skills, problem solving skills, and ethical decisions. These characteristics are important and required to become a successful Sheriff’s Deputy. Your current life skills and experience will help you transition to your new career in law enforcement.

Furthermore, a Deputy Sheriff must have a strong selfless commitment and willingness to serve with a strong desire to be a positive role model in the community.

Although we are not currently accepting applications for the Sheriff’s Office Cadet Program, we encourage you to sign up for alerts on the Job Openings page.  You will then receive a notification when we are accepting applications for the program. Make this your final career destination by joining our team and serving the citizens of Carver County as a Deputy Sheriff.
