We Value Veterans

There’s no hiding the connection between military service and law enforcement. We actively seek veterans because we know their training, experience, discipline and selflessness is unrivaled. We like to think of a career at WCSO as a continuation of what you started in the Marines, Air Force, Navy, Army or Coast Guard.

  • Roughly one-third of our staff, including Sheriff Pat Garrett himself, have served or continue to serve in the military
  • Veterans receive more “points” in our hiring process / Competitive edge in hiring process – your service career is valuable, veterans receive additional “points”
  • A degree is great but not necessary
  • We will waive your employment testing fee if conducted at Camp Pendleton on October 25

Show Your True Colors

We don’t adhere to a universal mold when recruiting deputies. We value all life experiences, interests and quirks that make you, well, YOU. The only thing we ask is that you share our core values of doing your best, doing the right thing, and treating others the way you want to be treated.
