you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to protect
your community and the citizens of Volusia County. We are extremely proud of

Not everyone can be a Deputy Sheriff. A Deputy is required to be physically
fit, alert and exercise good judgment, often with very little time to analyze available options. A Deputy must have a good command of verbal and
written communication skills and remain calm during emergencies. The hours
are sometimes long and the responsibilities are many. Men and women who enter this honorable profession do so from a strong desire to serve others
and a commitment to protect innocent members of our society from criminals
who prey upon them.
The Volusia County Sheriff's Office offers many exciting law enforcement
career opportunities, along with a vast array of benefits and educational
incentives. We have five law enforcement patrol districts throughout Volusia
County and a centrally-located Operations Center. In addition, the Sheriff's
Office operates a variety of highly-trained specialized units, including
SWAT, narcotics, auto theft, crime analysis, intelligence, major case, juvenile investigations, sex crimes, elder crimes, traffic, aviation,
marine, motors, dive team, bomb disposal and K-9. If this sounds like an
exciting way to spend the next 25 years of your life and you have the necessary skills and motivation, we challenge you to submit an application
