For those traveling from outside the area, I will contact local hotels and try to get a discounted rate for the night prior to testing. I suggest you look into the housing and rental market if you are thinking of moving to the area. If you already work in the area or will be visiting the area, please consider doing a ride along with our Deputies. It can be beneficial to have a general understanding about the position prior to testing and interviewing. Ride A-Long Form

Sheriff Deputies display tolerance for those of different values, possess good listening and communication skills and are approachable.  They are team players, honest, flexible and open minded and must have integrity, a sense of humor and an attitude of service.  Patrol Deputies are responsible for enforcing Wyoming State Statues; preventing and detecting suspicious or illegal activity; responding to calls for service; conducting initial investigations; interviewing witnesses, victims, participants and suspects; preparing reports, forms and documents and providing testimony in court proceedings.  Successful candidates must be able to think clearly and take action in tense and uncertain conditions, while maintaining professionalism at all times.  Spanish speaking/comprehension skills are a significant asset.
