Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office
Golden, Colorado

Hiring Salary Range $125,000 to $132,000

Deadline: April 30, 2017

Apply at www.krw-associates.com


The Position
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is seeking a career professional to lead the management and operations of the Jefferson County Detention Services Division. Historically, the Sheriff’s Office has assigned a Division Chief (Certified Peace Officer) to manage and administer the Detentions Division on a periodically rotated basis. This position is transitioning to a full-time Detentions Administrator, certified Peace Officer or non-certified, selected specifically for permanent assignment for jail administration. The Detentions Administrator will be hired by the Sheriff, report to the Undersheriff, and will serve as a member of the Sheriff’s Office Executive Team consisting of the Sheriff, Undersheriff, and three Division Chiefs. The Detentions Administrator (division chief equivalent) is assisted by two captains, five lieutenants, 25 sergeants and several civilian supervisors.

The Community
Jefferson County was organized in 1859 under the Colorado Territorial Legislature. In 1861 it became one of the 17 original counties in the Territory of Colorado. Jefferson County has evolved from a frontier agricultural and mining area into a thriving modern suburban, business, industrial, recreational and residential community. A three-person Board of County Commissioners, assisted by a County Manager, oversees the day-to-day county business. Twelve incorporated cities or towns lie completely or partially within Jefferson County, spread over 122 square miles. The population of those cities is nearing 350,000. Another 201,000 people reside in the unincorporated areas of the county that includes suburban and mountain areas spread over an additional 557 square miles. Jefferson County is “the Gateway to the Mountains” where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains. County residents and visitors enjoy magnificent scenery in the country and abundant rolling grasslands, craggy rock formations, natural foothills, rugged mountains and tumbling streams. The County’s nationally recognized Open Space programs offers a variety of recreational opportunities. Partially within Jefferson County are Golden Gate Canyon State Park and Chatfield Recreation Area. Portions of three national forests; Pike, Roosevelt and Arapahoe lie within the southern and western areas of the County.

The Organization
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) was founded in November 1859 during the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush. The first election for sheriff was held nine months later in October 1860. Since then 38 individuals have been elected sheriff. The current Sheriff, Jeff Shrader, was sworn into office in January of 2015 and he oversees a department of 542 certified law enforcement deputies and 283 professional staff. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is statutorily responsible for maintaining the county jail which is located within the JCSO headquarters building in Golden. The facility comprises 388,000 square feet with room for male and female detainees in separate housing modules. The physical plant consists of three towers: the first two opened in 1986 and a new third tower opened in 2000. Together they provide for a total capacity of about 1600 in minimum, medium, and maximum-security units and special housing areas. The jail is accredited through the American Correctional Association (ACA). The medical unit is accredited through the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare (NCCHC).

The Ideal Candidate
