Want to be sheriff's officer

by
May 05, 2016

The Victorian Sheriff’s Office is calling for applicants from the Hume region.

Sheriff’s officers enforce civil and criminal warrants received from Victorian and interstate courts.

Using a range of enforcement powers and sanctions they encourage people to clear outstanding debts.

The officers enforce warrants by attending addresses, conducting vehicle registration checks or participating in roadblock operations with agencies, such as Victoria Police.

New recruits receive 12 weeks of pre-service classroom and on-the-field training before graduating as a sheriff’s officer.

‘‘Traditionally, we have tended to attract more men than women to the role and this time around we are hoping our recruitment campaign will encourage more women to apply,’’ Victorian Sheriff Brendan Facey said.

‘‘We have a diverse workforce and we are always striving for a great balance of men and women in our ranks.’’

Successful candidates will need to be available to start in their role and the training program from August 22.
