• No, when you are hired on at the sheriff department it is just like any other job. You interview for the job you want. I.E. jail guard, cook, custodian, deputy, etc.
  • Every jurisdiction is different. If a Sheriff's Dept. covers an entire county and is the main source of law enforcement, then no, they do not start as jail guards. If the jurisdiction is a metropolitan form of government, then most deputies do not have arrest powers and do serve as jail guards. Like i said, it depends on the form of government and individual laws that govern that jurisdiction. In Nashville, The Metro Police Dept. covers all 633 square miles of Davidson County as the main law enforcement body. the Sheriff's Dept. here, only handles civil process and prisioners and have no arrest powers. We were the first Metropolitan Government in The United States, since 1963.
