The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office is looking for qualified applicants for numerous open positions in the agency and is hosting its first-ever virtual career fair on Saturday, January 21, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The virtual career fair is being held on vFairs, a virtual, hybrid & in-person events platform that helps organizations of all sizes, industries, and regions conduct memorable online events to achieve business results.

According to a release, interested participants can register here for the virtual career fair in advance. Those who register by January 21 can access the career fair materials for 30 days following the live event. 

Recruiters with the Sheriff's Office will host a second in-person “Not Your Ordinary” Career Fair on Saturday, January 28, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Stephen Saboda Training Facility, 3901 Tiger Bay Road, Daytona Beach. The in-person event will allow candidates to tour the Training Facility and view scheduled demos from Air One, SWAT, Bomb, K-9, and drone teams. Candidates may also have the chance to interview with recruiters and even receive a conditional offer of employment on the same day.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Stephen Saboda Training Facility, which opened in April 2021, is designed for candidates who are brand-new to law enforcement. The Academy puts recruits through a comprehensive, six-month program that features classroom instruction and realistic scenario training to provide a solid foundation for a successful career. Academy recruits earn a starting salary and full benefits while they attend training, with a bump in pay and a $5,000 sign-on bonus available upon graduation.

High school students, college students, experienced professionals, veterans, and anyone looking for an exciting career change are encouraged to apply to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office; anyone looking for information on the benefits of a career that makes a difference in the community is welcome to attend either event.

“If you are the kind of person who takes pride in your work and loves making a difference in people’s lives, we have the opportunity of a lifetime here,” said Volusia Sheriff Mike Chitwood. “It is not always an easy job, but if I could go back to the beginning and get a chance to sign up for an opportunity like this, I would do it in a heartbeat.”
