Franklin County Sheriff


Deputy Sheriff

The Sheriff's Office is building an eligibility list for a 2017 and/or 2018 class of Deputy Sheriffs. Interested candidates must register with the National Testing Network, sign up for a testing date, and complete the pre-employment test and personal history questionnaire (PHQ). Candidates who pass the pre-employment examination will be contacted directly by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office and scheduled for a pre-employment physical abilities test (PAT). The PHQ will be reviewed for applicants who pass both the pre-employment examination and the PAT. . Applicants are reminded that providing false information at any point in the process is grounds for removal from the hiring process.

Although NTN allows candidates to test every six (6) months, candidate scores are only accepted by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office once per calendar year.
