Franklin County Sheriff


Deputy Sheriff in Corrections

The Sheriff's Office is building an eligibility list for a 2015 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.

To Schedule a Test:

To fill out an application and schedule a test, go to, select "Corrections Jobs" and sign up for the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.

All correspondence will be sent to the e-mail address provided to NTN. Therefore, it is critical that applicants provide a current e-mail address that is checked regularly. Applicants will be notified by e-mail of their scheduled PAT date and time. The date and time for the PAT has not been scheduled yet.

Testing will be held open until enough applicants have passed to create an eligibility pool. An announcement will be posted on this page approximately two (2) weeks prior to the last test date being administered. All testing through NTN must be complete by February 26, 2016.

Only Deputy candidates who have been notified of successful completion of the PAT may access the Sheriff's Office Deputy employment application below.
