Patrol Ride Along
The best way to learn more about our department is to schedule a ride along with one of our patrol deputies. Not only will you see first hand what a deputy sheriff does on a regular basis in patrol, but you will have a one on one experience where you can ask questions. Complete the below linked form and contact any one of our patrol area stations to schedule your ride along.
Every new deputy sheriff will serve within one of our custody facilities prior to being assigned to patrol. We encourage all prospective applicants to participate in at least one jail tour during the application process. Both jail facilities are modern, clean, and professional working environments. You can contact the Pre-Trial Detention Facility in Ventura (805) 654-3335 or the Todd Road Jail in Santa Paula (805) 933-8501.
