Our mentoring program is completely voluntary.
After completing the background packet sent to you through eSoph and a preliminary Detective review of that information, you will have the option to participate in the Mentoring Program.
Mentors are experienced deputies, detectives, or sergeants. Mentors have volunteered to be your contact person within the department. They can provide assistance, guidance, and perspective during the hiring, academy, and training processes.
Your mentor is paired with you and remains your mentor until you complete the field training (PTO) phase. Your mentor also will take you on a ride-along anywhere in the county.
It is an invaluable asset to receive advice, information, and encouragement from an objective department member who wants to see you succeed. Please note that your mentor is not an evaluator.
