Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The job duties of a Community Services Officer at the Sheriff’s Office are at a less complex level than the Sheriff’s Tech I/II, and involves under general supervision assisting the public, sworn and non-sworn, and other personnel by performing a variety of public relations, technical, and clerical duties, related to law enforcement functions including receipt and processing of related reports.

The Sheriff’s Tech I/II under general supervision, performs a variety of responsible and complex clerical and technical tasks related to processing legal documents: human resources services and documents in the Sheriff’s Office; preparing and maintaining relevant financial and other records on activities, receipts and disbursements; disseminating information from files as mandated by law; booking; and records maintenance.

The major distinction between the two classes is that the CSO performs the duties of a general assistant mainly to the public. The Sheriff’s Tech I/II performs at a higher level and assists both the public and the County with more complex legal, human resources, financial, booking and records maintenance tasks.

The CSO position is currently vacant, so this action will not adversely impact workload or personnel. The Sheriff's Office has met with Human Resources and they agree with our request to add the Sheriff's Technician I/II position and delete the CSO position.
