DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The Human Resources Department has reviewed and determined that it is necessary to update the Deputy Sheriff I/II, Sheriff’s Sergeant, Sheriff’s Lieutenant, Sheriff’s Captain, and Undersheriff classifications. The review showed that the classes require revision to accurately describe each classification’s job duties, education, and experience. Additionally, there is a need to revise each class to comply with California Assembly Bill 846. Assembly Bill 846 requires that Peace Officer job descriptions deemphasize paramilitary aspects of the job and emphasize community interaction and collaborative problem-solving. Since the Sheriff’s Office has a history of providing total care for victims, witnesses, and the community, these changes appropriately describe the job duties performed in each of these classifications.

After consultation with the Sheriff’s Office, Human Resources has determined that the recommended class specification revisions are needed to accurately reflect job duties and meet the requirements of AB 846.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board could not adopt the revised class specifications and direct Human Resources to conduct further analysis.
