Equal Employment Opportunity Policy

The Washington County Sheriff's Office is firmly committed to prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, sex, creed, color, age, religion, national origin, or physical impairment throughout the employment process -- from selection through termination. Each Washington County Sheriff's Office Supervisor is responsible for understanding, communicating, and strictly enforcing this policy.

The Administrative Services Commander will act as the EQUAL EMPLOYMENT COORDINATOR with the primary responsibility for developing appropriate policies and practices for consideration and implementation. All questions regarding the Washington County Sheriff's Office policy and practice in this area should be referred to the Administrative Services Commander.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office will provide equal opportunities for employment and employment conditions for minority persons and women in those areas where such opportunities may exist.
