It is proposed to amend section 7.05(b) of the current Rules & Regulations that relate to written test requirements for open-competitive Deputy Sheriff applicants. The proposed amendment reads:

  • WRITTEN TESTS. Unless otherwise specified, a written test will be used to establish an initial roster of applicants. Written tests shall be designed to show familiarity of applicants with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary in the class positions to which they seek appointment, the range of their general knowledge, or their general educational attainments, mental alertness, aptitudes, and skills. The Board may prepare and administer written tests, or it may contract the preparation and administration of the tests to an independent person or company, as the Board chooses. Written tests will be scored on a one hundred (100) point scale. Except by special action of the Board, applicants who score below seventy (70) on the written test will not be certified. Based on their tests scores, applicants will be grouped in bands according to the following schedule:

  2. Written test score of 80-89.99————– Band “B”
  3. Written test score of 70-79.99————– Band “C”
