Once we receive your results from the testing vendor, we will contact you to schedule an oral board. This is a formal interview in front of a panel of King County court protection deputies and/or sergeants. The panel will evaluate you on the following criteria: communication skills, background, community involvement, experience, integrity, motivation, interpersonal skills and problem solving.
Civil Service Eligibility List
Based on the combined scores of the written test and the oral board, as well as veterans preference points if applicable, qualified candidates will be merged onto the existing eligibility lists. This list determines the order in which background investigations are conducted.
Our thorough background investigation includes a look at your criminal history record, employment history, personal references, driving history, credit history and an evaluation of psychological suitability. KCSO detectives will conduct the investigation, which now includes a home visit. Personal references and current and previous employers will be contacted. Once the background investigation is complete, you will take a polygraph test and you will undergo psychological testing and an evaluation by a department psychologist.
Final Interview and Medical Exam
If you pass the background process, you will have a final interview with the hiring captain. Upon successful completion of that interview, you will get the call for a job offer contingent on passing a basic medical exam that confirms your fitness for duty.
While some background investigations take longer than others and depending on your position on the eligibility list, you can expect the time from the point your background investigation begins to the time you are offered a job to take around eight weeks.
Note If you are a LEOFF I or LEOFF II retiree, it may be possible to draw your LEOFF benefits while employed in this position. The KCSO Court Protection Unit Marshals can pay into the Public Safety Employees Retirement System (PSERS). Call the Washington State Department of Retirement Systems (DRS) for clarification. If you are a PERS I or PERS II retiree, you may be able to work a number of hours and still receive your retirement benefits, but you should check with DRS.
