Friday, September 28, 2012

LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - In two weeks, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department and Lexington County Human Resources Division will conduct a Hiring Fair and Open House between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Wednesday, October 10 in the Squad Room at the Lexington County James R. Metts Law Enforcement Complex, 521 Gibson Road, Lexington.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said he is particularly interested in hiring correctional officers to work at the Lexington County Detention Center.

“I am seeking competent and committed persons who have a passion for serving their fellow human beings,” Metts said. “Working as a correctional officer can be a challenging but rewarding career. Officers have a chance to make a difference in inmates’ lives by helping inmates to change personal behaviors that can lead to their further involvement in criminal activity.”

“Correctional officers receive professional training and career development while working at the Detention Center,” Metts said. “Officers work as members of a team that is dedicated to providing professional law enforcement services that enhance the quality of life for all people in Lexington County.”

A video that depicts a day in the life of a correctional officer at the Detention Center is available for viewing on the Sheriff’s Department Facebook page, Metts said. The video features Master Correctional Officer Tony Ward, who is a Pelion High School graduate and U.S. Marine Corps veteran. Ward has worked at the Detention Center for more than four years.

Citizens who have questions about the Hiring Fair at the Sheriff’s Department or who would like additional information about the event can contact Lexington County Human Resources Recruiter Michael Robbins at his office at (803) 785-8158 or via email at mrobbins@lex-co.com.

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
