Protecting the community from the inside.

Find your fit Discover a rewarding place to work.

At CCSO, we are committed to promoting and maintaining public safety through effective correctional and reentry practices. Corrections deputies provide intake and release services for inmates, maintain order, and provide security at the Clark County Main Jail and Jail Work Center. Corrections deputies are responsible for the around-the-clock operation of the jail and must be available to work all shifts – day, swing and grave – as assigned, including weekends and holidays.

In addition to booking and releasing inmates and maintaining security in all areas of the jail, duties include supervising work assigned to inmates, performing safety and security searches, and writing reports on inmate rule violations and general conduct issues. Most assignments will involve supervising male and female inmates, ranging from minimum to maximum security levels.
