The Jeffco Sheriff’s Detention Services Division is converting 15 deputy positions assigned to the county jail into 15 civilian detention specialists.
“These are not new positions. We are short-staffed and having to pay overtime to deputies to fill vacant positions,” said Division Chief Patricia Mundell.
Mundell said the move will reduce overtime and get the needed positions filled faster. Detention specialists are uniformed civilians who work at the county jail but have limited contact with inmates. They are not sworn sheriff’s deputies.
