Sheriff of Monroe County


PURPOSE


The purpose of this directive is to establish guidelines for the transfer and administration of examination devices used in the promotional process of personnel within the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. This may include, but is not limited to, written examinations and oral interviews.


DISCUSSION


The promotional process is of vital interest and concern to both the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and the member. The promotion process brings about recognition, personal satisfaction and added responsibility. For these reasons the process must be standardized and provide a fair and equitable means of advancement for all members who participate. In order for the process to be successful it must show validity, utility and minimum adverse impact.


POLICY


Although the Sheriff's Office strongly supports a policy of promotion from within, nothing in this policy is intended to prohibit Division commanders and other supervisors from reviewing the pool of external applicants prior to making selection recommendation to the Sheriff

.

The administration retains the right to deviate from part or all of this selection procedure on a case-by-case basis, if to do so is determined to be in the best interest of the Agency or the community.
