Clark County offers sign-on bonuses for corrections deputies 


Deputies hired into the corrections branch of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office are able to receive up to a $25,000 sign-on bonus. 

A news release from the sheriff’s office stated lateral hires who have current experience working as a corrections officer would receive an $8,000 bonus on their first paycheck, followed by $8,500 upon the successful completion of probation, and another $8,500 after three years of employment. 

Individuals who do not have current experience working as a corrections officer can receive a $10,000 sign-on bonus. The new hires will receive $2,000 on their first paycheck and $8,000 after the successful completion of the CJTC academy, FTO process and probation.

“Corrections deputies provide crucial services supporting community members who are housed in the jail,” stated the release. “The mission of corrections is to promote and maintain public safety through effective correctional and reentry practices with a vision to help inmates successfully re-enter our community through a comprehensive level of supervision and care.”

The release stated the Corrections Deputies Guild and the Enforcement Deputies Guild are bargained separately. The enforcement guild is still in the bargaining process with Clark County.
