One Badge. Limitless Opportunities.

Welcome to the Volusia Sheriff’s Office online application process!

The Volusia Sheriff’s Office is a drug free workplace and an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to a diverse workforce. Veterans' preference is provided to qualified applicants pursuant to Federal and State law. 

The Volusia Sheriff’s Office participates in E-Verify, an Internet-based system of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Social Security Administration that allows us to determine an employee's eligibility to work in the United States. Click on the links to see the E-Verify Notice of Participation and Right To Work Posters in English and Spanish.

REMEMBER!  Make sure your application describes, in detail, the duties of each of the jobs you list. Begin with your present or most recent job and work backwards consecutively to reflect at least ten (10) consecutive years of experience. Count each promotion as a separate job. Be sure to include all relevant details regarding the job(s) you've worked.  

An attached resume is not a substitute for the required information on the application. 

Note to Former Volusia Sheriff’s Office Employees: Former Volusia Sheriff’s Office employees who were terminated for cause are not eligible for re-hire. This includes employees who were involuntarily terminated, resigned in lieu of termination, and those employees who resigned without notice. Former employees who were terminated during a probationary period may be considered (on a case-by-case basis) for re-hire, but not to the previous District/Section.

"Not everyone wants to go into law enforcement, and not everyone is cut out for it. But for me, it has been the most rewarding and satisfying way to spend more than three decades. The only way to understand the pride you feel while wearing the badge of the Volusia Sheriff’s Office is to sign up and join us. I hope someone out there will see this message and realize we have the opportunity of a lifetime here."
Sheriff Mike Chitwood
