For those driven to make a difference,


Effective July 3, 2023, the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office has a new system for calculating pay - a step plan.  This includes a raise for all current employees as well as higher starting pay for newly hired patrol deputies, correctional officers, and civilian employees. 


The starting pay is now $19.71 per hour for correctional officers and $20.67 per hour for patrol deputies.  The plan also outlines step increases for an employee’s years of service with the agency.


Additionally, the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office offers education pay and SWAT pay!  These are additional supplements on top of one's hourly rate.  Education pay is based on the amount of college education a BCSO employee has achieved and SWAT pay is paid to current SWAT Team members for their commitment to the high demands required to be part of this elite team.
