A Riverside County Sheriff’s Department recruitment drive to fill numerous correctional deputy positions will be held Saturday in Riverside, and officials said applicants who meet initial criteria can expect to begin the background check process almost immediately.

“Department employees will be on-site to provide career information, and assist anyone interested in a career as a correctional deputy,” according to an agency statement.

The “Correctional Deputy Expedited Hiring Event” is scheduled from 7 a.m. to noon at the Ben Clark Public Safety Training Center, 16791 Davis Ave.

Corrections personnel, who are sworn deputies, staff the county’s five detention facilities.

Those prospects prepared to proceed with meeting baseline qualifications will be invited to take written exams and go through physical agility tests on the spot.

“Applicants passing both can begin the background check process in one day,” according to the sheriff’s department.
