The Position
Correctional Officers maintain and supervise inmates in state Correctional facilities in a controlled humane environment. This position may be at a Maximum Security Prison.
Incumbents perform in a trainee capacity and acquire the knowledge, skills and abilities required in this occupation.
Minimum qualification is to list 2 years of your most recent full time or equivalent work history. Work history can be part time or full time work, military or college experience after high school graduation. "Make sure the FTE column on the right side of the work history section totals 2 years or greater". Although 2 years is the minimum qualification, please list your most recent 10 years of work history and any additional correctional officer related experience. 1 week to 3 months after your application has been reviewed you will be invited to a Physical Fitness testing date. If you pass all events then you will stay the remainder of the day to complete additional pre-hire activities to include background documents, a psychological test, an interview and drug test. You will be contacted as your application reaches the top of the waiting lists. All correspondence will be done through the NVAPPS notification system and the email address that you list on your application. Make sure you have your email settings set to accept email from the internet domain of "doc.nv.gov". Many systems will send doc email to a spam bin and that will keep you from receiving the invitations to test.
