News from BSO


Tremendous benefits, great pay, nearly infinite advancement opportunities, and a chance to be part of the largest fully accredited sheriff’s office in the nation are just a few reasons why hundreds of men and women are expected to attend a career open house this Wednesday at the Broward Sheriff's Office.

BSO operates one of the largest local jail systems in the United States, processing more than 70,000 detainees each year and a new, state-of-the-art women’s facility is slated to open by early next year. As the Broward Sheriff's Office expands, so do the rewarding career opportunities for those who have what it takes to earn the five-pointed, gold star badge of a BSO Deputy Sheriff.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens at least 19-years old, have a high school diploma or GED, have a valid drivers license, and have no criminal convictions involving perjury or false statements.

Among the benefits that BSO deputies enjoy are paid training, affordable medical and dental coverage options, a fully funded pension, college tuition reimbursement, free access to a first-class workout facility, and much more.

Learn more about a career as a BSO deputy –or other exciting opportunities- on Wednesday, August 7, 2002 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Ron Cochran Public Safety Complex, 2601 West Broward Boulevard in Ft. Lauderdale (just west of I-95 from the Broward Blvd. exit).
