Terrific benefits, opportunities for advancement, and a chance to be part of the largest fully accredited sheriff’s office in the nation are just a few of the advantages that come with a career with Broward Sheriff's Office.

The scheduled opening of a new Broward Sheriff's Office jail in the first quarter of 2003 has helped create openings for at least 250 professional positions in detention.

“It’s important to have a work force at the Broward Sheriff's Office that closely mirrors the varied mix of people in the communities we serve,” says Sheriff Ken Jenne. “One of the ways that we can accomplish that is by actively recruiting not only on a national level, but also by reaching out to the people of South Florida.”

The Broward Sheriff's Office operates the one of the largest local jail system in the U.S, processing more than 70,000 detainees annually through its four facilities. BSO is also the largest fully accredited sheriff’s office in the nation, helping more than 460,000 residents in fifteen districts.
