CHEYENNE, Wyo. — At the request of Sheriff Brian Kozak and the administrative staff of the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office, Laramie County commissioners approved a $5,000 sign-on bonus for detention deputies.
Candidates selected as detention deputies will now receive a $5,000 hiring bonus.
The starting pay for someone with no experience, when you add in holiday pay and briefing time, totals up to around $62,000 a year. Applicants with prior experience can start out making a total of almost $74,000 a year.
The minimum age to apply to be a detention deputy is 18. If an 18-year-old is hired, they can retire at age 38.
