EMPLOYMENT-how long are applications kept on file? The Sheriff's Office accepts applications for employment throughout the year. Applications will normally remain on file and active for six(6) months from the date they are submitted.
Applications will only be examined or reviewed whenever there is a position open and vacant that must be filled. Application meeting requirements for the position will be granted a preliminary interview before the Sheriff and the office Department Heads. The Sheriff makes the final determination on all new hires.
FINGERPRINTS-How can I be fingerprinted for work/job purposes? The Sheriff's Department
Warrant of Arrest-How do I find out if I have a warrant for my arrest? What do I do if I have one? The Sheriff's Office maintains many Warrants of Arrest issued by the District Court and Circuit Court. All of these warrants constitute public records under the Freedom of Information Act. Any person can obtain information on arrest warrants pertaining to himself or herself or any other person by placing phone calls to the sheriff's Office. Such information as the date of the warrant, charge(s)specified on the warrant,bond amount, and issuing court can be obtained.
Many arrest warrants are served by deputies working in the field, and the constable either during vehicle stops or by visiting the last known home address or work address of the person named in the warrant. Other warrants are served when people voluntarily surrender themselves to the Sheriff's Office after learning a warrant exists for their arrest.
Most warrants will have a bond specified by the court that a person in custody is required to post before being released. Other warrants are "No Bond" warrants and the person must remain in custody until appearing before a Judge for futher proceedings.
On those warrants that have a bond amount specified, the Sheriff's Office generally will not accept or approve an O/R Bond (release on own recognizance) or a property bond.
Misdermeanor arrest warrants may be served anywhere in the State of Mississippi. Felony Arrest Warrants are extraditable from anywhere within the United States.
Any person wanting information about an arrest warrant or wish to take care of an Active Warrant should contact the Sheriff's Office. We will make every effort to make a reasonable accommodation to allow the person to satisfy the warrant within the boundaries of the law and department policy.
