Process for Hiring: Deputy Sheriff, Lewis & Clark County
The Lewis & Clark County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) uses the "Montana Law Enforcement Consortium" to hire deputies. The first step is for the candidate to fill out the "MTLETC" registration packet, available online or at http://www.mtletc.org/, pay the nominal processing fee to test ($35.00 Non-refundable). Next the candidate will need to go to one of the testing locations in Montana where testing is conducted several times a year. Both a written and physical fitness test will be given.
Upon passing the written and physical fitness test, the candidates name and contact information is added to the consortium list for 18-months. A candidate can pick and choose which agencies s/he would like to be considered for.
The LCSO will send out a (Statewide or Nationwide) teletype to all law enforcement agencies indicating a vacancy for the sworn deputy position. Individuals currently employed as sworn officers/deputies can apply without being listed on the consortium.
To learn more about MTLETC or to register please go to http://www.mtletc.org/.
When the Sheriff’s office hires a new deputy
We open the position to those who are registered and tested through the consortium (see above). Applicants will then fill out a POST application. (See below)
If you have already registered, and passed the required testing through the consortium, you are automatically added to the Montana Law Enforcement Consortium List and will be notified when a position with the Lewis & Clark County Sheriff's Office becomes available. At that time you can then fill out a Lewis & Clark County Employment Application. (See below)
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Lewis & Clark County Sheriff's Deputy.
