Civil Service

Stevens County Civil Service is charged with the recruitment, testing, hiring, eligibility and promotion of all Sheriff’s Office Employees under RCW 41.14.  The process provides for merit based testing of eligible candidates and establishment of eligibility lists for each position.  We are committed to providing the best candidates for potential hire by the Sheriff’s Office.

The Board of Stevens County Commissioners appoints citizens of the county to service on the Civil Service Commission.  Each commissioner serves a six-year term without compensation and cannot hold any salaried public office, or engage in county employment, other than the commission duties during their term.
