Raleigh County Sheriff's Dept. is hiring


BECKLEY, W.Va. (WVVA) The Raleigh County Sheriff's Dept. is currently looking for three qualified candidates to join their team. 

Anyone interested in applying must be 21 years of age and possess a GED or high school diploma. Candidates meeting those requirements are subject to a drug test, background check, physical fitness test, and writing test. 

According to Sheriff Scott Van Meter, the dept. is not just looking for anyone, but applicants with a solid character and a passion for serving the public. 

"It's not a job where everybody is in love with you. You have to have a strong character and be a hard worker. It's a lot of thankless nights so you truly have to have a passion for it."

Sheriff Van Meter said applications must be in by the end of business on March 9, 2018.
