BECKLEY, W.Va. (WVVA) - The Raleigh County Sheriff’s Dept. is looking for a few good men and women.

The department had three positions available but filled one of the jobs on Monday following the return of Deputy Steven Fry.

“It’s a great job. Good benefits. Good Retirement. And good health benefits. It’s a great place to work and the people here are amazing,” said Deputy Fry on his decision to return.

According to Sheriff J.C. Canaday, his department has a lot to offer potential candidates, including a new building, state-of-the-art equipment, and a raise that takes effect on July 1st, bringing entry level officers up to at least $48,000 a year.

“This job really gives you the opportunity to stretch out and affect change. So many people are concerned about the city, the county, and the state. This is really the type of job that allows you to affect change.”

Sheriff Canaday said there is also a $5,000 sign on bonus for men and women who have served as a law enforcement officer in the past and have kept up their certification.

Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 45, possess a high school diploma or GED, and pass a written and physical test.

Sheriff Canaday said applications will be taken up until June 9, 2023.

Applications may be picked up at the Sheriff’s dept.
