James Hass called up after our recent interview with the Washoe County Sheriff's Office .  They are looking to fill some positions in the near future and James wants to know  why they're not re-hiring some of the deputies who might have been laid off in recent years ?

I checked back with Deputy Armando Avina about this. He says there have been no deputies who've been laid off due to budget cuts.  Avina says for the past six years deputies have not received pay raises in an effort to avoid lay-offs during the recent budget crunch.
   There has also been a hiring freeze in place as well.
 So the sheriff's office has lost deputies due to retirement and attrition but not layoffs.
   In fact Undersheriff Todd Vinger says they've made about 21 million dollars in cuts in the past five years, again through retirement and attrition.
  They are expecting a wave of additional retirements in the near future, and that is why they are reaching out and looking to fill some positions by hiring new deputies.
  If you're interested you can check out the Washoe County Sheriff's Office website to find out more information and to see whether you might be qualified.   We have a link to their site on mynews4.Com.
