Sheriff Eric Fagan said the sheriff’s office is accepting applications to fill several positions over the next few months. The sheriff’s office has held hiring events and expects to hold more in the future. The recruiting campaign includes advertising, community outreach through local businesses, colleges, local organizations, and universities. It also includes paid and social media.

Fagan said robust recruiting is important to help meet the public safety demands of a booming Fort Bend County.

“While we’re fortunate to have applicants interested in sworn peace officer positions, our biggest needs are in detention and telecommunications,” Fagan said. “Our needs are growing with the county, and we need to keep up by recruiting qualified candidates with a passion to protect and serve.”
