San Diego Sheriff’s Department hosts career fair at Miramar College training facility
MIRAMAR (KUSI) – If you’re interested in law enforcement, particularly the Sheriff’s Department, the Sheriff is holding a career fair Saturday. It’s at the Miramar College Law Enforcement Training Facility from 10 to 1.
We were there today for a preview. And we watched the rigorous physical training the cadets were going through. Your physical fitness is very much a part of qualifying for the academy. The physical aspects of the job are just as important as the mental.
Corporal Ysidro Granillo is a Sheriff’s Recruiter. He told us, “We’re generally looking for someone who can run three miles in a reasonable time, 10 minute miles. We’re looking for someone who can do push-ups, sit-ups, who can lift their own body weight, that’s what we’re looking for.”
Civilian positions you will learn about Saturday include dispatcher, crime lab tech, and mental health clinician.
Dispatcher Tawna Lichtenthaler told us, “If you passion for helping the public and want to be around law enforcement, be a dispatcher.”
Ten to one Saturday, The Regional Law Enforcement Training center at Miramar College. You’ll come in of Gold Coast and be directed to a courtyard.
