The following is a message from Sheriff Reader regarding employment opportunities with the Pike County Sheriff’s Office.

“I am searching for individuals who are certified peace officers interested in being a full time Deputy Sheriff for the Pike County Sheriff’s Office. You can apply online on our website or apply in person. See dispatch for an application. I seek individuals who are public service oriented and will serve each member of the Pike County Community with the upmost professional service and regard and car for them as you would your own family. I prefer Pike county Residents and current or prior military, however, every application will be viewed and experience will be evaluated. I will check current and past service with any agency/business that you may have been employed. You will also be screened by an interview panel and be subject to a drug screen, physical, and a CVSA exam. Please if you are not completely dedicated for the good of the Sheriff’s office and the citizens we serve, you may not want to apply. I expect 8 hours work for 8 hours pay. and a conviction of “we can make a difference” in any member of my staff, including myself. A professional standard that exceeds the norm. Please don’t expect the ordinary, because I do not as the Sheriff.”
