Recruitment Unit, CDCR Office of Peace Officer Selection

To kick off the “New Year, New Career” campaign, the Office of Peace Officer Selection (OPOS) is hosting one-stop hiring events to recruit correctional officers in areas remote to the OPOS Testing Offices.

Applicants who register will attend a recruitment presentation including a question-and-answer session, have the opportunity to apply onsite, and if qualified, complete the written examination, all in one day.

Locations for future events may include desert communities like Brawley/El Centro and Blythe and northern locations including Crescent City and Susanville. In all locations institution recruitment teams will be relied on to provide information to potential candidates about the Department, correctional peace officer careers, promotional opportunities, and retirement.

OPOS is on track to hire a total of 1,840 new youth and correctional staff in the current fiscal year. Based on current projections another 1,840 new officers will be needed next year to keep pace with attrition.
