Working Environment

Experience the Sheriff’s Office work environment first-hand

The purpose of a patrol ride-along, touring the Ada County Jail, or plugging-in with our 911 Communications Dispatch Center is to encourage community involvement with the Ada County Sheriff’s Office and to educate the public on the challenges, risks, and rewards of the ACSO’s role in the community. The best way to see if a career in law enforcement suits you  is to experience the environment first-hand.
