You may view jobs and obtain a paper employment application form at the Human Resources office or by viewing the employment opportunities section. Applications will be accepted for open positions only.  You can email completed applications to Human Resources 

PLEASE NOTE: If you are applying for ANY position in the Taylor County Sheriff's Office (TCSO) (deputy, jailer, 911 dispatcher, records clerk, etc.):

You MUST complete the TCSO Cover Page AND the Personal History Statement (PHS), in addition to the Taylor County Employment Application before your application will be accepted.
