FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – The Fayette County Commission approved a $5,000 signing bonus for experienced law enforcement officers who want to join the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department.
The starting annual salary is $33,391 per year with a bonus after your probation period. Sheriff Mike Fridley says “it’s hard to find qualified candidates that are interested in law enforcement. A lot of people don’t want to be police officers now of days; the pay is not great, people don’t have respect for law enforcement. A lot of law enforcement brothers and sisters are getting killed in the line of duty. It’s a dangerous job, and it’s dangerous here in Fayette County.”
If you’re interested in an application, you can stop by the Sheriff’s Department Office on Monday.
