2. LAUTENBERG AMENDMENT: This position authorizes the incumbent to carry a firearm. Any person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence cannot lawfully possess a firearm or ammunition [Title 18, USC, Section 922 (g) 9]. A "misdemeanor crime of domestic violence" is generally defined under the statute as any offense involving the use or attempted use of physical force, or the threatened use of a deadly weapon, committed by the victim's current or former domestic partner, parent, or guardian. The term "convicted", as defined in the statute excludes any person whose conviction has been expunged, set-aside, or pardoned, or any person whose civil rights have been restored unless the pardon, expungement, or restoration of civil rights expressly prohibits the possession of firearms or ammunition. Candidates who have been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence within the meaning of the referenced statute are not qualified for this position. Candidates under consideration will be required to certify whether they have ever been convicted of such an offense. False or fraudulent information provided by candidates is criminally punishable by fine or imprisonment (Title 18, USC, Section 1001).
3. MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS: Candidate selected must meet and maintain medical requirements for law enforcement officers. This includes a pre-employment physical examination and periodic physical examinations throughout the incumbent's career as a law enforcement officer.
4. DRUG TESTING REQUIREMENTS: Candidate selected may be subject to random drug testing.
If selected, you may be required to serve a probationary or trial period as applicable to appointment type.
Additional selections may be made from this vacancy announcement to fill identical vacancies that occur subsequent to this announcement.
