The Fulton County Detention Center is looking to hire some motivated employees. We are a 525 bed correctional facility located in Hickman, Kentucky which houses both male and female inmates. We offer competitive wages and a full benefit package (insurance, retirement, life insurance, paid sick days and paid vacation days) for full time employees. We do have some limited part time positions available. We work three main shifts (7a-3p, 3p-11p and 11p-7a) and pay is based on a 40 hour work week. A Deputy Jailer must be at least 21 years of age pursuant to jail regulations and standards. Applicants need to have a valid driver's license, as they may be called upon to drive a county owned vehicle, and will also be subject to a background check. As a Deputy Jailer, your responsibilities would be the custody, safety, security and supervision of the incarcerated inmates at our jail. This would entail booking and releasing of inmates, inmate and cell searches, escorting of prisoners inside the facility, transporting of prisons outside the facility and supervision of the inmates while inside the facility. A Deputy Jailer is under the direct supervision of a Sergeant at our facility.

If you would like more information, please contact Chief Deputy Jeff Johnson at (270) 236-2405.

Applications can be printed online here or picked up in person at the Fulton County Detention Center at 2010 South Seventh Street, Hickman, Kentucky. Completed applications should be turned into Chief Deputy Jeff Johnson during normal business hours (Mon through Friday 7am-3pm). Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you.
