Call For Retired Cops To Suit Up To Protect The Courts

The Eighth Judicial District Court is calling on retired and soon to be retired cops to apply for jobs to protect the courts. The Nevada Supreme Court issued an Order that removes a barrier to the employment of retired public employees to fill the deputy marshal positions. The Order clears the way for former cops to work in marshal jobs without adversely affecting their Public Employee Retirement. It is intended to help ease a critical labor shortage of marshals who are tasked with maintain the safety, security and administration of justice for all District Court facilities in Southern Nevada, including the Regional Justice Center. The intent is that former officers (jail detention officers, corrections officers, bailiffs/deputy marshals) who are post certified can continue a law enforcement career with the marshal force and continue to collect their retirement.

Retired or soon to be retired category 1 peace officers interested in applying should complete a bailiff/deputy marshal application from the county website employment section

“We are enthused about the prospect of hiring qualified law enforcement professionals to join in the mission to serve the public and protect the courts,” said District Court Chief Judge David Barker. “This is a good opportunity for retired category 1 peace officers to use their skills to continue a fulfilling law enforcement career while they collect their retirement.”

The labor shortage is attributed to several factors including the requirement for law enforcement training and certification and employment classification of the post. Nevada’s high court also ordered the Eighth Judicial District Court to conduct a classification and compensation study for deputy marshals.

This is one of many creative ways District Court is working to resolve the excessive vacancy problem in the marshal division. District Court is also actively recruiting military veterans to join the marshal force. The court is working with the Las Vegas Urban League, Nevada Partners, the Nevada Department of Employment Training and Rehabilitation and the College of Southern Nevada to sponsor military veterans for the Criminal Justice Academy P.O.S.T certification.

The Nevada Eighth Judicial District Court is the busiest court in Nevada. Fifty-two judges preside over nearly 100,000 criminal, civil and family cases that are filed each year in District Court. The Nevada Eighth Judicial District Court judges and staff continuously work to develop new ideas, maximize efficiencies and improve access to justice.
