The sheriff's office says the application period opened Wednesday for the deputy sponsorship program.

The program helps economically-disadvantaged residents who want to go into law enforcement.

While attending the academy, selected candidates get a full time job at the sheriff's office as a special worker. The pay is $10/hr.
