To protect the health and safety of our community and staff, many Sutter County offices will be closed to the public starting March 20, 2020 until further notice.


Welcome to the Sutter County Sheriff's Office employment page. Sutter County is primarily a rural community with close proximity to the Sacramento metropolitan area just to the south. We have a diverse community ranging from rural agricultural operations to a modern urban center, Yuba City. This combination of rural and urban environments creates a unique mix of opportunities and complexities for the law enforcement community of our county.

Aside from Yuba City which operates its own police department, the Sutter County Sheriff's Office provides law enforcement services for the remainder of the county, including rural areas and small towns as well as portions of Yuba City that are under County influence and the City of Live Oak which contracts policing services with the County.

Sworn peace officers are assigned to positions as patrol deputies, detectives and command level executives. Correctional officers are assigned to positions providing jail and bailiff services. Non-sworn personnel are assigned to positions in all divisions primarily for dispatch, clerical and administrative support functions.

Volunteers also provide significant value to our operations and are integral to the services we provide to our community. If you are interesting in serving our community as a civilian volunteer in the Sheriff's Office, there are many exciting and interesting opportunities awaiting you that include participation in the Aero-Squadron, Mounted Posse and Sheriff Cadets as well as assignments in public safety programs, sobriety checkpoints, traffic control and various office support duties.
