We offer a starting salary up to $42.53/hour ($88,765/year), a cash allowance of approximately $600/month added to the starting pay, and a competitive total compensation package, including*:
  • Flex work schedule and teleworking options, upon successful completion of training

As the full-time Sheriff’s Fiscal Analyst, you will develop, monitor, and manage the budgets of multiple operational units. This includes the preparation of projections and other financial reports/recommendations, conducting operational data and cost analysis, developing and administering grants and contracts, managing Requests for Proposals (RFP’s), and preparing Board agenda items and special presentations.

The part-time Sheriff’s Fiscal Analyst position will be dedicated to two distinct programs, the Sonoma County Auto Theft Task Force (SONCATT) and the Cal-ID Program.
