Candidates for entry level Local Corrections Officer positions in Michigan must complete a hiring process before appointment as a Local Corrections Officer. This process can include, but is not limited to written tests, interviews, background investigations, drug tests, psychological and physical examinations to determine the fitness and good moral character of a candidate. While each Sheriff’s Office has developed a hiring process which meets its needs, agencies begin with a written examination.
To assist Sheriff’s Offices and test takers, the Michigan Sheriffs' Coordinating and Training Council (MSCTC) has approved Empco, Inc. to conduct a written examination at various locations throughout the State. The result of this examination is accepted by Sheriffs' Offices in the State of Michigan.
Your score, as well as your profile and contact information will be available to Sheriff’s Offices via a secure website. This means that Sheriff’s Offices will use this system to not only retrieve and verify test scores, but also as a recruiting tool. For some, it could be their only source of recruits for positions in their agencies.
Your score from one test is used by all Sheriff’s Offices. Scores for this test for Local Corrections Officer are good for three years.
There is a non-refundable fee of $75.00 to take an examination paid by the candidate.
