MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department is looking to hire new detention officers and deputies.

He said it’s a great way to enter the world of law enforcement right here in Lauderdale County.

“Regardless of the economy, it’s fairly safe and good place to work because of the benefits, pay and retirement,” Calhoun said. “We are looking for individuals who want a career, not only in the law enforcement side of the house, but in our detention facility.”
