The Douglas County Sheriff's Department will hire five new deputies under a U.S. Department of Justice grant that gives preference to veterans.
Douglas County has already filled two positions and plans to hire three more. The program gives veterans an advantage when applying for the positions. It makes the playing field a bit more even because veterans can be out of the civilian work force for four, six maybe 10 years so the program offers an advantage for that reason.
