Do you want to help make a difference in your community by helping offenders become productive members of the community? Are you looking for a career in providing public safety? Then don't miss your chance to apply to be an Adult Probation and Parole Agent!

Adult Probation and Parole Agents work directly with offenders who are on probation or parole in the community. They monitor compliance with conditions set by the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole and work with offenders to help them become law-abiding members of the community. That may include helping offenders line up schooling, jobs and housing.

Apply at statejobs.utah.gov by March 27. 

The ideal candidate has at least 18 months experience as a Correctional Officer or Law Enforcement Officer, is LEO certified, can pass the Special Function Officer (SFO) physical testing exit standard or be currently employed as a Law Enforcement Officer.

If you currently do not have 18 months experience as a Correctional Officer or Law Enforcement Officer we will accept a bachelor's degree from an accredited university in place of the working experience.

This recruitment will be used to fill AP&P Agent positions for approximately one year in various locations around the State of Utah. The entry hourly rate for Agent is $21.77.

Internal UDC employees Salary will be based on the Promotional Process of a 11% increase. (If the increase brings you above the top of the range, your increase will stop at the top of the range.)

Non-UDC candidates hourly rate will be determined by years of experience.

Agents have a moderately flexible work schedule. Office visits with offenders occur Monday through Friday; home visits occur at various times of day and day of week to effectively manage their caseload. Agents may have a take-home car they share with their partner and are required to work at least 1 night per week and 1 weekend day per month. Depending on work location, some agents also have on-call responsibilities. You will also work side by side with our team of professionals who are dedicated to ensuring the public's safety.
