Employment postings change as needed and can be found on the website using the "Career Opportunities" link in the above menu.
The department works cooperatively with other City departments to assure that the services each provides, ranging from the public safety services provided by the Police and Fire Departments to the entertainment/leisure activities provided by the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department and Convention Center, are provided in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Staff coordinates a number of training programs for City employees, processes all incoming employees for payroll purposes, and responds to requests for information and assistance in regard to City employment. The department houses an electronic fingerprint scanner with a direct connection to the State Department of Justice (DOJ) to obtain criminal history checks on new-hires by the City and for referrals from other agencies having contracts with the DOJ.
