ORISKANY, NY-- The Oneida County Sheriff's Office has seven deputy positions open.

According to Sheriff Rob Maciol, some of the open positions stem from people retiring or people leaving for other opportunities. He said three of the seven positions were recently created to keep county social service caseworkers safe during home visits.

In order to be considered for an open position, candidates must pass a written and a physical exam. But Maciol said more than 60 percent of the candidates often fail the physical fitness requirements.

For the candidates who pass both of those exams, they must also pass a background check, a psychological exam and a polygraph test.

The entire process can take six months before attending training, but Maciol said it's necessary to get the best person for the job.

Once an officer has successfully completed training, the starting salary is around $47,000.

The next exam date is Sept. 15.
