No responses to Dave's post? I swear he's not too horrid of a boss
Actually, he lives down the road from me and is a dear friend, so I can't pick on him too much.
Franklin County is a large, very busy county if you're looking for a job with lots of action and plenty of big, challenging dogs.

Chuck, I think I'd stick with Idaho! I have a friend who lives in the Snake River area of Idaho. I looked into moving there once. What a beautiful state!

Ohio has lots of pluses and its been home to me all my life, but Columbus isn't the most beautiful part of it all.

Yes, but can you do arithmetic? Sorry, I'm still wiping away tears of laughter over the minimum requirements.

I wish our job postings had some of those requirements listed. That's great...I hope it doesn't exclude too many people from being able to apply. I especially like the "ability to read and write common vocabulary" part of it. Basic math is a plus in this line of work.

I don't think Dave gets on this list very often, but I'm pretty sure that there is a current posting for a position. They would love to get an experienced ACO apply. And there's lots less snow in Central Ohio than NE Ohio! Trust me on that, I grew up in Mentor in Lake County.
Try calling 614-462-3400 and ask them for the phone number for Human Resources or just ask them what time the latest job posting closes.

Sean, its been nearly 10 years since I worked for FCAC, but they do investigate dog fighting with the help of a Sheriff's Special Investigations Unit. Cruelty is sometimes handled by supervisors, but Deputy Dog Wardens do not have to investigate cruelty(its a union job so there's lots the union says you don't have to do). There is a county humane society that is supposed to deal with the cruelty.
Its a large department, I think they have close to 20 deputy dog wardens. They do not carry firearms. Mostly urban/suburban, a wee bit of rural areas.
