Washington County is still looking to hire more jailers. At this week’s Washington County Board of Supervisors meeting the hire of two jailers was approved. Washington County Sheriff Jerry Dunbar said, they are still looking for female applicants. To apply people must be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma. Dunbar adds the starting rate is $14.88 per hour based on experience.

Last December the supervisors unanimously approved a step plan for local jailers’ wages and in March they approved an increase pay rates for jailers in Washington County to be competitive with area counties’ rates.
