8th Judicial District
The 8th Judicial District Attorney's Office is hiring an Investigator.  Positions in this class will usually perform most of the duties required of the Investigator II  but are not expected to function at the same skill level and usually exercise less independent direction and judgment on matters related to work procedures and methods.  Work is usually supervised while in progress and fits a structured and established pattern.  Generally, changes in procedure exceptions are explained in detail as they arise.  Under the flexible staffing concept, positions assigned to the Investigator I class may reasonably expect to progress to the II level with training, experience, and satisfactory job performance.  Applications must meet the following qualifications: four years of increasingly complex experience in law enforcement, including investigative responsibilities; equivalent to a Bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university with major course work in criminal justice, police science, or a related field; possession of, or ability to obtain, an appropriate, valid Colorado driver's license; and POST certification. An offer of employment is contingent upon the successful completion of a pre-employment drug screen.  As marijuana is an illegal substance under federal law, testing positive for marijuana (medical or otherwise) or any other substance for which the county tests, will result in the contingent offer of employment being revoked.  A successful completion of the drug screen is defined as obtaining a negative result.
