 Dallas County has a dedicated, diverse workforce who work under the direction of the Dallas County Commission.  Turnover is minimal, many employees are long-term, and most retire with 25 years of service or greater.  Growth continues in the workforce as the Commission and leaders in the Selma-Dallas County community strive to bring new services to the citizens of Dallas County and surrounding areas. The opening of the Juvenile Detention Center in August 2008 is the latest result of those united efforts.  Services offered by the Juvenile Detention Centers now reach to Perry, Pickens, Green, and Wilcox counties with plans to extend the service area.

It is that vision which drives the Mission of the Human Resources Department which is to attract and retain employees with a heart and mind for public service.  We achieve this goal by developing HR programs and employee benefits to meet the needs of our staff, while fostering relationships with our customers and employees to create an excellent work-life environment. 

Human Resources is responsible for  the administrative services of staffing, employee relations and development, compensation, employee benefits, payroll, safety, risk management, and regulatory compliance. 

In times of employee recruitment, we are continuously seeking employees who have a strong work ethic and can bring new ideas to our organization.  We will post positions on this website as they occur and invite you to complete the Employment Application in the sidebar for specific postings, at that time.
