Sheriff Deputies are required to attend the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy, at the department's expense, for the WLEA basic course for officer certification within one year of being hired. This course is 8 weeks long for detention and 12 weeks for patrol. Persons currently certified, either in Wyoming or other states, may not need to attend all the basic academy courses. This depends on the length and type of academy attended, dates of law enforcement employment and other factors. However, Wyoming Peace Officer's Standards and Training (POST) will require certified out-of-state applicants to pass a challenge exam and/or other requirements to achieve Wyoming Certification, as well as attendance at specified courses at a minimum.

The Laramie County Sheriffs' Office has no requirement or obligation to hire any individual. Disqualification for employment consideration may occur at any phase of the hiring process. Laramie County is a drug-free and equal opportunity employer.
