JOB SUMMARY:

This position is responsible for day-to-day management of the IT department for the Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center, including all hardware and software needs.

Finally, this position is responsible for providing technical support for special setups, including installation of servers/network.

1. Audio-Visual Management – The incumbent is responsible for optimizing the equipment for the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office. This requires maintaining the existing equipment and installing new equipment when necessary so that the user has what is needed to support the work being done. From time to time, the incumbent may work with outside contractors to provide the best possible equipment in the shortest amount of time if there are special needs.

2. Project Management – This position is accountable for the special projects undertaken by the Sheriff’s Office, including the bidding of project work, identification of appropriate vendors, and then the oversight of the work being done by vendors through completion of the project. Decisions on vendor choices are collaborative with the Chief Deputy or County IT Director.

3. Database Management – The incumbent is responsible for development of a plan on server and database usage that anticipates problems and the impact of any downtime so that appropriate upgrades can be made in a timely manner. This frequently involves consulting with department heads on future needs, and collaborating on a solution that is agreeable to the department head.

4. Technical Support – This position is the go-to position for support of the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, both to maintain functionality, and also to run it technically in a state of emergency.
