Advancement Prospects

Bailiffs can advance to many careers in the area of law enforcement. Because most bailiffs are appointed by the sheriff's office, they remain under the supervision of the sheriff. Bailiffs can often move into supervisory roles within the sheriff's department when they are prepared to end their work as bailiffs. Bailiffs can move laterally and become deputies focusing on something other than court security, or they can move up to become second-in-command or even sheriff. Additional training and experience are needed to move up to higher positions. Other possibilities include correctional officer and supervisory police officer. The many duties that a bailiff performs are an excellent preparation for most all other positions in law enforcement.
