When Sher­iff Mark But­ler took office one of his ini­tia­tives was to increase the recruit­ing of qual­i­fied indi­vid­u­als for the sheriff’s office. With Sher­iff But­ler, being an Army vet­er­an, was famil­iar with the Army PaYS pro­gram and want­ed to part­ner with the Army for the ben­e­fit of the depart­ment and vet­er­an. With this part­ner­ship, the num­ber of qual­i­fied appli­cants should increase, and vet­er­ans would be guar­an­teed an inter­view. After dis­cussing this part­ner­ship with War­ren Coun­ty Human Resources, they also want­ed to part­ner with the Army PaYS pro­gram. On Decem­ber 6, 2022, War­ren Coun­ty Admin­is­tra­tor, Dr. Edwin Daley signed an agree­ment with Army PaYS mak­ing the Coun­ty of War­ren an offi­cial Army PaYS partner.

Per Army PaYS, the pro­gram is designed to help Sol­diers pre­pare for a career after the Army by con­nect­ing them with employ­ers who under­stand the skills, dis­ci­pline, and work eth­ic that mil­i­tary ser­vice mem­bers bring to a busi­ness. This pro­gram is part of a long-term U.S. Army effort to help Sol­diers forge pro­fes­sion­al rela­tion­ships with busi­ness­es and encour­age busi­ness own­ers to look to the Army as a plen­ti­ful and reli­able recruit­ing source.

Since PaYS began in 2000, more than 1020 employ­ers have part­nered with the program.
