§7-14B-12. Noncompetitive examination for filling vacancy;
Whenever there are urgent reasons for filling a vacancy in any
position of correctional officer and there is no list of persons
eligible for appointment after a competitive examination, the
appointing sheriff may nominate a person to the civil service
commission for noncompetitive examination; and if such nominee
shall be certified by the commission as qualified, after such
noncompetitive examination and a medical examination, he may be
appointed provisionally to fill such vacancy until a selection and
appointment can be made after competitive examination in the manner
prescribed in section eleven of this article; but the provisional
appointment shall not continue for a longer period than three
months, nor shall successive provisional appointments be made to
the same position, under the provisions of this section.
