A code enforcement officer investigates building standards and land usage to ensure that municipal and county laws for such works are followed. Code enforcement officers should be knowledgeable about the housing and zoning ordinances of their municipality, as well as the requirements for property maintenance.

These officers can also investigate the abandonment of vehicles, as these also fall under the category of maintaining the quality of the municipality. By ensuring that these requirements and provisions are followed, code enforcement officers protect the health, safety and welfare of the public.

Duties

In addition to inspection and investigation of properties and buildings, code enforcement officers determine the nature of environmental or health hazards, nuisance violations and unsafe building conditions. When this has been determined, code enforcement officers issue permits or citations in accordance with the regulations of the municipality. In addition, code enforcement officers must understand and comply with state and federal regulations on land usage, zoning, business permits and building access.

Requirements

According to the BLS, building and construction inspectors, including code enforcement officers, are required to have a high school diploma; however, many employers also require a degree or experience in related fields, such as architecture, construction technology or building inspection. Although not all municipalities require it, many code enforcement officers pursue certification within their state. In order to obtain certification, officers must pass a state or association examination. Some states also require training credits in addition to the examination. Finally, code enforcement officers are responsible for re certifying to maintain their status as certified code enforcement officers.
