Law Enforcement Resources


The U.S. Department of Justice recently reported that almost 1.1 million dedicated men and women now serve in local and state law enforcement agencies, including more than 765,000 sworn police officers. This represents a ratio of one state or local law enforcement official to every 400 U.S. residents. As the number of law enforcement jobs has increased in recent years, new opportunities have surfaced for those interested in becoming police officers, deputy sheriffs and state troopers.


While most police officers, deputy sheriffs and state troopers provide the vital law enforcement services necessary to keep criminals off the streets, there are also a wide variety of specialized careers for those who would like to serve in the most elite law enforcement units. This means that in addition to the traffic enforcement, 911 response and criminal investigations that are critical to keeping residents and motorists safe, there are also law enforcement units dedicated to counterterrorism, SWAT, K-9 handling, digital forensics, and extreme environments.
