Are jobs in this industry on the rise? Are there any sub-sectors that are growing?

Where are the jobs? Which places have the most police officer opportunities?

I think that you'll see that Police jobs will remain constant for the most part. As some smaller towns are downsizing, larger cities remain fairly constant in their numbers. The Federal jobs have been creating more jobs with the creation of the TSA jobs etc and the terrorism response. In the Phila area, the numbers remain constant. Just keep applying, it will happen!

Ideas:
Phoenix
Orlando
Houston
Jacksonville
Los Angeles
Chicago
Charlotte

Hi,

There are numerous career opportunities in the police department with a number of vacancies being advertised regularly. A career in the police force offers good compensation and benefits. It is a job that commands respect from the society at large. It raises the self-esteem of the individual and helps to develop a sense of responsibility in the community.
