Police Officer & Sheriff's Deputy Job Openings by State [Interactive Map]

It takes an extremely brave person to willingly place themselves in the line of fire to keep their community safe. You’re well aware of the imminent danger but it’s a risk you’re prepared to take in order to fulfill your dream of becoming a police officer or deputy sheriff.

Every community depends on its local law enforcement personnel to protect and serve its residents, but which areas are currently in need of the most help? We created this handy map to help you determine which states have the most potential for aspiring police officers and sheriff’s deputies.

Using this tool will help you get to know the law enforcement landscape so you can start making a plan for your future.

How it works ...

The map below is color-coded to reflect the total number of police officer and deputy sheriff job openings by state over the past year.* Darker states have more opportunities, while lighter states have fewer.

Simply hover over the state you’re interested in and click your mouse. You will then be presented with the total number of job openings and the median annual salary for that particular state.

It’s important to note that salary data represents national, averaged earnings for the occupations listed and includes workers at all levels of education and experience. This data does not represent starting salaries and employment conditions in your area may vary.
