Career in Law Enforcement

Police and Sheriff Patrol Officers are important members of law enforcement. They maintain order, enforce laws and ordinances, as well as protect lives and property in their assigned patrol district. They perform such duties by patrolling a specific area on foot or in a vehicle, help direct traffic, issue traffic summonses when necessary, investigate accidents within their assigned districts, and arrest suspects.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national number of employment for these two jobs is over 780,000. As of the date released in 2012, the mean annual pay for police and sheriff officers are is at $59,980, which means that they make around $27.40 per hour. The BLS projects that there will be a 5% increase in the number of jobs from 2012-2022, which is slower than the average. However, the continued interest for public safety will always lead to new job openings for officers of the law.
