Yes on take home ride and police powers, unknown if they are armed.

Good luck on getting hired for this position, they only hire once or twice a year and receive 600 applications each time. Unless you already have the full-time academy, (they require at a minimum the reserve academy) there is little chance of getting hired.

Last I knew take home car, r/i academy, the carry but have to carry their own weapon after they qualify with it. Seems like a pretty good gig but there's no way in hell I'd leave my gig for a Group 1 pension job.

NH's version of liquor enforcement if you're interested to go North..
This^

NH Liquor Enforcement, is a uniformed position. They have state wide authority for liquor related offenses. From what I have been told, they basically perform code enforcement for bars, they perform compliance checks on establishments with a liquor license. They assist NHSP with DUI check points and perform physical security, for the NH Liquor stores.

Does anyone have any knowledge on them? Are they armed? Take home ride? Police powers? Any insight would be great
They do receive a state vehicle and the investigators spend the majority of their days outside of the office doing work which includes undercover work. I've attended a training that they put on for MPTC and all of them spoke very highly of the dept. And who wouldn't, they make incredible money for a state department!

^Aren't they a small department of 15 or so?
As far as investigators go, Yes they are Insanely small considering they have to cover the whole state.. There is only a dozen or so investigators But I was told they are desperately looking to add more. I talked to an investigator for a while at the training. After hearing such good things about the job/department and that incredible salary I would hang up the duty belt and give this place a go!

I recall many moons ago, speaking with the Chief of Police at Stonehill College who, by DAY was C of P, but by NIGHT was an ABCC investigator. He liked both jobs. I can't see myself having the time to hold two jobs, but he pulled it off. Keep that in mind, potential applicants.

And yeah, he seemed like a decent guy.

Was he a full-time investigator or part-time? And the only reason why I ask is because I just heard about part-time ABCC investigators a couple days ago while doing online state ethics training. It took me by surprise, because I never knew ABCC had part-time investigators, and that's probably because it's some obscure job that nobody has heard of, which is common in this state...
