Haven't seen anything on here about Maine SP for a while so wanted to get the message out. We currently have a continuous hiring process open for certified officers from in-state and out of state. Once a candidate finishes the process they will be hired immediately. They will perform various functions for the agency until the start of the next recruit training troop (RTT) which is planned for the summer. Certified officers will be eligible for step increases upon hire based on experience.
Duty assignments are available in every Troop in the state and lateral hires WILL know their assignment at the time of hire. We just tentatively agreed to a new contract which includes multiple raises and changes to on-call pay which will greatly benefit Troopers and their families. Minimum shift, grant, construction and escort overtime opportunities are all available immediately upon completion of FTO. Full descriptions of the specialty teams can be found on the website.
A bill to reform qualified immunity for officers was soundly defeated 9-1 in the last legislative session. You still have the support of the people and legislators here in Maine! See a short video below that covers highlights of one of the recent 10-week RTTs.
