Didn't want to hijack that other thread about moving to NH or Maine, so I figured I'd start a new thread.  I'm in Massachusetts, but want to move to NH, VT, or ME.  

I don't have anything tying me here like wife or kids or anything, so that's not an issue for me.  However, I do need to find work in one of those places in order to move.

Specifically, I've been trying to get into a career in law-enforcement for some time now.  MA police departments seem to rely mostly on the old "who-you-know and not what-you-know" addage.  Does anyone know of and can recommend any departments in New Hampshire, Vermont, or Maine that are hiring?

In addition to LEO positions, I'd also be interested in any other sort of criminal-justice related positions in those states.  I do have my associates in law enforcement and a bachelor's in criminal justice.

The bottom line is basically to find myself a new and decent home-state and to find myself a career I'll enjoy for the next 20 years.

Hudson,NH was recently hiring. Don't know what the current situation is, but you might check them out. Good luck.

Theyre always looking for State Police or Burlington (biggest city in VT, relatively) PD.  I've heard from State cops that pay isn't something to brag about, but the risk isn't all that much either.

Check with Chief Patterson with the Saint Albans City Police, Tell him Tony (from Alder Run) said to give him a call. I ask what other places he might know has an opening ie: Vermont State Police etc.

Thanks everyone for the replies.  

I checked out Hudson, NH but according to their website they're not currently hiring.

Burlington looked ok.  Can't get to St. Albans City's website.  So, I'll see about calling them and talking to the chief if possible as you suggested ARgon.

I'll definitely take a look at the VT State Police though.  Their starting salary was higher than I expected, and the entrance standards were do-able.  I say "do-able" since I've never been a fast distance runner, so that 1.5-mile in 12-minute part of the Cooper exam always stops me.  But it looks like VT state police have a "points" system so although I'd lose a point or two on running and the bench press, I'd pick points up on push-ups, sit-ups, flexibility, etc...

Border Security (Customs and INS) has a current announcement out.  About $45,000 after 3 yrs + OT.

Oh?  I hadn't seen that one listed anywhere.  I'm on the e-mail list for US Customs where they send out e-mails with job openings when they become avaialable.  Haven't seen any yet though for this area.

Go to website, I think it's the CareerFinder section.  I may have been wrong though, it might not be out yet but supposed to hire 3000 Southern Border and 3000 all other locations.
