Maine police departments have difficulty recruiting officers
Law enforcement agencies across the state report they are having difficulty in finding applicants who want to become police officers and who can make it through the multistep hiring process
PORTLAND, Maine — A bright red "we're hiring" advertisement comes flashing forward when the Portland Police Department's website is opened.
The Maine State Police website has a "***now hiring***" line in red and also a crawler across the top of its site that states the hiring process is now open.
The state's largest police forces are not alone in their search for qualified people to put on a uniform.
