Maine State Police Face Trooper Shortage

November 07, 2010  | 

The Maine State Police have 27 openings for troopers and expect 40 more to retire in 2011, which will leave the agency with the most openings in more than 20 years, reports MPBN.net.

The agency is authorized for 326 positions and now has 299 troopers.

Colonel Patrick Fleming says state law forbids him from hiring a trooper until a vacancy is created. It takes the agency about a year to hire and train a trooper.

The times are tough for everyone. Does the Maine Hwy Patrol have reserve officers that can help out? Perhaps Maine State Law does not cover the amount of volunteer workers that the Hwy Patrol can have available. This could be a short term manpower solution for them and give them a readily trained pool of manpower to draw from. Maybe 200 reserve officers could be a big help. Its just a thought.

Went to the Maine State Police website and looked at the posting. You have to pay to take the police test, then pay to do the Physical Agility Test. That's $65.00 total and the pay is horrible for a police officer.
