Employment for bailiffs is expected to grow by 4 percent through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, or more slowly than the average for all careers. The bailiff career is a long-established one, and bailiffs are considered indispensable in courtroom settings. Because of this, bailiffs are needed and will continue to be a major part of the courtroom system. However, competition for positions in the entire law enforcement field is keen due to such factors as the challenges these jobs offer and the sense of purpose these jobs provide. In addition, the number of positions available may also be affected by state, county, and local government funding of the judiciary.
