EPA Special Agents (Criminal Investigation Division)
Environmental laws and regulations will continue to be passed, amended, and maintained. Unfortunately, there will always be people out there looking for ways to save money and hassle by evading the laws. EPA special agents will continue to be needed to help prevent and enforce environmental laws and regulations. Competition for jobs will be keen, however, as this is a niche field and there are typically more applicants than there are jobs to fill. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, while job opportunities in most local police departments will be favorable in the next few years, average employment growth is expected for law enforcement positions within state and federal agencies through 2018. Some employment growth will be attributed to agents retiring from the field or advancing to other positions within the EPA.
