Employment of police officers and detectives is expected to increase about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Strong competition for jobs will exist at the federal level and in most state police departments. Opportunities will be best in local police departments, especially those which are located in high-crime areas or that offer relatively lower pay than other departments.
