Maine Police Recruiting

Police forces in Maine are having difficulty finding qualified people to wear the badge:

 

“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.”

“The polygraph test “seems to be the biggest stumbling point,”…

“Others who apply feel a sense of entitlement and just figure they will be given the job without any effort”

…like a fitness test: “They know it in advance and they still go down there and can’t pass. This is what they say they want to do as a career and they haven’t prepared themselves. It speaks volumes.”

“The number of people who apply also is down compared to years past”
