Working in Law Enforcement
A career in law enforcement requires sacrifices, but also offers tremendous rewards. You help people at times when no one else can and make a difference in their lives. You will play a role in stopping the abuse of a battered spouse, the sexual assault of a child, or taking a drunk driver off the road. Every shift is different and even the best fiction writer cannot dream up some of the situations in which you will be involved.
While everyone starts on patrol, the Brunswick Police Department offers opportunities to further your career in various specialties such as:
- Collision Reconstruction
- Criminal Investigations
- Crisis Negotiation Team
- Cyber Forensics
- Drug Enforcement
- Honor Guard
- Instructor Opportunities
- K-9 Unit
- Marine Resource Enforcement
- Mountain Bike Unit
- School Resource Officers
- Special Response Team
- Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Unit
We are committed to the constant training of our officers and provide training well beyond the state mandated requirements. Each annual training cycle includes simulations, emergency vehicle operations, defensive tactics, two 4-hour firearms trainings and various legal updates. We also send our officers to off-site training to further their career development. Illustrating our strong career development, four current Maine police chiefs are retired Brunswick officers.
In 2013, we moved into our new police station, it has state of the art interview rooms, large lockers and ample meeting and training spaces. Our communications center provides services to Brunswick and Freeport.
If you would like to know more about our department and its opportunities to serve the citizens of Brunswick - or even just come in for a "ride-a-long", please email Chief Scott Stewart or call 207-721-4317. View our hiring brochure!
