  • Does any US Law Enforcement agencies hire Canadian Law enforcement officers?

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am a Canadian Corrections officer, I work for 600 member correctional facility, the biggest in Canada, in a really busy area. Before that I worked for State Police in European Union(Latvia) as a police officer(Head of Department was my last position). My more than ten years of experience – starting as a patrolman and ending as that of Head of Division, Major of State Police - all took place in a complex and extremely precarious environment. There is a good chance that I will have to move to US due to my wife's employment...... I am a Canadian citizen therefore I am not sure what procedures that I will have to go through in order to obtain a job as a Law enforcement officer with the US Law enforcement agencies - Police, Sheriff Department......
    I have contacted many US police departments, they answered - you need to contact US Government?!
    Can anyone offer any advise please, helpfully websites or know of any Canadians that have crossed over?????......
    Thank you.

      There are a few states that allow non US Citizens to be hired as police officers . Most will not.
      I am unable to find a single source that is up to date as to which states will allow non citizens. You would just have to check the state licensing entity for any place you were considering living
      My state requires citizenship

      Even in the states that allow non citizens to become police officers some of the cities will not.
      Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

          Alabama requires U.S. citizenship to serve as a law enforcement officer at state, county, or city level.
