  • Hello!

    Hello,

    I represent a midsize law enforcement agency in the Bakken oilfield of North Dakota. I'll be posting a job announcement in the appropriate forum later, but wanted to post an introduction here for the sake of propriety. Nice to meet you all!

    When you say "I represent a midsize law enforcement agency in the Bakken oilfield of North Dakota" -

    I'm curious - Is that a governmental agency or what?

        I'm guessing you're referring to the "Bakken Oilfield" part? It's a reference to a specific area of North Dakota- more specifically, the oil-rich SW region comprising mainly Wlliams, Dunn, McKenzie, Billings, and Stark counties. I'm recruiting for the Dunn County Sheriff's Office. We're a patrol only (no jail) LE agency. If you're interested let me know- I'm more than happy to answer any questions. We pay extremely well, benefits are unmatched, and our equipment and administration is outstanding.

            The good pay and benefits are tempting, but there's just one thing. It's cold up there! Welcome to the site thought!

              That looks like a good gig. Family would never go for it.

                Welcome to O.com. This sounds like a good opportunity for a single young man trying to get into law enforcement. Is your agency busy? Does the administration let you be the police?

                  It is a great opportunity! I was a lateral, but our last hire we had to send through the academy. We serve a county that is roughly 2,200 square miles and and is in the middle of the Bakken oilfield of North Dakota so yes, we are busy, though the summers tend to be busier than the winters. It reached its peak in 2013/2014 then slowed, but it is picking back up fast. It's not hard to get a DUI in the day or night, and meth and marijuana are plentiful. Our narcotics task force stays busy and our regional SWAT team answers an average of one call per month.

                  As far as our administration goes, I cannot say enough good things about them. Does our administration let us "be the police?" Absolutely. You will never suffer repercussion for doing police work; you are free to be as aggressive toward crime as you please. Our command staff supports us in every way- we have the best and newest equipment available, top pay and benefits, and we couldn't ask for a better schedule- you could take a 9 day vacation each month by using only two days of paid leave if you wished.

                  They are very good about honoring vacation/shift swap requests, and we don't have a single CPL, SGT, or higher that will nitpick your work as long as your ethics and policy adherence are in line. I have never had a training request denied without a solid reason, and our administration encourages everyone to seek career advancement insofar as joining specialized teams/units and learning new skills.

                  Moreover, we report directly to our squad supervisors and we have zero local politics at play in our work, by policy. We enjoy a very high level of community support because they know we are on the streets going hard after crime. As a bonus, LE in ND also enjoys the same support from the state government and residents in general. You can drive to cities hundreds of miles apart and it is not uncommon to see a thin blue line billboard or a few pro-police signs. The state legislature is also preparing to pass a bill giving officers a 25% tuition discount at universities statewide, and just last month a grant expired that gave public safety personnel a $500/month housing assistance check.

                  Here's the announcement. Applicants are required to pass two panel interviews, a rigorous background investigation, criminal history check, drug screen, medical exam, and psychological examination.
