Law Enforcement Associations and Organizations

Associations and organizations can be a great source for establishing contacts within the law enforcement community and the area of law enforcement in which you would like to pursue. It is also a way to learn about different types of law enforcement jobs. Many associations post job openings on their website. Some law enforcement associations offer student memberships available at a reduced rate. There are even scholarships available through some associations.
