Seven Secrets: Power Job Searching Awaits
We can help you find the agencies hiring the fastest, connect you with people who work there, and help you get prepared to interview for the jobs you want.
Reading through these seven steps could be the key to your next job.
We’ve Got Experts – Care to Meet Them?
On PoliceLink.com, you’ve got people. It may be hidden, but our Network Connections feature could be the most powerful help to your job search.
Did you know that when you search for police jobs on our site, you’ll find PoliceLink members who work for the agencies you are looking to get hired at?
You can add these people to your friends network, send them messages to learn about their careers, or invite them to join you in a group based on your common interests.
Free Police Job Posting on PoliceLink
Since adding free job postings to the list of services PoliceLink provides to users, we’ve given our members a unique chance to access law enforcement recruiters before other job listings attract other applicants. Learning how to take advantage of this service might get you a long way towards getting hired.
Be Proactive: Take Advantage of Groups
Using online social networks is an increasingly effective way to personally get in touch with those who will be the first to know about job openings and emerging career paths – of course, we’re talking about active and retired law enforcement officers (LEOs).
Joining PoliceLink’s groups allows you to band together with others, enabling you to turn online networking into real-life connections.
If you aren’t finding the group you’re looking for on our site, create your own, and invite others to join.
And staying in touch could uncover some job information that could make all the difference.

Our Department Reviews come from thousands of current and former officers who have rated their agencies.
Once you’re registered on our site, the agencies that are closest to your location will display first.

But PoliceLink is one of the only websites which provide specific information about law enforcement career profiles, or how to success as a federal agent.
