The Department of Public Safety also consists of Management Office and Legal personnel.

Maine State Police Internship Program

Due to the volume of applications we have decided to temporarily suspend the acceptance of NEW applications for candidates who are not currently MCJA certified (BLETP candidates). We WILL continue to accept applications from officers currently certified in Maine, as we anticipate hiring for the February 2019 Recruit Training Troop. An announcement will be made when we resume the acceptance of new applications for the BLETP.
