Troop J

If you have in interest in a career as a Maine Trooper please contact Tr. Gavin Andre or Trooper Jeff Taylor by clicking on their name or by calling 1-800-432-7381 or 207-664-0176. Also check out our recruitment area on this website (Click Here.)

Troop J is responsible for providing professional, full service law enforcement services to the people of Hancock and Washington counties. The Troop currently has a compliment of 1 lieutenant, 3 sergeants, 16 troopers and one office associate. The troop's main office is located in Ellsworth but the troop also has field offices in Machias and Calais. Troopers within the Troop also provide specialty services such as defense tactics instruction, accident reconstruction, evidence collection and firearm instruction. In addition, several Troopers within the Troop are Tactical Team members and two have K-9's.

Troop J partners with the Hancock and Washington County Sheriff Offices by participating in two resource sharing agreements. These agreements maximize the effectiveness of limited law enforcement resources in rural areas and promote cooperation.
