Maine Police List

black Image of scales on white background with the words, "calibrate the scales" overlaid. As with any set of scales, the scales of justice must, from time to time, be recalibrated. Total balance is never achieved, but all in the criminal justice and legal systems must strive for it as much as possible.





Maine Law Enforcement Agencies

Maine is the state that was almost not a state. During the War of 1812, the territory was entirely occupied by British forces. However, part of the treaty which ended that war ceeded Maine to the United States and in 1820, it became the 23 state in the union.

Since then, Maine has remained sparsly populated. Its citizens remain among the most independent-minded in the nation. Political parties do not hold the kind of grip on Maine as in other parts of the nation. This has also had an impact on laws and the enforcement of law.

Maine, in fact, consistently leads the nation for lowest crime rates. According to the 2015 FBI UCR, the state was ranked 50th for crime, making it the safest place in America. In fact, the two other northernmost New England states rank near the bottom of the list. These are New Hampshire and Vermont. To be sure, these states are doing something the rest of the nation would do well to emulate.

There are 2569 police officers in Maine. These are divided among the 17 state criminal justice departments, 16 county agencies, 110 city, and 3 university police organizations.
