Become a Lincoln County Deputy, Get a Huge $16K Hiring Bonus
Experienced law enforcement officers interested in making a change could earn an impressive hiring bonus by making the move to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.
Who's Eligible for the Bonus?
A post on the department's Facebook page has some important information for law enforcement officers who are thinking about relocating. Experienced new hires to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office are eligible for a $16,000 sign-on bonus. That's a nice chunk of change. Not everyone will get that much, but it's worth checking into if you're looking for options. New hires who make a lateral move to the Lincoln County department could earn up to $35.61 per hour, and get up to 4 weeks' vacation each year.
Fresh out of the Academy and have no previous law enforcement experience? No problem. They still would love to hear from you. Entry-level positions for applicants with no previous experience are paying $26.00 per hour.
In addition to the impressive pay, employees of the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department are eligible for health insurance, military and education bonuses, and a pension. What? Who offers pensions anymore? They do, worth 2/3rds of your pay after 25 years of service.
Where Are They Located?
The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office is located in Wiscasset, which is one of my favorite areas of the state. My husband and I love going to Reid State Park in Georgetown and appreciate the proximity to the coastline as well as more urban areas like Brunswick and Portland. I mean who wouldn't love being less than a half-hour away from this?

Open positions include a Field Training Officer, Drug Recognition Expert, Accident Reconstructionist, School Resource Officer, K-9 Deputy, Honor Guard, Detective, Instructor Development, and UAV Team.
