Job openings and pay vary depending on the specific public service area you are interested in. Provided are a few websites where you can find specific information:
A national resource is BLS Occupational Outlook Handbook website. For example, here is the detail for the occupation group “protective services” and “public service” from that website. Note that this information is a national aggregate and not specific to Utah.
For Utah specific occupation data, you may find the Utah DWS occupation website useful. You can search by keyword but since a search has to match the government defined occupation title, it is often easier to use the drop down menu in Option 2. Option 3 provides a drop down of occupational groups which is helpful for listing all of the occupations within an area. For example, when you open “protective services” in option 3, and select “first line supervisors police and detectives (33-1012)” a full data report provides growth projections, wage information and other data by Utah metro area.
The UVU Career Development Center also has additional information on labor market and salaries.
