Top 20 law enforcement agencies for transitioning veterans — new 2017 list

There’s good news for returning war veteran job seekers. In November, the veteran unemployment rate was 4.8%, slightly higher that the overall unemployment rate of 4.6% but still keeping with an overall downward trend that began two years ago.
