Wel-l-l-l-l-l.....We can use LOTS of law enforcement, investigations and corrections....and that's just for Congress.....
You should do well in the DC area....lots of that stuff there....pay scales a lot higher than FL, too. Young single ladies would probably be best to look at living in Northern Virginia, along the Orange subway line. Safer, more affordable, lots of young people there and more in DC a short, safe subway ride away.
Here in the DC forum, even more so in VA forum, you can call up tons of data already posted by using the Search this Forum tool on such key words as: Ballston, Rosslyn, Metro, Subway, Orange, Arlington, Clarendon.
The subway also has a line down through Alexandria, which is also quite cool in many spots, like Old Town.
Try and stay inside the Beltway, unless job is way out.
Don't overlook all the Federal agencies. Spend some time cruising Federal agencies at: http://www.firstgov.gov/
and Federal job vacancies are listed at: http://www.usajobs.gov/
Lots there, you can't go wrong.
