    What's the pay scale for a position like this, what do they do? Is this only investigative or is it uniformed also?

    Do they have federal authority and retirement?

      Starting [U]salary[U] approx. $63K to $69K DOE. Yearly cost of living increases and nice bonuses depending on company performance, which does good even in a soft economy.

      Duties vary from location to location. Basically respond to RR related calls for service. Basic patrol duties, train inspections, follow up investigations.

      It is a uniformed position, you a patrol officer and you follow up on your own cases or assist other agents with theirs.

      This is the promotion process: Special Agent, Sr. Special Agent, Sr. Special Agent II which means you have a specialty such a Accident Analysis, K9, Public Safety, Investigator, Organized Crime Specialist, and other stuff.

      Then Sr. Special Agent III Supervisor (Lt.), Division Director (Capt.), Regional Director (Deputy Chief).

      We have federal interstate authority. Title 49 USC Transportation

      (a) A railroad police officer who is designated by a railroad and commissioned under the laws of any state is authorized to enforce the laws (as specified in paragraph (b) of this section) of any state in which the railroad owns property and to which the railroad has provided notice in accordance with §207.4.

      Basically gives you authority to work in any state that UP has property in. Good for working multi-state operations or going to assist other regions.

      UP company pension, matching 401k, Federal RR retirement which is 30 years [U]and[U] 60 yoa. See FRR retirement board website.

        Hey, I used to work with your guys (and BNSF) quite a bit before I got a desk job. I don't think I could work another 30 yrs, I would retire at 71 if that was the case. Like I said I used to work with RR police and I gotta tell you guys that if you are going to be a RR cop then you really have to step up. These guys are on and off those trains alot, checking the cars, numerous foot chases, and those tracks are in some dark and spooky places. Those guys are by themselves alot, in the dark fields with those gangs that ride the rails and local thugs. Dangerous job, but every RR cop I know loves it and wouldn't trade it for anything. Hey, maybe I will apply after all.
