    You're not looking for SWAT-style like hmm...

    at one time or later an 1811 might have to do SWAT style like duties.

    Maybe try a 1810 or 1801?

    Try FBI Investigation Specialist? Surveillance Specialist? Intelligence Analyst?

      Having to do it from time to time is one thing, but doing it consistently is another. I could be wrong, but I did not think I would be breaking in doors with assault rifles on a daily basis in a CI role. Is that a routine CI duty for most agencies?

        I can't speak for other agencies but for the FBI, agents rarely breaking in doors (if at all) during their entire career.

          I think it mainly depends on the agency. I know there are squads in the MCIOs (NCIS, AFOSI, etc) that help serve high-risk search warrants at times. Also, some agencies such as DEA and USMS have a higher probability to do such things, even though it may not be on a regular basis. However, the more white-collar oriented 1811s probably don't do it very often, or like Virus said, at all.

            If you watch the show "DEA" on spike tv, you'll see that the agents assigned to street narcotics groups to a great deal of raids. One episode they did two in one day. I've heard from a local cop that one of his former cop buddies got on with DEA and has mostly a desk/investigation type role.

              A lot of the officers conducting raids in that show are local officers assigned to a DEA task force.

                I don't remember the percentage but its something like 6% of Deputy Marshals are actually on a fugitive apprehension task force. Most just do desk work. I imagine that a lot of other agencies are like this as well.

                  The DEA Series you are talking about either NJ or New Orleans. I can speak on behalf of the NJ division since I interned there. Spike followed the Groups 5 & 6 for a span of two years I believe and of course they are going to use the footage of the raids that they participated in because that will get the ratings up and give an impression that all they do is search and arrest warrants (or raids). Like any Federal LE Agency you do a lot of paper work, surveillance, and have to build up your case before you are granted the warrants from the judge. Most of the time, the investigations are ranging from months to years and maybe you will accumulate 2 raids and maybe around 8-10 arrests of an investigation that takes 2 years. Also depends on the Division or Field Office and how the investigation goes it could be a lot bigger then expected and could have huge results or small results. Also if it is an OCDETF investigation that usually is anywhere from 2-7 years long and could be longer.

                    I have found that typing in "special agent," "criminal investigator," "investigator" .... these sort of things works well. And then as others mentioned, if you want to look at a specific agency you can specifically search for that agency's vacancy announcements.

                      It all depends on the agency. With my three letter agency, we conduct high risk search warrants along side state and locals! It all depends on who you go with!
