  • ICE 1801 Technical Enforcement Officer 1801

    Any ICE SA's out there have any current info on this position? Any near future openings in the works?

    Are those the guys who break in and plant bugs? If so that is a sweet gig.

      I asked a similar question on another board a few months ago, and an ICE agent said it's always one of those a opening is coming soon kind of thing.

      Heard it's a great gig with a take home and 24/7 carry.

      USPIS had an opening a few weeks ago for technical agents (similar job different title) so that's something to look for.

      Other agencies do have similar positions but I have heard the ICE spot is unique in that it is not a collateral duty like it is in most agencies.

        Its a sweet gig if you can get it.....

        They are 6c/12d covered, carry 24/7, take home ride in most cases, and don't have a case load like SA's do....and top out at GS-13 (same as Agents).

        They do want you to have some expereince (depending on the Hiring Grade) but they send everyone to FLETC for specialized training....

        This job tends to not be a step over to 1811 spot.....ICE wants people that want to stay in it for good.....

        At least that's what the guys out here have told me..... They are supposed to have an opening soon due to a retirement.

          Good to hear, I used to do similar work with a municipal agency but was unarmed. Currently with ICE ERO, would be a nice transition. Anyone know what specialized training is received @ FLETC? and how long it is?

            From what the guys out here told me it was training class that ICE did @ FLETC for their folks.... Gentleman's Course....not sure of the length.....

            They didn't really get into it because of the nature of the beast.....but one can suspect it has to do with surveillance, wires, etc....and how to do them legally and sneaky.....

                6c/12d Coverage means you have to be under 37 unless you are a Vet......as it's 20 year LEO retirement......

                  I don't work for ICE, but do work as a 1811 with another agency that has 1801 TEO's. They (along with our 1811 special agents trained and assigned to technical units) assist special agents working cases with technical surveillance equipment (i.e. surveillance cameras, audio/video intercept equipment, GPS tracking equipment, etc.). They're commonly referred to as the "wires and pliers" folks, and for the most part it seems like a good gig. I've seen our guys do some amazing work in disguising surveillance equipment to look like everyday surroundings, kinda like "Q" from the old James Bond movies.

                  Probably not a job easily attained by someone without a technical background (i.e. it would probably be a long shot for a recent CJ grad with no prior LE or tech background to land the job). Our 1811 agents typically have to have a few years on before they can put in for a Tech position, the 1801 TEO's are hired directly to the position.

                        I have an extensive background in the film business. Do you think this could qualify me?

                          You need an electronics background....and have done surveillance work in the past... It clearly stats that in the 2-3 USAJOBs annoucements that are currently open.....

                            The announcement lists promotion potential to GS-12, just FYI. Seems to be a sweet gig though.

                              Some locations are 13s. It would be a sweet gig if you had what they are looking for......

                              As stated above 20 year retirement, Creds, take-home rides in some cases, etc.....

                              The San Antonio annoucement makes it look like they are wanting folks with skills already and not someone that would be learning them. Not sure about the others......
