    I received my offer / commitment letter last week. I start Monday September 30th. I started the process may 21st. That’s a 4 month turn around. If this helps anyone I originally didn’t apply through USA jobs. I went to a job fair at my local VA. Was interviewed on the spot and selected to continue with the process a week later. I had all the steps done by the End of June. Then just pretty much had to wait for the commitment letter.

              10/11/2019 E-Qip Received and Submitted for Background Investigation Commencement
              (Most Information was retained from a previous E-Qip submitted from another agency within 2 years. That definitely helps save alot of time of filling out the packet.)

              • Nice you guys are getting on quick I had an interview back in May and still not heard anything. I also went on and talked to the chief to get a direct hire two months ago. I went back and talked with him and he told me that it's all in HR hands now.

                My neighbors with one of the officers at the local VA he said he also talked with the chief who told him the same thing that they are waiting on HR. Kind of sucks because these officers are working 30+ hours of OT every week because they are so short handed.

                Should been easy for them to hire me on I was a GL-9 with the national Park service.

                • Why would you want to go to vapd from nps. People can't run away quick enough from the VA. I have never seen so many people leave from a job before. If you need a job, sure, take it if you don't mind going to a 10 weeks of training that doesn't transfer to other fed agencies but if you have other options, I recommend you go there.

                  It's like base police/security. More Security than anything else.

                  • Don't think park service is the great not when you told that you don't rate to be there because you were in the military not a college and how that the 10 points you get for your purple heart was not earned.

                    I was treated as a charity case not really wanted but set up to fail! I went to LMPT early 2010 when I was with the BIA had gone though an FTO program. So 7 to 8 years later I was tossed in an FTO program with NPD and expedited to act like the guys who just got out of the academy and not updated on how the thing was changed! I did my time on a $hit hole called Standing Rock!

                    I saw more crime and did more arrest than any NPS officer! I average almost 300+ arrests a year there! I worked 16+ hours a day doing reports going to court as they scheduled you for the afternoon because we can't have day shift missing calls but we can have night shift missing sleep! As you imagine I got sick of that! During my year there Is I never used anything but hand control never used my taser, OC or baton!

                    NPS wanted me to treat grandma and grandpa like I would some person I hooked up 10 times! I know to protect yourself but my experience being in a place with WAY much more crime was not accounted for! I should do things the way that I was taught at FLETC! Not use the experience of how to talk to people and keep people from not liking you! No use FLETC way it's the best way to get into a fight!

                      Perfect. Now forget everything you learned at FLETC and enjoy the circus at LETC. Arrests? What is that? AUSA won't prosecute really anything in most locations. I have seen maybe 10 arrests in over 2.5 years while I was at VA.

                      At the same time, its the easiest job I have ever had. Stand around and talk with veterans all day.

                  • Got an email from SIC today after corrections needed to be made on my E-Qip. My background investigation should be starting soon. Now I'm just waiting on Occupational Health to send everything to HR, including my psychological results, and HR will let us know if we're moving forward or not. I just learned to throw the thoughts in the back of my head til they get back to me.

                    • Just completed my psych interview and have my medical/fingerprints this week. Got an email requesting I initial and sign the “Rules of Behavior”. Anyone get this packet before they completed everything?

                        I also received that packet and was told to read it over. I received the packet in a different order though. They gave it to us as we were scheduling the labs for testing, such as bloodwork and Drug Test.

                          • There are openings near me for both Air Force Police and Veterans Affairs Police. Would once be preferable over the other?
