    Oddly enough, considering what info you've provided, it doesn't appear you'd meet the minimum qualifications because, "A minimum of two years of progressively responsible casework experience in the investigation or supervision of offenders as a probation, parole or pre-trial services officer is required."

    HOWEVER, given your J.D., I'd bet more the a few chiefs would give you a shot at an interview. Just my .02 cents. Good luck.

    Anyone have any info on SDNY? Hiring process? I took their test a while ago and received a call that I passed. They scheduled an interview for sometime next month. Best job in the world? I understand everyone has stressed the fact that each district lives by their own rules. Anyone with specific info on this district? 2 round interviews, next academy, G-ride, carry, task force, interaction with judges/defense attorneys, prosecutors, probationers?

    Guam is one district that does not carry. I think they have everything ready for them to start a firearms program. Just have to get the chief judge to agree. Massachusetts might be another. More and more districts are allowing officers the option to carry on duty.

    I believe there are only 2 districts left that do not carry on duty. I went to FLETC with a USPO out of Baltimore, I believe they do carry (unless the officer simply chooses not to carry).

    I can't provide any in-depth information, but I did attend FLETC with a couple officers out of the San Diego office. Some pros/cons as with any district across the US. From what I heard, they liked their direct supervisors though and morale is pretty good. Caseloads can be crazy due to the proximity to the border and obviously Spanish is a good skillset to have. My impression was that it was a good place to work.

    I see what you are saying about civil service protection. Good Luck with the other LE job search.

    yeah,I explain myself to the deputy chief probation officer. I had to decline the offer because of salary and being an expected service without the full civil service protection. even though the scheduling and work load was ideal for me. she understood and told me to reapply if I change my mind. nice people, nice agency.

    maybe I've been having good luck because I found plenty of federal 6c jobs available. like people always said, apply for everything and make your decision in the end. always easier to get a job if you have a job for some reason.
