  • Did they just toss that other announcement a bunch of people applied to in November? I'm sure they had an ish ton of applicants apply for the DC vacancy.

    • My guess would be that they didn't have enough of what they were looking for in the last announcement and they want to gather a larger pool of candidates to draw from for recruiting purposes...ie applicants with actual police experience and not just high school graduates

      • They still have them, if you try to apply under this announcement but had applied to the one in Dec. The system will say "you already applied to this announcement". Also my buddy who is on APD said they are still keeping the names of all those who applied in Dec.

                    Hired? I think you may be putting the cart before the horse my friend. Amtrak is one of the most competitive uniformed police agencies associated with the federal government. I think the better question is how long does it take for the first of many steps to begin. If I am not mistaken guys haven't heard anything regarding an announcement for the DC area stemming from November/December 2015 so that may put it in perspective of how long these things take.

                        I've applied to the NYC posting (about 6 months ago), certified NYS LEO. I'm just curious as to why these positions are so sought-after, the starting pay is pretty low?

                          Great retirement is the number 1 reason why for me and then you can get into specialty units like K-9 and/or SWAT travel across U.S.
