        I saw they had an opening posted on USAJOBS

        http://jobview.usajobs.gov/GetJob.as...0+00%3a03%3a00

        A couple of quick questions about this position for manstown or someone else who is already a DUSM.

        Earlier in this thread they talked about being able to merit promote to DUSM from this position, is that true? Is there a lot of transporting inmates, or is it mainly being a federal jailer?

        Also I notice that they don't hire very often for this position, and very rarely in my part of the country, is there some reason why they don't have many DEO's and AEO's? I thought that since the USMS has their air hub here in Kansas City, there would be more need for AEO's around here, but I have never seen a listing for that position or for DEO in Kansas City.

            There are no DEO's in KC unless it as very, very recently changed....... They just don't use them...

            They do use local LEOs who are off-duty to do stuff for them. Good change if you can get into that gig.......

              Also, there is no more merit promotion from DEO to DUSM. DEO's have to apply just like anyone else for DUSM positions. at least that is what the DEO's here had to do.

                It is corrections work but their is a light at the end of the bullpen. If you are a worker and you don't bang in and you play well with others you can promote up within the USMS. But make no mistake, it is corrections work and you will be doing it for a number of years before the chance to move up comes. Some areas are better to work in than others. The head of the USMS in each court district is a political appointee so some of them are real jackoffs who do not have their peoples respect or back. I use to work in the southern district of NY as a BOP C/O and I would deal with the USMS quite a bit. Some of them were my former coworkers and they liked the USMS less than the BOP due to the BS. But a lot of people who worked in the Southern district for the USMS wanted out of NYC for a lot of valid reasons and it was not just the money. DEU is not a bad job if you know how to deal with convicts. The MS did not put up with as much BS as I did as a C/O. They would take care of business quick if a I/M got out of line. If you can jail for 4 to 6 years, you can promote. Good luck.

                    Hmmmm..........

                    I talked to the marshals office yesterday and they told me that going in as DEO is really smart, even though it doesnt really affect your chances when it comes to the big recruiting drives it helps when they hire ones and two's. I actually have a question someone might be able to answer, what are the qualifications for DEO? I have a bachelors degree in criminal justice and 4 years of military, does this help me?

                      Over the last year since I started paying attention, I have only seen it listed in a few places. Washington DC, Phoenix, Oklahoma City, Dallas, and just today a position in Atlanta opened.

                          By no means is it easy. Your competition is VERY stiff.
                          I figured I would try to merit promote into a position in a few years from the BOP. Unless of course they open FCIP for DUSM again in 2-3 years.

                            You took that way out of context, I was just saying the requirements aren't that hard, I realize competion for 2 jobs in the whole country will be stiff.
