    Why are these Police officer-0083 jobs so HARD to get?

    i have been qualified and have moved forward for BOP, CBPO,BPA and FAM........but for this job i never hear back after applying

    I was told I wasn't qualified for the GS-5 0083 as a 12, so yeah, there's that. Was near my hometown, so they would have had a career employee out of me, but oh well.

      Probably because they have someone in mind when they announce them? A lot of those positions are positions that a retire cop can do. That's my best guess.

          Are you a 10 point veteran? Do you have prior arrest authority? Being an 0083 is alot different than being a BPA.

            The majority of 0083 positions are not covered by 6c/12d. A lot of them are more security and force protection focused than a traditional city or state LE job.

              I got FERS and TSP, and all I do is mobile patrol, no gates, no security... depends on your installation. I am looking to get into the traffic section soon, though.

                You're basing your 0083 job on one facility. 0083 jobs are different in the same agency because each facility runs its programs differently. An 0083 at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing is going to do a different job than the Mint police or the IRS Police. A DACP 0083 at Ft. Jackson might do a different job than a DACP at Joint Base Myers-Henderson Hall or National Guard Bureau at Arlington Hall Va.

                  That's why I said it's based on installation. I like the job though, its decent pay, good benefits, and I get holiday pay

                    Everybody gets Sunday premium and holiday pay if they work on those days. Along with night differential

                        Probably because there are vastly more applicants than there are vacancies.

                        It's been a while since I last applied for a Fed job (not an 0083). I made an inquiry and learned I was #56 on a list of 1,400 and that they only intended to hire 27 people over the two year life of the list. Needless to say, I wasn't reachable and never heard from them again. Obviously, there were a lot of qualified people who were disappointed.
                        Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere
