    Can anyone explain the main duties of a Deportation Officer? I'm not very well educated in this career.

      As a deportation officer with the Enforcement and Removal Operations directorate of ICE, your work is critical to enforcing immigration law against those who present a danger to national security and public safety, and who violate the integrity of our immigration system. You will use smart, efficient strategies and tactics to manage all aspects of the immigration enforcement process, including the identification and arrest, transportation, detention, case management and removal of aliens. ERO deportation officers also conduct legal research to support decisions on removal cases and assist attorneys in representing the government in court actions. Deportation officers work with other federal law enforcement officials to identify, locate and arrest aliens and are responsible for ensuring the physical removal of aliens from the United States.

    Did anyone apply to this announcement even though they had already been referred? I wasn't sure so I reapplied just in case.

      First time i noticed a Polygraph requirement for a deportation officer position. I wonder if you taken and passed the polygraph for CBP recently, will this transfer over?

        When I applied they asked if you have taken a federal polygraph within a certain time frame, I think the past year. When I applied in 2017 they said the poly was possible.

      Turn on CNN, it's 'Trump's nazi immigration army'

      DOs are a part of ERO, Enforcement Removal Operations. What you see in the news, arresting those illegally present in the country. However, there is a lot more to the job. Lots of 'paper' duties, preparing dockets for court, criminal alien prosecutions, some detainment facility work. Job varies wildly by the office you are assigned to. A detention center like Lumpkin will be almost exclusively paper work. A place like Oakdale handles a ton of removals, so the DOs actually fly overseas to return the aliens. I've had BP friends go to offices in major cities and they were doing fugitive ops in a few years. DOs generally do not perform long term investigations, those get passed over to HSI.

      Job has a lot of components, but if you are a street cop who loves door kicking and pursuits, may not be a good fit. However, the job is mostly Monday-Friday, bankers hours, plain clothes. GS-12 pay. 6c covered. Great foot into federal LE and potentially an 1811 down the road. Quite a few DOs in my 1811 academy classes.

        Having logged time in 3 different immigration agencies (4 if you count INS) A Deportation Officer is by far the best.

        1 - Currently the best paid Immigration Officer/Agents
        2 - Monday - Friday day shift at many locations
        3 - Travel (I’ve been to 5 of the 7 continents)
        4 - Non-uniform
        5 - HIP
        6 - Wide variety of duties/assignment
        7 - By far the most complex

        Outside of GS 13 1811s this is one of if not the best paid Fed Leo gigs in the country.

        What’s HIP? I tried googling but nothing came back. Also how are they better better paid then 1811s in similar grades with LEAP? Not trying to be a smart *** just trying to figure out how they make more then any other FLEO with similar grade and step. Thanks

        HIP = Health Initiative Program. Authorizes Officers to workout on duty.

        Deportation Officers (DO) are compensated with AUO and are considered FLSA non-exempt (receive FLSA). Every hour over 85.5 hours in a pay period is compensated with FLSA. On average a journeyman DO will make between 7-9k annually in FLSA.

        1811s are considered FLSA exempt (do not receive FLSA). So an 1811 GS12 with LEAP will make approx 7-9k less than a journeyman DO with AUO. This also closes the gap a bit between an 1811 GS 13 and DO GS12. Instead of a 16k or so difference it’s about half that.

        Here’s a decent breakdown of the pay of FAMS vs 1811 vs DO.

          Is there a way to tell if you made it into the 2000 group? I just got an email saying application was received but nothing further

            No there isnt. When the first steps start happening to the first 2000 qualified applicants, that's essentially how you'll know.

          Just a note. The federal government is very different from the private sector. Be mindful that the application process is going to take some time and you may go weeks without knowing anything. Just be prepared for when you do hear something.

            Well in the announcement it says they will make a determination for those 2,000 applicants in about 6 Weeks from open date (9/13/18) you will get an assessment invite.

              Right but that can vary. I applied for an announcement with an other agency in March and I'm just getting a referral notice. I applied for the Female DO position in June and that process has also been different and I got letters before others so I'm just saying nothing is set in stone with these announcements. I know there is people who've been on here since 2015 and late 2016 and they are still in the process.

              I'm not trying to be ugly with my comment I just wanted to show transparency with what I've seen and had to learn throughout the process.

                Took me 2 years 2 months for my first agency, 18 months for my second, and 2.5 for my current. And one of those was this agency, so ya'll might as well buckle in for the long ride. The hiring processes as of recent for my agencies has become much faster, so that's a good thing. But for example, ICE medical is one of the most backed up, slowest there is. There are people from the 2015 HSI announcement that are cleared to hire, but have been in medical purgatory for 2 years. One of my great friends just EOD to this very position, ICE DO, in the last few weeks. He was in ICE medical for about a year and a half. All just pieces of the puzzle.

                Good luck to all.

                  Would it be a bit more of a smoother ride through the medical if someone is healthy, in shape, and zero health issues? Does it matter?

                  No issues, no hold ups. Ive been lucky to breeze through every agency medical. But questions like 'do you ever get headaches' which is a yes for everyone, will get you stuck there for a year. So answer wisely

                  I am healthy, in shape, but the only issues I have are from the military and so far it's been nearly 5 months in medical purgatory.

                  Understood. Thanks. I just signed up for a life insurance policy. It was a drag answering all their questions pertaining to my health. I answered NO to all their questions. I been fortunate enough not to be broken through my military career and no serious illnesses.

                  But I am getting way ahead of myself.

                I definitely think patience is the biggest thing I’ve learned in the forum lol.

                  Wow, I snoozed so hard on this. I have been waiting for this announcement for awhile, and just came across this thread. Of course, I applied just now, but I'm also beating my head off my desk!
