    Current Fed LE. Applied and was rated eligible for GS-9, however was not referred for both Colorado & Raleigh. Expected outcome as I’m not a current service member, but sucks nonetheless because I’m trying to jump ship ASAP, haha.

    I'd say do both. Heck even if you did the accounting classes online at your own pace is still great resume fodder. I do know one guy who got off active duty CID and went to MPFU, and he did pay for his CFE courses and exam. I think he said he went to some hotel convention center where they basically taught you the courses and at the conclusion of the third day he took the exam. Either way the CFE definitely helped him land the MPFU spot. Good luck

    Great advice, I'm going to do that. My long-term goal is to work on fraud cases. I'd like to end up with an OIG somewhere but they don't seem to hire entry level very often. Do you think the CFE certification is more valuable than me taking a few community classes in accounting?

    Winter_Patriot , MPFU loves to see CFE (Certified Fraud Examiner) on the resume. If your not one already, I would suggest taking the course and paying out of pocket to take the exam.

    Army CID has less than 250 1811s with the vast majority with 701st MP Group (CID) with Procurement Fraud or Computer/Cyber-crimes. Their are few 1811s assigned to the field as Sex Assault Investigators (SAIs). Almost every Army CID 1811 I've met was prior 31D/311A from Active Duty.

    Edit: Additional 1811 MPFU postings for Colorado Springs, CO and Raleigh, NC.

    This posting is for MPFU, all fraud. It’s a good springboard to DCIS or other OIG type of gigs. As far as the changes coming to CID, most of them are a good idea and when I was on the conference call about it last week, the message was “we are still trying to figure it out and it’s going to take time”. Also as someone else mentioned, budget is always in play. I will retire most likely in 2022 before I see any large changes

    The civilian 1811’s in Army CID were mainly procurement fraud investigators with a small percentage of sex assault investigators. The vast bulk of Army CID people were enlisted uniform agents.

    After the Fort Hood Congressional Investigation, Army CID will have an appointed civilian director like NCIS. There will be a mix of civilian agents and enlisted uniform agents. This will be somewhat like AFOSI. A lot of press has been kicked out about this decision. They are hoping the civilian 1811’s can provide experience/continuity and build relationships with local/state/fed agencies. They don’t have any idea about the exact numbers yet. Obviously, hiring, training, paying civilian 1811’s is expensive from a budget perspective. They are going to use this new model at Fort Hood, Fort Bragg, and Fort Carson first. From there they probably make adjustments and continue to develop the system. Will be interesting to see what happens!

    I wasn’t aware. I went through the entire 31D enlistment option for recent college grads but went with another option as well.

    Yes the program still exists. Source: I was going to enlist as a 31D, however I was presented another opportunity instead. MEPS took too long whether or not to approve of my Lasik surgery.

    The process goes: meet with a recruiter, inquire about the CID program, then start filling out the various forms. Theres a number of CID specific forms you have to get, along with getting 3 to 5 character references.

    I thought that CID always had a few civilian 1811s. I remember reading a few years back that the Army had introduced an enlistment option that would allow recruits to go in as a 31D, if they met some basic education requirements. Not sure if that program still exists.
