  • Afosi Sa Vacancy

    Has anyone else seen the vacancy or applied for the Air Force OSI civilian SA positions? It just recently opened up for civilian applicants. I don’t see many threads on the agency. I don’t know much about the agency either other than its comprised of both civilian and active duty/reserve agents. I'm curious as to how that works; do the service member SAs have arrest authority for civilian offenders? Does anyone work for OSI or have experience working with them? Has anyone been thru the hiring process? Any information would help.

    OSI civilians are federal series 1811 investigators, the same as any other federal investigator. My limited knowledge is with the active duty military types but I know that they have full arrest powers. I know the military guys had some strange rules placed on them as far as carrying weapons off duty and some others. There are a couple OSI SA's on here some I'm sure one will chime in.

    Have you been to the OSI web site? http://www.osi.andrews.af.mil/

    OSI has some really cool HSLD stuff going on, combined with hours of office time.

        Hiring process is pretty fast paced. 3 (most likely) consolidated interview locations. You are pre-ranked before your interview, so really concentrate on your KSAs. Within weeks of your interview, they'll notify your whether you made it, made it as alternate, or no-go.

        All civilians MCIOs have full arrest authority. Active counterparts are limited based on the posse comitatus, but I've heard of exceptions (at least on USACIDC).
        George: What kind of a person are you?
        Jerry: I think I'm pretty much like you, only successful.

          I was going to apply but decided not to. They have a disclamer that if you live in an area where there is not a AF base, the application wil not be considered. There is not any in my State. Bummer..... Good luck to all who apply and thanks for the post!

            Oh I didnt see that. I live close to the AFB in Jacksonville, even though I live in GA. I wonder if that will disqualify me.

                    AFOSI does a lot of overseas work and you have to sign a mobility agreement. They seem to have a large contingent of agents in the Middle East and a number have been killed supporting their mission in Iraq.

                      My friend was in AFOSI for 7 years, but ended up finally quitting because she was tired of being moved around a lot! She mentioned that it is essentially a given that you will be relocated every few years or so. I'm not sure if that is the norm or not, but thought I would add what little info I have. AFOSI guys, please chime in if this info is way off. Thanks.

                          exactly-i think 3 or 4 died at once in the same humvee- alot of civilian mil. invest. agencies have agents based in iraq/afghan on a voluntary basis-my question would be what is the policy going to be once the volunteers dry up? mandatory deployments? can OSI/CID/NCIS "demand" that their agents go on a deployment or face some kind of sanction? anyone have any policy or insight on that?

                            I cant find the disclaimer either. It does seem a little silly to only have bases handle hiring when there are field offices all around.

                              You do not have to live near a base to get hired. You will have to live near whatever base you get assigned to after hireing/school.

                              As a Civilian Agent, you have different hoops to jump through than Active Guys.

                              You will move several times in a 20 year career, or if you specialize in somthing, you can stay put for a long time.

                              We do a lot of missions that are far beyond the normal scope of investigative agencies. Much of our work is normal investigations, but the small percentage of really interesting stuff is almost beyond imagination.

                              We have lost 7 agents in OEF/OIF. And have had many seriously injured. War is a full contact sport, and we are still a military agency.

                              Our civilains can fill several different catagories, some of which are deployable to the desert. All the information is available on the AFOSI Homepage. Goodle AFOSI and look for the Join area.
