    The process for the FRB has changed over the past year or so (and getting more like other agencies in their processing). It's now, like any other department - looking for the best qualified. I don't know much of the LA branch but know folks at the SF branch.

    Read up on the job announcement, get there early - ask a few of what the job entails before your interview. Read through the Patriot Act and good luck.

        Man, the FRB Police! A couple of years ago, two of my guys pursued a coked-out driver. The knucklehead went wrong way on a one-way, downtown, ran the red light at the intersection and t-boned another driver. This all happened right in front of the FRB.

        I went to get all the witness statements for the resulting use-of-force and was amazed to see those FRB guys all tac-geared out, complete with 9MM sub guns at the ready.

        Sir112, it's been awhile but we've spoken before, good luck with this one, guy!

          Kieth, yes it has. i persued a career as a real estate agent and everything is going well. But theres still something missing in my life. I still have the urge to be in Law Enforcement. i know that the FRB is a small agency and only protect the FRB building. but at least im in law enforcement. then maybe ill persue my career with LAPD later. i dont want to go into the process with LAPD again and get dq'd. i want to show city personnel that im well qualified and have some form of LE under my belt.

          take care,

            just asking here...

            why go to the FRB, assuming you're going full time there and have a loss in earnings and protect a building / walk around the block? why not go reserve somewhere - have the option (depending on the agency) to work a paid event or handle your volunteer time out in the field?

                have to find the ones that pay..

                even if not, municipal experience will far outweigh what you'll be exposed to at the FRB (I'm not knocking them, it's just a different atmosphere there...).

                even if volunteer, 16 hours a month... mo' betta fur ya.

                  check several of the OC agencies- they actually pay 20+/hr to be reservists-but at least you keep the real estate gig. I know we've also "talked" in the past.Don't just hang up on LAPD,but remember that there are also other options- L.A. county PD is hiring like crazy and processessing fast,Santa Monica Pd and alot of local So.Cal Depts are hiring,even look into the CSU campus police depts(CSULB,CSULA,CSUDH,CSUN,Cal poly Pomona ) -each will get you a CA.POST certificate.not saying that the FRB police is nothing,but you may not get POST certified,and there are very few Fed policing jobs out on the west coast compared to back east.If you tried to lateral over to a CA. dept,you might have to go thru a full academy again.If this is what you want ,cool,but don't just grab at the first thing that sounds like an alternative-FRB may be tougher to get into than you might think,so do your best.good luck.

                    Just got back from the Interview.
                    i was in there for about 45 minutes asking me questions left and right. after my interview i was escorted to get my fingerprints. the personnel who was fingerprinting me stated that i passed the interview if i was sent down there. DOA, im looking into the campus pd, and other agencies. i am looking into the different Reserve possibilities as well. Its good to talk to you all again. keep in touch.

                      Could you explain more if you are still in the hiring process. Also, I'm in the hiring process with the SF branch. Hope I get in.

                          No federal pension

                          The problem with FRB is they are not covered law enforcement. They don’t get the 20 year retirement (6c/12d ). They also don’t attend FLETC (Federal Law Enforcement Training Center) in Glyco, Georgia. You are an employee of the Federal Reserve which is a private institution, so no federal pension.

                          If you want a foot in the door for Federal Law Enforcement. I would suggest (IMHO) CBP, DEA, ICE or ATF because most positions don’t need a college degree. The pay is a lot better at these agencies. You will top out as a GS-11 (60,000), GS-12 (72,000) or GS-13 (85,000) for non-supervisory positions. All are hiring now.

                          Good Luck!

                            I believe so! Look under careers, it's under Protection Officer I.

                              The position is 99.9% standing at your post type duties. Like junior gman stated, no FLETC approval for their academy, which in the feds a standard. It's a intersting position I would assume. Good luck to those applying.
