      Actually you are referring to the old OPM regulation for 1811s which had a 21-37 age bracket. Therefore you are incorrect in your rebuttal. Also, please do not begin a sentence with "um", it only shows your incompetence. The 37 top limit for age was struck down in a suit against the US DoS recently for eligible veterans qwho were past the 37 mark. OPM determined that age had nothing to do with job performance and now allows those with eligible VA preference to apply and be hired past age 37. As far as the rest of federal law enforcement (non-1811s), agencies may vary in their age limit (Capitol PD still maintains their 37 limit while NGA or CIA is in the 40's).

      All that aside, Amtrak does not fall under OPM regulations as they are a "private" corporation and establish their own age brackets, which they do NOT establish - Amtrak has NO published age restrictions to become a Police Officer. Therefore, if they have no basis to an age restriction, they will fall under age discrimination law like any other private company. Therefore to say "[Amtrak is] looking to revamp the department with younger officers", would be a completely illegal hiring practice. Ok, I get it, it's one dude online saying that. However, I made the argument and I'm backing it up.

      So what dictates age in hiring for a PD? In the past it had to do with retirement issues commensurate with pensions, and had NOTHING to do with job performance. I am almost 40 and I will absolutely, positively, PT the **** out of 90% of 20-30 year olds "on the job" any day of the week (PM me and we'll make that happen youngsters). Sad because there are many veterans applying to LE agencies across the nation who are "OLD" by government standards but far from it in their heart, mind, and bodies. Just another indicator of the "pussification" of law enforcement. across our great land! Be safe out there boys and girls.
      I wish to take your pt challenge lol.

        I wouldn't expect to hear anything until after the announcement closes. The closing dates vary between the Amtrak and blueline.com sites.

        I did get a confirmation of application email.
        This is for all you new people. I only have one rule: everyone fights, no one quits. You don't do your Job i'll shoot you myself.

          Right on bro - that's the spirit! I'm in northern VA, so anytime, anywhere. Well, not anytime as I have a job, wife, and kids, but you know the deal.
