  • Are there any VA Police Officers O.T.A

    I recently applied for and recieved notice that I qualified for the Police Officer position in NY Harbor. Shortly after, I recieved a Notice of Availiabity. If there are any VA Police Officers who can advise me what the next steps are and how long the process takes, please reply.

        They are calling to set up interviews. Just a heads up but you do know they have no status in NYS as peace officers unlike other federal officers.

          That surprises me and they do carry. The CPL is so outdated. Those kind of things should be revisited.

            While they can carry on the job and off duty per HR 218, NYS does not give them peace officer status. So its kind of a grey area if they would need a pistol permit for off duty carry.

              I don't think they have a line in the cpl due to pension reason. Don't quote me on that though. Is that a federal agency?

                Yes. They police the VA hospital in Manhattan and Bay Ridge Brooklyn. Also the VA nursing home in St. Albans Queens.

                    Thanks guys for all the information, though I was under the impression that they were granted Peace Officer status, I re-read the CPL and the only VA Officers in the state that have the status are those assigned to the hospital in Batavia.

                      Just a heads up but they had some issues about a year ago where someone complained to news about them not being allowed off property.

                        Intresting. The chief interviewed me and offered me a job straight out.

                            Good story, we will have to just wait and see if the law will change. I am also still waiting for that interview call. Ive been around the corner a few times with law enforcement jobs and the waiting part gets me each time.

                              The law wont change for the VA police. While NYS can authorize them to be peace officers for certain things, the VA can still restrict them.
