            Not according to HR. They are eligble to test for promotion to police officer after 6 months of service.

                I tried contact Phily HR about these positions but was unable to ascertain an answer. Are these able to promote in to a Amtrak Police position? I'm interested in applying if its possible, and submit my application for the P/O position at the same time (Another posting). Wait to see what happens.

                Anymore information on the duties? Seems a slightly by vague but maybe thats all there.

                  LochRaven. I havent seen anyone hired or even contacted for these positions. I know they opened them up for Wilmington since it they are short handed.

                  As far as being promotable, you would have to spend some time in the position and then put in internally for police officer. Depending upon your work histroy, I know 2 security officers who were promoted less than a year after getting hired on.

                  If you put in for the P/O position in DC, you will need to re apply as they re advertised the position.
