        Where do you guys see these requirements? Starting salary is a GS-05/6 equivalent of 33-36k. The residency thing is the only crappy thing however its only for the DS-06 position. Not the DS-05 position

          There are two annoucements on the DC website (I looked after you posted it) one for the 5 and one for the 6.

          Both of them said the following....towards the bottom of the announcement....

          Residency Requirement
          Residency Requirement: This position is subject to the Residency Requirement. Any person appointed to this position shall become a bona fide resident of the District of Columbia within 180 days of the effective date of appointment and shall remain a District resident for the duration of employment. Failure to become a District resident or to maintain District residency shall result in forfeiture of employment to the position for which appointed.


          As stated, if I was going to go uniform in DC.....I would take the pay increase and work for MPD......as I don't see these folks doing a lot of LE work when I am in DC. Most of the time, I see them either driving around.....or parked in front of DC City bldgs.....

            And also the DS-06 requires you to have graduated from an accredited law enforcement academy already....

            Speaking of which, for those who haven't been to a police academy, any idea what the training is like for this organization? I realize they are SPOs so just curious if they go to the MPD academy, an 'official' spo academy (like the University consortium) or none of the above....?

            Thx!
