    Good Evening
    I recently came across a listing on USAjobs for physical security specialist. Can anyone shed some light on what they do?

    Yep, Special Officer is not listed at all anymore as a position. Good catch.

    Makes sense. Also, if you notice you can still find the SO recruitment page on Google with a direct link to it. But if you access the main Secret Service website and go to their hiring page it only lists SA and UD job titles. It appears as though they have removed the special officer job description on the recruitment page which would point to the fact that they are reevaluating the position.

    For the positions (SA/UD) that are 6c covered have the wording of hired by 37 years old or maximum age of 40 if prior military. The Special Officer position doesn't fall into that, and I am betting it is a regular 30 year federal retirement. However the maximum age for this position appears to be not decided as of yet...meaning they could hire pass 40 years of age, since it is not a 6c covered position. I am betting it is a case by case, how fit the person is...etc.

    I have noticed the lack of age cutoff recently also but I believe they are under the same retirement system as SA and UD, so wondering if that’s just a typo. Just a guess though, I will ask a few SA’s over the next few days.

    Also even though no max age is mentioned in the requirements, it does have the “Maximum Age Restriction” veterans waiver paragraph at the bottom of the Special Officer recruitment page, like is listed on the SA and UD hiring pages. Why would they put that on there if there wasn’t a cutoff for that position?

    No, or it would have the following wording, as the SA and uniform division has;

    "Be at least 21 years of age at time of application and younger than 37 at the time of receipt of a conditional offer of employment to continue in the application process. Applicants with veterans’ preference must be at least 21 years of age and younger than 40 at the time of receipt of a conditional offer of employment to continue in the application process."

    I am just curious if the maximum age cut off is 37.

    They go to the federal law-enforcement training center.

    Apparently not, seems to be a maximum age, but not stated.

    Qualifications

    To be considered for special officer positions you must:
    • Be a U.S. Citizen
    • All applicants must be at least 21 years of age at time of application.
    • Visual acuity must be correctable to 20/20 in each eye
    • Qualify for a Top Secret clearance and undergo a complete background investigation, to include driving record check, drug screening, medical and polygraph examinations
    • Familiarity with all phases of protective responsibilities sufficient to assist in protective movements, cover designated security posts and drive protective vehicles
    • Proficiency in the use of various firearms
    • Knowledge of arrest techniques and procedures
    • Successfully complete all required training
    • Present proof of eligibility for veterans preference
    • The Secret Service prohibits employees from having visible body markings (including but not limited to tattoos, body art, and branding) on the head, face, neck, hand and fingers (any area below the wrist bone).
    Maximum Age Entry Restriction

    On August 26, 2009, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) published a memorandum for all Heads of Departments and Executive Agencies related to hiring of preference eligible veterans applying for federal positions with maximum entry-age restrictions.

    As directed by OPM, the U.S. Secret Service will conduct an analysis of all Secret Service positions having maximum entry age restrictions to determine whether a maximum entry age requirement is essential to the performance of the position. Applicants eligible for veterans' preference who exceed the current maximum entry age requirement will continue to be processed during this ongoing analysis. No final determination regarding affected applicants will be made until completion of this analysis. If it is the determination of the U.S. Secret Service that the requirement is not essential to the position, then the Agency will waive the maximum entry-age requirement for veteran's preference eligible applicants for that position.

    Proper notification to all affected parties will be published when the analysis has been completed.
