  • Civilian Police Hiring Requirements

    These are going to be the new requirements for all civilian police officers working for DoD (to include DA/DoN/DLA etc)

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    All applicants must meet the following requirements:

    Citizenship: Must be a United States Citizen at the time of application.


    Medical Requirements: Medical evaluation for applicants will be conducted prior to hiring. The duties of these positions require moderate to arduous physical exertion and/or duties of a hazardous nature. The following medical requirements apply to all applicants:


    Good near and distant vision, ability to distinguish basic colors, and ability to hear the conversational voice. Using the individual’s best optical correction, distance vision should be at least 20/30 in one eye and 20/100 in the other, or 20/40 in one eye and 20/70 in the other. Using the individual’s best optical correction, near vision should be correctable to 20/40 binocularly (both eyes open).


    Hearing: In general, pure-tone, unaided, air conduction hearing threshold levels should not exceed 30 decibel (dB) hearing loss on average for each ear at 500, 1000, and 2000 hertz (Hz), with no single level greater than 35 dB hearing loss at these frequencies. Thresholds should not exceed 55 dB at 4000 Hz in each ear.


    Applicants and employees must have the capacity to perform the essential functions of the position without risk to themselves or others.


    Applicants and employees must possess emotional and mental stability. In most instances, a specific medical condition or impairment will not automatically disqualify an applicant or employee.


    A medical condition or impairment is disqualifying only if the condition, for good medical reason, precludes assignment to or warrants restriction from the duties of the specific position. For some positions, the loss or impairment of a specific function may be compensated for by the satisfactory use of a prosthesis or mechanical aid.


    Reasonable accommodation shall also be considered in determining an applicant's ability to perform the duties of a position. Reasonable accommodation may include, but is not limited to the use of assistive devices, job modification or restructuring, provision of readers and interpreters, or adjusted work schedules.


    Physical Fitness Test: Applicants must successfully pass an initial and annual physical fitness test consisting of a 1.5 mile run (2.41 km) in 17:30 minutes; execute 21 pushups in 2 minutes; and jump vertically at least 13 inches within three attempts.


    Criminal History/Background: Candidates who have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor crime of domestic violence within the meaning of the Lautenberg Amendment are not eligible for this position (Title 18, U.S.C., Section 922(g)).


    Training: Must successfully complete the 11-week basic police academy.


    Security Clearance: A favorable suitability determination, as well as a favorable security clearance adjudication, are required before appointment. Misconduct in prior employment; criminal or dishonest conduct, abuse of intoxicating beverages, improper use of narcotics, drugs or other controlled substances, actions that create a reasonable doubt of loyalty to the United States, and financial issues such as excessive indebtedness, recurring financial difficulties, unexplained affluence, are all examples of issues that may lead to an unfavorable suitability determination or denial of a security clearance, and which would then be cause for withholding or rescinding an offer of employment.


    Driver’s License: Must possess a valid driver's license.


    Other Requirements: In accordance with DLA Directive 5025.30, One Book Chapter “Force Protection and Security Operations,” as a prospective employee as a DLA police officer, REQUIREMENTS WILL INCLUDE PASSING drug testing; possess a motor vehicle license; meet Lautenberg Amendment requirements; meet manual dexterity, vision, and hearing tests; pass an annual medical examination; pass the annual physical fitness test; pass annual weapons qualification; graduate from the Uniformed Police Training Program at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center; meet annual training and re-certification; must complete initial/annual CPR recertification and first aid; able to work shifts, overtime, weekends as required; wear the DLA police uniform; maintain a high state of appearance and hygiene; and able to wear chemical protection equipment.

      DoD is trying to mandate a set standard for all the branches to follow for civilian police hiring, especially now that all agencies will have PT testing yearly. Its what I got in email from my chief. I think AR190-56 actually now incorporates alot of the stuff since it has been signed off by the PMG and JAG. I know several unions are waiting to challenge it.

            No. AR 190-56 and OPNAV 5580.1 (navy equivalent) and whatever the AFI is, is going to be required to add in some of the requirements. All DoD (branches included) will be required to run a yearly CCH on all officers along with running a motor vehicle records check. They are incorporated into the instructions along with the pt testing program.

                  I don't know about your source, as this did not come up, at least in this format at my last meeting with a few of the DON movers.

                  I do know that NCIS is again pushing to create a uniformed division that would handle law enforcement on CONUS installations. NCIS released a "road map" to this a few weeks ago.

                  Listed among the entry level requirements and competencies are...

                  Prerequisites:
                  • High School diploma or equivalent
                  • Valid drivers license
                  • Criminal history check NCIC, DCII, Lautenburg
                  • Background investigation (DONCAF)
                  • Medical exam
                  • Physical Readiness Test(standards not yet set as of the beginning of Aug)
                  • Drug test
                  • Psych test
                  • Security clearance (eligible for secret)

                    Recommended
                    :
                  • Minimum 21 years of age
                  • 2 year degree or 6 months general experience and 6 months specialized experience. A formal police academy can be substituted for experience.


                  The road map goes on to list all the core's that would be required for each level an officer holds within the department, all the way to the operations chief at the CNIC level.

                  Also, as a side note, the navy no longer uses the 5580.1 series. They merged that together with the PhySec, making the 5530.14E the current opnav guidance.

                    The type of discharge has always been the same from my understanding. To me it clearly states "general discharge". That's going to be an issue with most Federal and local Agencies.

                      A couple of questions regarding the civilian police:

                      How "military" is the job? By that I mean is it like being in the Army again or is it more typical of an actual civilian police department?

                        Depends upon the facility. Where Iam at we are all civilians. No MP's. We run everything like a civilian department.

                        It came from my chief who supposedly got it from the senior DA guy over in Arlington. The minimum requirements are going to be enforced, especially pt and backgrounds. No more each facility doing its own thing. DoD is requiring the branches to add them into the criteria for hiring.

                        It, at least in my mind, is a step in the right direction for making DoD uniformed LE standard in terms of hiring and uniformity.

                          I agree that it would be a good step, but I haven't heard anything about this from the Under Secretary of Defense (P&R). When that office starts to talk about this, I think it will really happen.

                            Damn it - - how can a GD or GD Under H be a bad thing? That's sort of a pointless disqualifier

                              Honorable Discharge

                              To receive an honorable discharge, you must have received a rating from good to excellent for your service to the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force or Coast Guard.

                              Even though you only qualify for a general discharge, you may receive an honorable discharge under two circumstances.

                              1. When you are being separated because of a disability incurred in the line of duty

                              2. When you receive any awards for gallantry in action, heroism, or other meritorious service.

                              General Discharge

                              You receive a general discharge when you separate from the service, under honorable conditions, without a sufficiently meritorious military record to deserve an honorable discharge.
                              If, under condition 1 you received a GD then your disability will be the determinate factor that disqualifies you. If you do not meet military standards for physical and mental fitness, chances are you will not meet those standards in civilian LE.

                              Under condition 2, you are given a chance to redeem yourself in civilian life, but not sufficiently able to qualify for civilian LE due to issues within the military.

                              The job market for LEOs is becoming a selective benefit to agencies rather than candidates. With the massive number of good candidates - education and experience - agencies can afford to be highly selective and discriminatory in their selections.

                              Perhaps, with time and some stability in your life, you will be able to prove your worth and value to a less stringent agency.
