  • Coast Guard Investigator IV3

    Are there any current active or reserve USCG Investigators (IV3) on here? Or, are there any other members of the USCG with direct knowledge and/or experience with this rating on here?

    I am a current federal LEO interested in reserve opportunities with the USCG as an Investigator (IV3.) There is not a whole lot of info available online besides for what is on gocoastguard and uscg.mil. I have two questions:

    What training do RESERVE investigators go through? Do they go through the FLETC CITP? From what I have found, it seems like majority of the training is hands on for reserves.

    What types of assignments do reserve investigators typically get, and how is ''drill'''and assignments scheduled?

    Thank you in advance.

    I tried getting into the reserve CGIS that is advertised on gocoastguard.com. Recruiter had never heard of it, and told me to call the local CGIS office. After calling them and speaking to the SAC, he said there was no such Reserve Investigator position. Also spoke to members here on the forum and was told it is basically impossible to get into Reserve Investigator.

      I can answer some of your questions.

      Training: For reserve positions CGIS wants LE (i.e. municipal, federal, and state) with at least 3 years experience. They do not send you to training. The only CGIS Investigators who go to training (FLETC CITP) are the active duty USCG guys and full time civilian staff agents.

      Assignments: Typically the reserve agents do background investigations on USCG active duty members for things like secret clearances and so forth. But it can vary depending on the station where you are assigned.

      Drills: Usually on the weekends. However, the SAC wants reserve agents with quick response times (less than 1 hour). So you could potentially be called for drills and you would need to respond right away.

        1811 buddy does it in TX. No training, but he has been able to do some details. His 1811 gig is in same bldg as his reserve gig.
        ...and is commended as being worthy of trust and confidence
