  • question about fed LE positions? which ones to shoot for?

    What are some fed LE positions to look for, I know the border patrol is hiring like crazy but after working on the border and seeing the mess Well nevermind!

    My question is are there any other fed positions that are looking for people for when I get out of the Military?

        24, BS in CJA minor in military history, infantry background.

        I'm looking for work, physically compared to most of the other candidates I would put myself at the top 10% I like challenges, I like training.

        Financially I am going to be hurting for cash after the .mil

          If you want a Fed LEO gig with one of the big names....like ICE, DEA, USMS, FBI, FAMS, NCIS, etc....I would suggest going local for a few years....to get some good street time....work on your masters if you have the time....then start applying. You have till 37 to get hired....which gives you plenty of time.

          Not saying you won't get hired if you toss your hat in the ring, the local time on top of what you got already will give you a huge advantage when you do toss your hat in.

          Just my two cents.....as a lot of agencies are jammed up right now with budget issues......and they aren't going to go away anytime soon....

          I would also advise to think about what you want to do in LE.....as every Federal Agency has a different mission in life......

          Good luck...

            Fed Jobs

            www.usajobs.opm.gov

            Enter the above link. Then press the "series" tab Enter 1811 for special (criminal) Agent, 1801 for Special Agent or 0083 for Police Officer. You are more likely to get hired because of your military back round. The Govt takes care of it's personnel

              Federal LE positions can include:

              0006 (BOP Corrections Admin), 0007 (BOP Corrections Officer), 0025 (Park Ranger), 0080 (Security Specialist), and anything that starts with 18 (more common ones are 1801, 1811, and 1895....though you might find an 1802 or 1810 job that is LE. Not very common but they are out there from time-to-time, you just have to keep looking).

              When you pull up an annoucement, you have to look to see if the position is LE (because some are/some are not especially when it comes to 1801jobs) and ithen check to see if there is any age limits. The age limits are there for the special LE retirement and you must be hired by age 37 so that you can retire by 57 (mandated by federal law).

              Also might want to check with any specific agencies you are interested in as well. A lot of agencies are in a hiring freeze right now due to budget problems, so going local for a while might be an idea as well.

              Good luck.

                Kind of depends on what you want to do.

                Are you interested in "running and gunning," or doing investigations?

                Border Patrol will have you doing lots of running and gunning, but you aren't going to be doing much handling of CIs, working UC, writing search warrants, etc.

                Many of the investigative agencies might have a small degree of "running and gunning," but those guys are paid to be INVESTIGATORS. Therefore doing long-term complex criminal investigations using specialized investigative techniques and services is what you will do if you take one of those jobs.

                Both types of work are important, but they approach problems from different avenues. A BPA agent working to track and catch the smugglers at the border is different than the DEA and ICE agents working a two year complex investigation to take down the top echelon of a drug smuggling organization.
