  • Supreme Court Police

    Hello all. This is my first post. I’ve searched extensively for information regarding the Supreme Court Police. Everything is mostly a few years old, or doesn’t contain a lot of information. I’ve been selected to move forward to take the POST. I’ve taken it before so I’m not worried. However, anyone know what they look for in a good candidate? I’m 23, have my Bachelors in Criminal Justice with various college certificates included Homeland Security Law Enforcement Specialist, Criminal Profiler, and Security Management. I also have 3 and a half years experience healthcare security. Our organization was ranked 9th in the country for best security program. And was ranked the best healthcare security program by IAHSS(Lindbergh Bell Award). We have Tasers, OC spray, baton, handcuffs, body cams, vests, and metal detectors all on our person. I just want to make sure that I’m a good candidate. It probably doesn’t matter, but I’m also an Eagle Scout.
    I only ask because I live in Florida and I don’t want to fly back and forth to DC if I’m more than likely not going to move forward. I don’t want to waste my time or theirs. Just want your thoughts. Thanks!

    Unless you don't meet the minimum requirements for the position, how are wasting your time and their time?

    We don't know the other applicants' qualifications and suitability for the job. You could be the most qualified or the least qualified. You won't know 1 way or the other unless you successfully pass each phase of the process.

      On a side note, I would consider leaving that out on your application. As a fellow Eagle Scout, I've gotten somewhat negative reactions from both a prospective employer and a previous landlord when I told them that I was an Eagle, due to the recent sh**storm of everything from homophobic accusations, pedophile scout leaders, ect.

        All that great stuff but if you don't meet the standards for a government clearance, then you won't be hired.
        I don't answer recruitment messages....

          That 9th ranking is an application killer. If your organization was top five, you'd be a shoo-in. Six and seven would be a maybe. Nine is a no-way, no how.

            It's called the Supreme Court for a reason, bub. They only eat supreme pizzas. They only listen to Diana Ross and the Supremes. And they most certainly only hire the most supreme applicants.

              I disagree.

              I'm not an Eagle Scout but both my sons are, and I helped several achieve that accomplishment as a Scout leader for over 10 years. I've also been responsible for recruiting and hiring people for a lot of years in a prior career.

              While it may be a bit odd for someone in their 30s or 40s to put that on a resume, I feel it's appropriate for someone with less life experience to use that as a differentiator. I would say that same for any high-level accomplishment for other youth organizations like 4-H, Girl Scouts, FBLA, etc.

                I took the written test 15+ years ago...it was the easiest LE test I've ever taken at any level of government. I got called back for an interview and turned it down after changing my mind about wanting to live in and around DC.

                I have no idea what they "look for" in a candidate. I remember from my research back in the day that they're primarily enforcement/security for the Supreme Court building and grounds and can be assigned to individual security for the Justices themselves.
