    Sorry SgtCHP, this is an old thread that I revived because I was looking up info about CA DOJ today. I was curious what their retirement is, whether it was 3% @ 50 or not.
    Guess I should have looked at the date! Anyhow, here is the link to their retirement and benefits:

    I don't think they have gotten the 3% @ 50 as yet; but, it is certainly in their future. Again, it is a negotiable item under collective bargaining.

    http://ag.ca.gov/careers/civil.php

    There are a number of positions that are available. Drugs, firearms, Attorney General Investigator, etc. They are fully sworn peace officers for the State of CA. They are totally investigative - just like the FBI.

    What are the traditional rolls of Special Agents within the California Department of Justice? Are they police officers who are post certified? Are they equivalent to Federal Special Agents?

    What are their traditional duties? They are Law enforcement officers, right?

    And....
    Why is this the first time I've heard of them?

    Hmm, if they are under CalPERS 2% @ 50, why would any local officer under the 3% @ 50 plan switch to DOJ? That would be 30% less retirement if you did 30 years....

    I have several friends who are California DOJ Special Agents. Most of them were local LEOs prior to coming over to DOJ. They enjoy their jobs and get to work with every agency you could imagine. Depending on where you're assigned, you could be working anything from medi-cal fraud to gun cases. I hear the firerams unit is getting more folks, as investigative priorities change with the new AG in place.

    In addition to the Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement (BNE), the Department of Justice has agents assigned to investigate terrorist activity and criminal activity allegedly involving state employees. There are DOJ personnel assigned to conduct criminal profiles (much like the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit), but only a few agents are in this detail. DOJ agents are also assigned to the Firearms Unit and I believe they also have investigators assigned out of the Attorney General's Office who investigate major criminal cases that the local PD or County Sheriff's Office refers to them.

    There's not a huge number of DOJ Special Agents (compared to say the FBI), but (according to a friend who went to work there) it's a good gig wherever they assign you. DOJ Special Agents are POST certified full time peace officers. Their pay and benefits are good and they are in the CALPers 2% @ 50 plan.

    Criminal investigators at the state level. Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement works dope, often supervising local multiagency task forces. They have other divisions as well, but I am not familiar with the rest of DOJ.
