    Department of Veterans Affairs Federal Police Officer Openings (US)

    www.USAJOBS.gov
    job code 0083

    The Department of Veterans Affairs has Openings for Federal Police Officer positions. I currently work in Michigan for the VA as a Police Officer, if you are a veteran of the armed forces you have a good chance of being hired. If you are a LEO nearing the end of your tour the VA loves to hire retired LEO's. If you are one of the many laid off LEO's in Michigan or like myself a young veteran with military law enforcement experience living in a state where its almost impossible to get a job as a LEO the VA may be a great stepping stone. They have multiple locations nationwide and room for advancement if your interested in staying with the VA for many years. The retirement however is only 30% for giving them 30 years so for young guys like myself without a pension coming in already its probably not going to be your final resting place. On the other hand if you have that pension its a great place to supplement that income. No chasing hoodrats over fences anymore or serving high risk warrants. You do deal with trained combat veterans on a daily basis who can be extremely dangerous if they ever decided to be. Verbal Judo and conflict resolution skills are a must you will be working in a Healthcare Provider atmosphere so being Johnny Law or Badge Heavy wont get you very far among staff and veterans. That being said check it out I didnt know the VA had Police until a friend informed me so I figured I would pass the word.

    I was asking specifically which facility in Michigan as I worked at the one in Battle Creek. I have NO desire to return to the VA. I'd lose money, give up the ability to have off duty carry of a govt owned firearm.

    I understood your question however I do not wish to disclose my current location to strangers I am sure you understand. Anyone with even a little know how could locate and identify me off of my basic information alone once my location is given. I am not exactly surrounded by other 26 year olds where I work lol.

    I am familiar with Battlecreek however, as well as the rest of the CBOCs and Main Hospitals within Michigan. I as for the carrying of a duty weapon off duty not sure I would really care about that. Now if I got a take home car well that would be sweet lol. I would like to possibly get a gig down at LETC as an instructor in the future. Starting as a GS-9 then bumping to 10, and 11 by your third year sounds sweet. Plus they are considered Special Agents not sure if they get the 1811 classification however.

    You're at Ann Arbor. I saw the position on USAJobs. It is no secret. Is your chief J.M who used to work at Battle Creek?

    I like VAMCBC. It had land and we were not assigned to just one building. As far as being a LETC worker, no thanks. I dealt with them once and dealt with Doyle once when he was an inspector. I'll stick where Iam at. I make more than most GS-11's with the OT.

    What? Sorry but look at this[B]..."[Biography:Six years as a United States Navy Master At Arms, duties ranged from three years at Naval Coastal Warfare Command as a Anti-Terrorism Force Protection Specialist, two years as a Public Safety/Base Police Officer, and one year assigned as a Protective Service Specialist. I am currently working for the Department of Veterans Affairs as a Federal Police Officer since April of this year./B]
    If that's not telling strangers...anyway. Instructors at LETC Special Agents, Thats a new one on here... Not sure what kind of BS you got fed there, but I can see you are new to the VA, being that you have only worked for them for 4 months...yeah in your profile there.

    And just some advice, you should care about carrying off duty if you are into the take home care deal, which not many agencies(federal) even do this.

    The profile information is not telling what so ever, no way anyone would be able to identify me from the information provided. As for the Instructors refering to themselves as Special Agents I was just taking what I heard at face value. The taking home of your duty weapon, I don't really care about the issue was all I was stating. I then stated a take home car would be better, ergo "with gas prices being so high and all" I know that federal agencies do not participate in that kind of program.
