Federal Protective Service-Direct Hiring

FPS is holding a direct-hire job fair at Travis AFB, CA on Wednesday. Interviews and conditional job offers for positions nationwide will be made on the spot. Anyone that is current or prior military with a background in law enforcement, physical security vulnerability assessment & miutigation, and/or investigative experience is encouraged to attend. If you know of someone looking for a federal law enforcement gig, this is the time, we're hiring!

I am not with FPS. A buddy of mine sent me this to pass on to anyone I may know. He is an Area Commander with the Fed Protective Svc. Its really short notice but maybe someone can make it in time? It says Wed, but I THINK it might be next Wed. Im trying to get clarification on the date. But I am starting my work week tomorrow at 0500, so if you are interested I dont know much more than whats in the email. So please dont wait for me to get you any information or respond to any PMs. If you need something let me know and Ill do what I can when I can. This is pretty rare for them to do I think. He said he does not know if or when FPS will be doing other recruiting drives or where anymore might be held.

I talked to me friend, he said to make sure people know that for this particular hiring process, you need to be a vet. Hence the line :
Must have DD214 or statement of service

I've never seen/heard of a 1801 within FPS, though, they do run other GS series jobs in support jobs.

Could there be an 1801 floating around..? Yeap...I've just never seen/heard of it. And if there is, they aren't 20 year retirement.

The only series's they are running LEO wise are 0080 and 1811.

1811 positions are the only ones with 20 year retirement at the moment.....

They have flown 1801 training specialist positions, last I saw was about 2.5 years ago. They were covered from what I remember.

Interesting..... Didn't know that. All the LEO folks I work around are all 0080 or 1811.

As stated, I know they have support folks in different job series but I didn't think any of them were covered by the 1811s.

Thanks for the info....

It was the Law Enforcement Specialist Regional Training Coordinator. I looked up the app I had put in at the time, but of course they (applicationmanager and usajobs) don't keep any of the notice info. I seem to remember it being a covered 1801 position.

Keep your eyes open. There's something out there referred to as the FPS Improvement Plan (google it) initiated I believe around 2010. DHS is not delegating authority under 1315 any longer, they extended us until this December. Our agency is most likely being taken over this December as part of a DHS/FPS demo project involving Level III and Level IV sites. Supposedly if the demo goes well DHS/FPS has a 10 year plan for all agencies under 1315 authority. My agency, National Institute of Standards & Technology/Dept. of Commerce has protested and thats how the extension was granted. Everyone in the planning/transition process has been hushed, so rumors are rampant. Your buddy who is area commander could probably fill you in more.

They (like all US Gov agencies) are slow as fuck when it comes to hiring....so we shall see if this occurs or not within the next year.

I applied for a 0080 LESO gig back in 2003 and made it thru everything and was just waiting for a FLETC date....and the budget got jacked up and that was that.

This being an election year, everything and anything could change with the next administration. Personally if this happens, I see it as a good thing for us K9 guys.
Good luck with your endeavor, but leaving Hawaii for DC?

GS-14/15 jobs only.....and it would have to be a great gig....

Though, If I found a good 13 gig in Europe, Japan, or Korea I might bolt with the hopes of doing my time there then coming back...

I always keep my options open....

ok to restart this thread?

Are the following figures accurate?

To carry out these activities in fiscal year 2015, FPS maintained a
workforce of 1,371 full-time equivalents (FTEs) at its headquarters and in
its 11 geographic regions (see fig. 1 below).17 FPS’s Plan and staffing
model focus on this federal workforce. This workforce consists of 1,007
law enforcement staff (inspectors, criminal investigators, and special
agents) performing physical security and law enforcement activities and
364 non-law enforcement staff providing mission support. FPS also
manages and oversees approximately 13,500 PSOs (i.e., contract
guards) posted at federal facilities.

I assume most of the 9,500 federal facilities are SSA and IRS offices.
