DOD police hiring procedures
Jun 30th, 2004 at 9:23pm
Print Post  
I have a 4 year Administration Justice degree, I have 5 points veteran’s status, Hispanic Bilingual in Spanish, Nationally registered EMT. I’m presently an investigator for bail bonding company for fugitive retrieval. I applied for a GS-5- 0083 DOD police in an Army base about in March 2004. On May 13, 2004, I was contacted by a Detective telling me I was #7 for 12 openings, out of 40 applicants, and that he needed my Social Security Number and date of Birth to begin the background investigation, and I would be called by the chief of police in about a week. I never received a called. About a month later I checked up on with Human resources and I was told I was not selected, there was a hiring freeze, there was no budget, I was “way down” the list, my college degree was not for police work.

A week later, while I was jogging in the Army base, I had applied for, I noticed a DOD police cruiser pulling over another vehicle and an officer and a trainee stepped out. The following day I called human resources to inquire about my placement on the list and case specialist refuse to tell me, trying to say the chief had the list, and I had to remind her she has a copy of the list. Still she would not tell me and gave me the direct line to the chief. The chief was also evasive about my placement on the list, saying I was way down the list, (I have not even given him my name yet). After I insisted more, he asked my name and again said I was far down the list, when I informed him I was a vet, he said I should be on top, but there were 6 other disabled veterans that had already taken all the available positions. Then he tried to explain how my degree was not for police work. He still has not told me my placement on the list, just that 6 other vets had taken all the positions.

After the conversation with the chief, I called human resources and I spoke with a manager and I asked him what my ranking was, when he tried to switch me to the woman that will not answer my questions, I explained she will not answer me. He then went and got the list and told me I was #7, and that the list was canceled because there were not eligible candidates, and they were asking for a new list and a new announcement for the position would come out soon. I asked how many slots were open; he said 11 spots were open. (only one person was hired form the list I was on) I also asked him about the budget for the academy and he confirmed candidates have to go to the federal academy; a 4 to 5 week course (is an Army regulation). And they have the budget to send candidates to the academy.

Does anyone know what the hiring practices for DOD police are? Can they simply ignore qualified candidates and dismiss anyone with out giving reason? Can anyone suggest a course of action?

Cop jobs are usually very hard to get, but a job as a DoD cop [sic] should be extremely easy to get.  From the sound of your post, they had budgetary problems that prevented you from getting hired.   Lips Sealed

E-mail me with the base you are talking about, sounds familiar and I have an EEO complaint filed right now. I'm sure I'm no the only one getting screwed there. As for the hiring practices .... The Chief (hiring authority) gets carte blanche to pick whoever he wants off the certification list, that is any qualified individual. Let's say the qualification range is 60 to 100 points to be referred, and you have 99 points and Joe Schmuckately has 61, the Chief is justified in picking "Joe" without rhyme nor reason and hiring him over you with a "99". Pretty fair I'm sure. I'll be happy to share the whole fiasco with anyone off-line !! Semper Fi !
