How to apply

The following documents are required of all applicants:

  1. Resume
  2. OF-306 Declaration for Federal Employment
  3. Police Applicant Pre-screening Questionnaire

The following additional documents are also required if applicable to you:

  1. Cover Letter (optional, but encouraged)
  2. Documentation demonstrating current employment as a federal, state, or municipal law enforcement officer; for applicants with federal experience this must be an SF-50 Notice of Personnel Action or equivalent
  3. FLETC Diploma and/or Transcript showing completion of the Uniformed Police Training Program (UPTP)
  4. DD-214 or Statement of Service
  5. SF-50’s showing FERS & FICA Special Retirement Codes (M, MR, or MF)
  6. Unofficial College Transcript

All applications are reviewed in the order that they are received. Failure to provide all application materials will result in your application being denied. Please note that all applications must be filled out in their entirety and be legible in order to be considered. You must complete, print, and sign the OF-306, as well as the Pre-Screening Questionnaire, then upload them along with your resume. These three documents are required in order to be considered. Please submit only these documents unless you have prior military service, have graduated from UPTP at FLETC, documentation demonstrating current federal, state or local law enforcement experience, or if you have federal experience necessary to meet the law enforcement retirement system age/time-in-service requirements. In those cases your DD-214, Statement of Service, and/or SF-50(s) must also be submitted. An unofficial college transcript is also required if you are using education to qualify. You are also invited to include a cover letter if you wish.
