DC rate is $43,691 (2006) - is that on the LEO rate or just GS with locality?Quote:

(non-LEO Fed here - LEO in my other job)
3 years, 10 months, 13 days, 5 hours, 33 minutes and 2 seconds until retirement MRA and 20 years service, but who's counting?? :D
The job doesn't sound too bad except I wouldn't want to work in any of the locations. D'oh.
I have rode with DC Law a couple of times and that job is a kick ass job.....
More of a Federal Highway patrol because they really don't take calls for service per say.....and are allowed to roam a lot. We did speed/DUI enforcement on the parkways around DC.....and patroled the areas around the momuments....
Too bad my ass is over 37.....
Ehhh, me personally, if I wanted to not answer calls, stop cars all night, and get paid good money, I'd go State Police/Highway Patrol. I'm sure the Park Police is a good job, especially for the guys winding down in their careers.
Yeah, that 37 limit is a bummer (of course, they can waive that whenever they want to...).Quote:

Some of their upper ranks here are mad that POST won't give them Colorado Peace Officer status (even though one Denver court honored their status, the rest of the state does not). The guys who actually do the work don't care - and they are really great.
No....He is with USPP....which falls under (as stated about) The Dept. of Interior.....Quote:

I agree with Bear on this...let's not forget that USPP is also somewhat plugged into the federal pipeline. That's a big perk in and of itself. I think DC flies armed if he so wishes.
