Job Description:

To qualify for this position, applicants must meet all requirements by the closing date of this announcement. Time-In-Grade Requirement: Applicants who are current Federal employees and have held a GS grade any time in the past 52 weeks must also meet time-in-grade requirements by the closing date of this announcement. For a GS-06 position you must have served 52 weeks at the GS-05. The grade may have been in any occupation, but must have been held in the Federal service. An SF-50 that shows your time-in-grade eligibility must be submitted with your application materials. If the most recent SF-50 has an effective date within the past year, it may not clearly demonstrate you possess one-year time-in-grade, as required by the announcement. In this instance, you must provide an additional SF-50 that clearly demonstrates one-year time-in-grade. Note: Time-In-Grade requirements also apply to former Federal employees applying for reinstatement as well as current employees applying for Veterans Employment Opportunities Act of 1998 (VEOA) appointment. To qualify for this position at the GS-06 you must meet the following Minimum Requirement: Experience: One (1) year of specialized experience that provided knowledge of a body of basic laws and regulations, law enforcement operations, practices, and techniques and involved responsibility for maintaining order and protecting life and property. Creditable specialized experience must have been equivalent to the next lower grade level (GS-05) in Federal Service; and may have been gained in work on a police force; through service as a military police officer; in work providing visitor protection and law enforcement in parks, forests, or other natural resource or recreational environments; in performing criminal investigative duties; or in other work that provided the required knowledge and skills. Specialized experience specific to this position includes: conducting foot, bike, and vehicle patrols; identifying and arresting violators; taking statements from witnesses; writing a variety of reports; conducting investigations; interrogating suspects; preventing, resolving, and investigating simple infractions to violent crimes and felonies; making arrests and performing booking procedures; and issuing citations. (This experience must be reflected in your resume to be credited to your rating.)NOTE: Substitution of Education for the specialized experience is not creditable; therefore, it is not necessary to submit transcripts. Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religions; spiritual; community; student; social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills and can provide valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience. Note: A full year of work is considered to be 35-40 hours of work per week. Part-time experience will be credited on the basis of time actually spent in appropriate activities. Applicants wishing to receive credit for such experience must indicate clearly the nature of their duties and responsibilities in each position and the number of hours a week spent in such employment. Physical Requirements: VA Police Officers must be capable of arduous physical exertion. This includes the ability to carry persons in emergency evacuations, to run to the assistance of offense victims, and intercede in physical disturbances. Any structural or functional limitation or defect which tends to interfere materially with a high degree of physical activity will disqualify. All applicants must:
a. Demonstrate to the physician's complete satisfaction the upper and lower body strength and movement coordination necessary to perform the functional requirements circled on the SF 78 associated with this standard.
b. Have good distant vision in each eye and ability to distinguish basic colors.
c. Be able to hear the conversational voice without the use of a hearing aid.
d. Possess complete and functional limbs.
e. Possess emotional and mental stability. Psychological Assessment. The initial and annual medical examinations must include a psychological assessment of the applicant/officer's emotional and mental stability by a psychiatrist or psychologist. Police officer duties include personal encounters with patients, visitors, and other employees. Encounters are often with mentally ill, irrational, or disturbed persons who, although assaultive or destructive, must be handled with understanding, full control of force, and unimpeded judgment. Any emotional or mental condition which could cause the applicant/officer to be a hazard to others or self during stress situations and physical altercations will disqualify. The psychological assessment will be limited to an interview by a psychologist or psychiatrist covering only job related factors.
