What is the Veteran Recruitment Appointment?
VRA is a special hiring authority designed just for veterans that allows our Agency to non-competitively appoint an eligible veteran. An eligible veteran DOES NOT need to wait for a USAJOBS announcement before applying.
You may qualify under VRA if you:
- served during a war or are in receipt of a campaign badge for service in a campaign or expedition; OR
- are a Disabled Veteran, OR
- are in receipt of an Armed Forces Service Medal for participation in a military operation, OR
- are a recently separated veteran (within 3 years of discharge), AND
- separated under honorable conditions (honorable or general).
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW TO QUALIFY FOR VRA AS A PFPA POLICE OFFICER?
You must demonstrate at least one (1) year of law enforcement and/or security experience on your resume.
If separating from Active Duty, you will need a Statement of Service Letter showing your separation date and type of discharge.
Retired members of the Armed Forces are required to wait at least 180 days before being appointed to a civilian position in DOD.
