Great thank you Chief. So, does anything change In the application process because I would currently be a reservist? Also, I would already have A TS clearance, could that speed things up? Other than that, it seems pretty straight forward. I would currently be holding an job at the time of me applying. That sounds like a great schedule and is something I think that would benefit me more so than the rigid one weekend a month 2 weeks out of the year. Thank you.

I'm sorry...this question totally slipped past me. If you already hold a current TS clearance, then this would certainly speed things along. You just need to be sure it doesn't expire prior to application to CGIS.  Remember, they're only good for five years. As far as the application process goes, it's the same for AD and SELRES.

Quick question. Where would one get started trying to join the reserves as an investigator? I have been a full time LEO for 10 years, have a Bachelor's Degree and I have been assigned to a Federal Task Force for the last 8 years with a Secret Clearance through the DOJ. I have no prior military experience. I called a Reserve Recruiter and she didn't seem to be able to help me. Just looking for some guidance to get through the process.

Any intel would be greatly appreciated.

Once the CGIS detachment decides to bring you on board, they will coordinate with the local recruiter to begin the recruitment process to bring you into the CGR.  Understand that this is not something that will go quickly, as there are effectively two parallel recruiting processes happening.  The one thing you need to find out before you do any of this is if the local CGIS detachment even has any openings (AKA billets).  Each unit only has so many billets and if they're full, you're out of luck.  Let me know where you are, and I'll get you contact info for the local detachment.

Ok. So you would want to contact our Gulf Region office, located in the Hale Boggs Federal Building in NOLA.  I'll get the phone # for you next week

Been a municipal officer for 8 years, the last of which has been as a Detective. I’m curious about this rating. Can anyone speak to how often and how long IV deployments tend to be?

Greetings... I retired from the CG Reserve back in December after a total of 29 years and change between the Army Reserve, Inactive Reserve,  and CG Reserve. The last 14 years were spent as an IV at Coast Guard Investigative Service (CGIS) Detachment Los Angeles/Long Beach, so I can answer any questions you may have about the IV rating or the Reserves in general. 

To answer your question, first you need to understand the difference between a deployment and an activation.  If you're deployed, it means you have been activated (in other words the CG is now your full time job) and are being sent somewhere other than your normal duty station.  If you're activated, it means you're on active duty and reporting to your unit.  As for length, it just depends on what the reason for the activation is.  While at CGIS, I was activated three times ( a total of five times over my entire CG career).  I was activated for a year under Title 10 orders, 2006-2007, 60 days under Title 14 (deployment to New Orleans for Operation Deepwater Horizon) in 2010, and 30 days for operational support (deployment to CGIS Alameda, CA for manpower shortage) in 2015.

Let me know what other questions I can answer for you

Regards
