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.
