The salary range for an ICE Special Agent is $40,000 – $68,000. There is an added Law Enforcement Availability Pay and ICE agents qualify for Federal benefits. Retirement is at age 50 or after 20 years of service. Relocation fees may be covered when special agents are reassigned to new locations but moving expenses are not paid for newly hired agents reporting to their first posted assignment.
To apply for a position as a special agent with ICE you must be less than 37 years of age, be a U.S. citizen and must have resided in the United States for three of the past five years. ICE Special Agents are authorized to carry firearms. A person convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence cannot possess a firearm or ammunition and cannot apply to become an ICE special agent. Six to twelve weeks after an initial written examination, you will be scheduled for a day of testing which will include a structured oral interview, a writing sample assessment and a personal interview.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the largest investigative agency in the Department of Homeland Security, is responsible for enforcing the nation's immigration and customs laws. ICE has more than 20,000 employees working in 400 offices in the U.S. and around the world.
The agency’s more than 6,500 HSI Special Agents investigate cyber crimes, smuggling, immigration crime and national security threats, working both within the United States and around the globe. Smuggling may involve weapons and drugs, as well as human trafficking. Working within the borders of the United States, IEAs perform a wide variety of duties focused on immigration infractions. They investigate, identify and arrest individuals who are not authorized to be in the United States, including those working illegally. They are involved in various aspects of the prosecution and detention of illegal aliens. IEAs also process aliens for removal from the United States to their countries of citizenship
Educational requirements for an Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent include a bachelor's degree in any subject. However, common degrees for Immigration Agents are criminal justice or homeland security degrees. You must have resided in the United States three of the last five years and be a United States citizen. You must be under 40 years old and must have work experience— preferably with the federal government— pass a written test, a background check, a physical exam and possess a valid driver's license.
ICE agents may either be involved with customs issues or immigration issues. They may be asked to examine the credentials of those entering the United States, perform surveillance on persons of interest for either customs or immigration violations, or act as a liaison with other agencies. They frequently work with the FBI, the Border Patrol and other elements in the Department of Homeland Security in the pursuit of potential threats to U.S. citizens. They may also be asked to inspect documents and other cargo at customs checkpoints.
Federal Law Enforcement Retirement Coverage 12(d): Criminal Investigators are covered under the provisions of both the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) 6 (c) or the Federal Employees Retirement System. Employees covered by either retirement system that reach age 50 or over with at least 20 years of service as a law enforcement officer are eligible for law enforcement retirement. Health Insurance: The Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) program offers you a choice of health plans that allow you to select the kind and amount of insurance protection you require. The Government pays part (not more than 75%)
The Student Volunteer Program offers unpaid training opportunities. These opportunities help students gain work experience related to their academic program, explore career options and develop personal and professional skills. Program experiences can vary, but often: Allow career exploration early in a student’s academic career, Provide exposure to new and emerging occupations, Give academic credit for work performed (if approved by educational institution), and Provide experience that will enhance a student’s ability to obtain paying jobs in the future http://www.ice.gov/about/offices/enforce ment-removal-operations/
