Recently found this interesting Video wich shows Special Agents who are with the Mobile Security Deployment of the U.S. State Department`s Bureau of Diplomatic Security Service.

It contains Information over their assignments and also include a Behind the scenes look at one of their training exercises.

ABC News Behind the scenes look of the Bureau of Diplomatic Security Services Mobile Security Deployment

I know this is an older post, but I feel like I should shamelessly plug here.

Our OpTempo is intense, and we are hurting for agents. A lot of folks have gotten burned out and left because they're overworked due to the shortage of bodies, and then them leaving exacerbates the problem. That said, it is a great career and, with perhaps one exception, I can't imagine something else like this outside SOCOM or HRT.

I'd strongly encourage those of you here on SS that are interested in a follow on career outside the armed services to go to careers.state.gov and sign up for email alerts for when Special Agent hiring opens again. It can easily take 12 to 24 months to start training after you are initially interviewed.

We are one of the only agencies that front loads your military time towards retirement instead of tacking it on the backend. You can make really good money if you're willing to volunteer for deployments (typically 30 to 90 days duration) in addition to what you are voluntold to do. Many agents (I'd swag most, honestly) easily clear 100k their first year out of training. Additionally, not all of your travel is to terrible places- you'll get to see so much of the world that it puts the Naval service to shame.

Please feel free to PM me if you are interested and have any questions or would like to be connected to a recruiter.

We’ve had a good amount of your dudes come to us when we had 1811 lateral announcements. Their reasons for jumping ship were exactly as you outlined.
