VA police is the armed and uniformed federal law enforcement service of VA. With nearly 90% of our police officers coming from a military background, they know what it means to be of service and to use their training to protect others.

As part of our support teams, the work of VA police is invaluable to the security of our facilities. Often, the face of one of our officers is the first that Veterans will see when they come through our doors, and the knowledge that you understand their experiences can put them at ease.

But your work doesn't have to be on the front lines. VA police officers also employ specialists. We have K-9 officers who provide an additional layer of security, as well as investigators who ensure that operations inside the facility are handled in a safe and legal way. There's also room to grow into a leadership role, if that's what the future holds for you.
