Working for the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command (CID) may not turn out to be as slick and Hollywood-ized as, say, your typical episode of NCIS, but if you’re a veteran (or soon-to-be veteran), it’s certainly attractive, as the CID looking for qualified applicants to become highly-trained criminal investigators.
To qualify, applicants must be a U.S. citizen and must be at least 21 years old. Applicants must be no more than an E-5 (non-promotable). Those E-5s who are promotable, or those who have achieved E-6 but have one year or less time-in-grade, may apply with waiver. All applicants must have at least two years, but not more than 10 years’ time-in-service among other requirements. The complete listing of qualifications can be found on the CID website www.cid.army.mil.
To apply to become a CID Special Agent, prospective applicants should contact their local CID office or visit the Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID) website at www.cid.army.mil for additional information.
