QUANTICO, Virginia — Do you think you have what it takes to become a special agent with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command?

A recent data survey of Soldiers stationed in Hawaii shows that more than 9,500 Soldiers meet the rank and service requirements, but only about 160 of those Soldiers meet all the stringent qualifications for immediate acceptance — which is less than 1 percent of the force.

Fortunately, there are things Soldiers can do immediately to make themselves eligible to join the team and become a federal agent.

To better inform Soldiers about a career with the command, commonly known as CID, Lt. Col. Larry Dewey, commander, 19th Military Police Battalion (CID), will host a two-hour recruiting presentation, Jan. 16, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at the Sgt. Smith Theater on Schofield Barracks.

“Our stringent selection criteria is an indicator of the type of Solider who serves in our formation,” said Special Agent Brice Rae, the battalion’s operations NCO. “We are constantly looking for young warriors who want to take stewardship of the Army profession to another level. I know there are Soldiers out there looking for more, looking for a bigger challenge. We are trying to give those Soldiers a road map to an opportunity they have earned through their honorable service.”

CID serves a population of more than one million Soldiers, civilians, contractors and family members in the U.S. and overseas. CID Special Agents are sworn federal officers, responsible for investigating felony-level crime where there is an Army nexus.

Agents in the field routinely conduct protective-service operations for the Department of Defense senior leadership and counter-narcotic operations, develop criminal intelligence and work with other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies worldwide to solve serious crime.

During the briefing, guests will hear firsthand accounts of the training involved and discover what CID special agents do, day-in and day-out.

Among those sharing their craft will be special agents serving in specialties, such as a polygraph examiner, a sexual assault investigator, a forensic science officer, a digital forensic examiner, a protective services agent and a new apprentice CID special agent.

For more information about the presentation or if you would like to arrange an interview before the Jan. 16 briefing, contact Special Agent Michael Ringman at the Schofield Barracks CID Office, located next to the Provost Marshal Office on Lyman Road. Call 655-1989.

The CID presentation will conclude with a question and answer session, and for some, may result in the initiation of a CID special agent application.
