Federal Law Enforcement National Job Recruitment Initiative

(Houston, TX) Several Federal law enforcement agencies are continuing recruitment initiatives for the hiring of new employees across the nation. These Federal agencies need you, partly due to retirements, but primarily because of urgent security needs arising from nationwide terrorist threats. Participating agencies from the Department of Justice include the DEA, FBI, ATF, US Marshal’s Service, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons, as well as from the Department of Homeland Security; U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and U.S. Secret Service, and from the IRS, U.S. Postal Service and others are all seeking American citizens to join the ranks of Federal law enforcement employees here in Texas and nationwide.

For the federal government to be effective and efficient it needs to have the best and brightest employees who want to serve their country and who are willing to share their knowledge, skills and abilities for the betterment of the nation. The WorkSource, a non-profit organization, and North Harris College is partnering with these agencies to help coordinate a special career fair scheduled for Friday, August 27, 2004, at North Harris College campus located at 2700 W. W. Thorne Drive, Houston, Texas 77073, from 10 am – 3 pm. Providing security for the American people is a demanding responsibility, U.S. law enforcement agencies cannot risk being understaffed as they work to prevent tragedies like those of September 11, 2001.

Without question there are many qualified individuals in the Gulf Coast region who may be interested in a rewarding law enforcement career with the federal government. If you cannot attend this special event, a good place to learn more about opportunities for federal jobs, please visit USAJOBS at www.usajobs.gov or contact Special Agent Jose Gonzalez, Recruiting Coordinator with the Houston Division of the Drug Enforcement Administration @ 713.693.3141. The U.S. government agencies are equal opportunity employers.
