Department of Defense police, 20-year law enforcement retirement


Q. I did seven years with the Department of Defense Police Pearl Harbor (GS-083) and then changed to an 1811 position. Do those seven years as a 083 series count toward the 20-year law enforcement retirement?

A. It’s unlikely that your service in the 083 series would count toward a law enforcement retirement. However, that determination is one your agency will have to make based on the duties of your former position.
