I wanted to put this up because I have received several notes from guys who have been approached for work with CJPS.  And hence, this latest news is why the companies have been actively recruiting for this stuff recently. Hell, between this, maritime security and WPS, experienced security contractors are certainly becoming a hot commodity.

What is cool with these contracts is that some of them do not require you to be a former police officer. They have protective details and various other support functions required by the program.  So definitely check out the companies below and research their career sections if you are wanting to get into some of this work. Definitely ask around at the forums if you want to know more about the project/company.

Also, there is no telling what company will go where, and this is IDIQ stuff. But the synopsis does list a few of the countries this program is active in. Here is the quote: “Program countries/areas include Afghanistan, Haiti, Iraq, Kosovo, Lebanon, Liberia, Sudan, and the West Bank.” And seeing how much money this program is getting, I imagine they will be recruiting for awhile.  If anyone has anything to add, please feel free to do so in the comments section. -Matt

These multiple-award IDIQ contracts (herein referred to as “contracts”) succeed the CIVPOL multiple-award contract.
