502nd Security Forces Group is hiring

By Andrew Patterson 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

The 502nd Security Forces Group is looking to hire civilian law enforcement personnel at all Joint Base San Antonio installations.  There are multiple positions available and numerous benefits that come with the job.

“JBSA is a very important facility, a national interest, and protecting it is vital to maintaining the capability of us to protect the United States,” said Merry Wermund, 502nd Security Forces Group executive director. “Our civilian workforce helps to support our military personnel as defenders go forward.”

The competitive positions offer a starting annual pay ranging from $39,165 to $63,063. Benefit packages include individual and family insurance (medical/dental/vision), 13 days annual paid leave, 13 days annual sick leave, protected time off, set schedules, voluntary overtime opportunities, annual uniform allowance, paid training, and opportunities to advance.

“I see this opportunity as a way to contribute to an exciting, forward-thinking and fast-moving organization,” said Jason Eglinton, 902nd Security Forces Squadron police manager. “Types of training include patrol and gates, collision investigation, uniform evidence detective/investigator, crisis intervention, forensic statement analysis, advanced interview and interrogation, military police Investigator academy, to name a few.”

The type of person that is a good potential fit has character traits and qualities of professionalism, bravery, strong ethics, deep respect and knowledge of laws, being a team player and a servant’s heart.

“My experience working within the SFG has been great. I work in an environment, where my suggestions to improve internal processes are considered and encouraged,” said Ramon Conde, 502nd Security Forces Squadron, assistant operations officer. “I’m able to collaborate with internal and external agencies and aid our Security Forces Group to meet mission requirements, which can have Air Force-level impacts.”

“There are so many wonderful things about working in law enforcement. It is challenging but very rewarding,” Eglinton said. “I have always wanted to work in law enforcement starting my security forces career in 2004. Once I separated, I was given an opportunity to come back to the security forces family as a civilian.”

“The job requires the ability to bring order to chaos,” said Jammie Space, 502nd Security Forces Squadron, deputy director. “However, if you are someone of strong moral character, you will find satisfaction knowing your actions are safeguarding the public you've sworn to serve.”
