Work involves recognizing, developing, and presenting evidence to reconstruct events, sequences, time elements, relationships, responsibilities, legal liabilities, and conflicts of interest; conducting investigations in a manner meeting legal and procedural requirements; and providing advice and assistance both in and out of court to the U.S. Attorney’s Office during investigations and prosecutions. This work primarily requires knowledge of criminal investigative techniques, rules of criminal procedures, laws, and precedent court decisions concerning the admissibility of evidence, constitutional rights, search and seizure, and related issues in the conduct of investigations. Of note, in contrast to the work of Federal Police officers, Criminal Investigators are not typically concerned with independent individuals or small, local groups of individuals committing crimes on Federal property, unless they are germane to larger investigations. Rather, Criminal Investigators focus on suspected major offenses or violations of Federal laws, where the investigative assignment requires an extended period of time (e.g., days, weeks, or months) for completion. Criminal Investigators are not covered by federal law enforcement retirement provisions. Therefore, it does not include those financial benefits usually associated with Occupational Series 1811 positions (i.e. Law Enforcement Availability Pay (LEAP) and Law Enforcement Retirement benefits).
