Deportation Officer Jobs
Deportation Officer Overview
A deportation officer is responsible for the overseeing of individuals who have been ordered to leave a country due to illegal entrance or other reasons. The officer will be responsible for the health and well-being, as well as the behavior, of an individual until the actual deportation takes place. Deportation officers are usually law enforcement officials who were promoted or volunteered to take the role. They work closely with immigration officials as well as the legal representation of the person being deported.
Deportation Officer Education Requirements
A deportation officer will usually need little more than a high school diploma or GED although some go on to obtain higher degrees. Before becoming a deportation officer, most have a few years of experience working in standard law enforcement. On-the-job training is given relating to how to treat the detained individual as well as the specific legal proceedings that will take place regarding deportation. A comprehensive legal knowledge is required as well as the ability to communicate clearly, even across language barriers.
Deportation Officer Job Market
The job availability for deportation officers is expected to grow by 6 percent by 2022, resulting in an estimated 24,390 new jobs each year. Deportation officers are usually employed by the government and US Citizenship and Immigration Services as individual police departments in much of the country have little need for them. Job applicants who demonstrate fluency in relevant languages have an edge over the competition as many illegal immigrants do not speak English.
Deportation Officer Salary
Deportation officers make an average yearly salary of around $82,000, although entry level wages are between $46,000 and $50,000. As an officer gains experience, his wage will increase. In addition, officers who have more relevant skills, such as being bilingual, can negotiate for higher wages.
