Tetra Tech seeks Law Enforcement Advisor/Instructor Subject Matter Expert candidates for the anticipated United States Department of Justice’s Criminal Division’s International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program (ICITAP) and Office of Overseas Prosecutorial Development Assistance and Training (OPDAT) Program Support Activity, to be based in Washington DC.
As component organizations of the Criminal Division of DOJ, ICITAP and OPDAT are engaged in the work of international criminal justice development and reform to develop and administer technical and developmental assistance designed to enhance the capabilities of foreign justice sector institutions.

In so doing, ICITAP and OPDAT utilize a combination of federal employees and contractor support (including the support of foreign local labor and third country nationals).
The proposed program will provide worldwide support services to ICITAP and OPDAT through the deployment of administrative, logistical, professional, and technical labor. The program will also provide supplies, equipment, facilities, and materials necessary to perform the required functions consistent with applicable policies, regulations, procedures, business practices, and protocols that define ICITAP and OPDAT’s operational environment.


  • A university degree (bachelors or higher) in law enforcement related discipline is desirable, but a combination of documented law enforcement work experience and related education or specialized training can be substituted
  • Progressive law enforcement experience, preferably with a demonstrated background in training entry level law enforcement personnel at the local, state or federal level on various topics
  • Thorough understanding of community policing, organized crime, criminal investigations, internal affairs, and field training programs
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills

  • Demonstrated progressive supervision, management and leadership experience in the delivery of civilian law enforcement services with familiarity in all aspects of police administration and operations preferred
