   Naturalization means to admit to citizenship, in this case United States citizenship. In order to be naturalized, an
   applicant must first be qualified to apply for citizenship. Laws have been enacted which regulate the procedure
                                                      for obtaining it.

                                                                By Kenneth Echie

   With all the news coverage and controversies lately on illegal immigration, you may have heard a lot
about immigration enforcement. A deportation officer is an immigration official who is charged with the
task of finding illegal immigrants who are unauthorized to be in the United States and sending them
back to their home countries.

 These officers work under the auspices of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services
(USCIS), formerly known as the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). The role of the USCIS
is to regulate issues involving immigration and nationality. In some cases, it is necessary to detain and
deport individuals who are found to be in the United States without authorization.

What Are the Job Duties of a Deportation Officer?

 Deportation officers oversee deportation proceedings from start to finish. Some of the things they do

1. Detain illegal aliens
2. Investigate the circumstances of the person’s stay in the U.S.
3. Make recommendations based on those findings
4. Work closely with foreign governments to arrange necessary travel documents
5. Respond to congressional inquiries

What Qualifications Must a Deportation Officer Have?

 Like other law enforcement professionals, deportation officers must meet specific legal requirements
to qualify for hire. An officer must be United States citizens who have lived in the U.S. for at least three
of the five years preceding hire, or have worked overseas in a United States Federal or Military
government agency. In the alternative, you may also have been a dependant of an overseas
employee of a U.S. Federal or Military agency.

 You’ll need either a bachelor’s degree in any field (especially criminal justice or law enforcement), or
three years of progressively responsible work experience, or some combination of both. As with other
law enforcement positions, a physical exam, written test, and background check are required.

Pros and Cons of Becoming a Deportation Officer

 Working as an officer that deports people can be stressful for a variety of reasons. Like other law
enforcement professionals, you may encounter dangerous and even life-threatening situations in the
course of your duties. You may also be charged with the difficult task of detaining only some family
members, while other distraught family members look on or hinder your ability to do your job.

 While you may have the reward of knowing you are helping to enforce the laws of your country, this
can sometimes present a challenge in the more difficult cases. There are variety of reasons why
immigrants may be deported, ranging from a simple lapse in completing the proper paperwork, to the
commission of serious crimes. Regardless of the reasons, a deportation officer is charged with the
task of enforcing the law and removing the unauthorized immigrant.

Why Should You Choose a Career as a Deportation Officer?

 As difficult a job as it may be, becoming a deportation officer will allow you to work in a challenging
and exhilarating field with the reward of knowing you are helping to secure our borders. This can be a
particularly rewarding job if you have an interest in international issues.

If this sounds like a description of your skills and interests, consider a career as a deportation officer.

              Police, Corrections, Or Security: The Best Law-Enforcement Career For You
                                                                By Amy Nutt

 When looking into positions in law enforcement and security, you will probably find that there are more
options out there than you believed. Some of these career options require less training or more, of
course, or have higher or lower pay rates, and they all have their own set of advantages and
disadvantages. Here, you'll find an overview of three law enforcement-related careers: Police Officer,
Corrections Officer, and Security Officer.

Police Officer

Of the three law enforcement careers discussed here, working as a Police Officer is generally the most
demanding, as it requires extensive training and an ability to deal with tense and life-threatening
situations. Unlike in the security and corrections sectors, Police Officers work throughout the city,
adding an extra level of risk to the position.

Because of this, the recruitment process for new Police Officers in most U.S. cities is long and
extensive. In L.A., for example, the recruitment process involves 12 steps, including background
reviews, polygraphs, and psychological, mental, and physical evaluations. After the applications and
recruitment process has completed, candidates are generally offered a recruitment training program,
which takes place before true recruit training.

Though Police Officers go through the most rigorous examinations and training, there are some
definite benefits to this career in comparison with other law enforcement careers. For one, the pay is
generally higher. New Police Officers (with 1-4 years on the police force) make a median salary of
$38,000. With five years on the force, the median salary rises to $44,000.

Corrections Officer

Nearly as demanding as working as a Police Officer is a career as Corrections officer. Like Police
Officers, Corrections Officers must go through a series of tests and examinations to determine if they
are fit for that particular career. While not as rigorous as the Police Officer application process, the
Corrections Officer application process includes many of the same elements, such as a written
examination, a health screening, and a background check.

Though salaries in the Corrections field can go up past $70,000 annually (Supervisors/Managers),
most Corrections Officers earn less than a police officer. The median salary for a Corrections Officer or
Jailer is $33,600 (2004).

Security Officer

Unlike Police or Corrections Officers, Security Officers or Guards generally work in the private sector
for institutions such as banks and casinos, or in the public sector in public buildings, laboratories, etc.
The responsibilities of a Security Officer vary greatly, as does the pay rate. A Security Officer's
responsibilities range from patrol and inspection of people and property, to theft and fire prevention, to
interviewing witnesses.

                                               Presented by Daniel Toriola

Unfortunately, as work as a Security Officer requires less training than other law enforcement careers,
the pay is also lower. Security Officers earn a median salary of $22,900 annually. However, for those
working in the private sector as Personal Security Specialists, that amount can go up to $36,000.
