Yup, that's correct.

There's someone who had this job, who may be on this board, whom I knew when I lived in MA (AOC). Perhaps he will come out of the woodwork if anyone has questions.

It's at CIA Langley, Virginia

It's probably more like a nice campus job at the federal level. Doubt very much there is anything like police work involved.

That's basically it, site security of their facility. Everything from checking IDs at the gate, to being a first responder to medical emergencies.
