Disney Law Enforcement question.
I don't see a Disney Career link so I guess this might be the right spot to post this. I always look at the Disney Career sight just to see what they are posting as far as job listings. I saw that they had listings for hourly security jobs but I see nothing on there about the supposed "Disney Secret Service" (I know there's another name for it ) or anything above the hourly security positions. I understand that this is probably not something that is advertised but I know they have undercover agents around the park. I was just wondering if anyone knew how to find any information about those type of positions. I've been in Law Enforcement for over 12 years in a very specialized field (High Tech Crime) and was inerested in finding out any information. Thanks for any help....
EDIT: Forgot to add that I am specifically looking for something in WDW but not opposed to Disneyland.

Not sure what disney call's it.
I didn't see any positions posted, however in most companies, the department your looking for is Lost Prevention or Internal Security. I have also heard it called Revenue Control. All of the names are used by other theme park companies. I hope that helps your search.
Thanks...I think the problem is that Disney doesn't actively advertise these positions. That leaves me wondering how people get these types of jobs. I know there must be a High Tech Crime Unit within Disney. It might be called White Collar Crime or even some sort of Fraud Prevention Unit. I'm determined if nothing else to find out what it's called.

It may just be a matter of getting your resume in the hands of the right person. I found an article with all the names of the people in charge of Disney security. i might have to try and get a phone number and try to contact them.
I think your best bet would be to contact the Casting center at WDW and find out how to apply for a security position. From there, you can provide your resume, credentials and see what may be available. I know Disney often promotes from within, so while you may not be able to start at the level of security you might hope for, you have a better chance of getting your "foot in the door" and moving up the ladder that way. Good luck!

a job like you are looking for would have to be a promotion from within.

ask yourself a couple of questions...
how passionate am i for a position with disney?
can i afford to go entry level for the time it might take to get where i want?
is it possible for me to survive in the meantime?
if you show aptitude, disney promotes quickly. i can tell you that disney carrers online doesnt have half the listings i can access through the "hub"...
hope it helps, best of luck
the hub is an internal web place where we can do everything from check our paystubs, check on discounts, give away/take shifts, get inside disney news...

I don't know if someone already mentioned this but security positions, loss prevention, EMT's and Police Officers are all hired through the Reedy Creek District. Just an FYI. Forgive me if I repeat someone else's post.

Security is generally hired through the Casting Center, and while there is usually a waiting list, the right experience and Attitude can go a long way in expediting the process. As for more specialized positions, CaptainHook is mostly correct. Law enforcement is handled through the respective County, EMT and dispatch is handled through Reedy Creek (Disney's district, for lack of a better term), and any more specialized security, if they exist, would generally be promoted from within. Even so, looking for these specialist positions would be best served through Casting.

Re: Disney Law Enforcement question.
I haven't really been looking but in the current economy the job openings at WDW are very limited. I'm not sure if any of you were considering Disney Security as a career possibility but this site Disney has the process and description of several different job areas for the parks. I just found this recently and never knew the site existed so I'm not sure if it's fairly new or not. Anyway it's a start for people looking to get into WDW on the ground floor.
