Secret Service Recruitment and Retention Act of 2017

This bill amends the Overtime Pay for Protective Services Act of 2016 to extend through 2018 the exemption of U.S. Secret Service officers, employees, and agents who perform protective services from the limitation on premium pay otherwise applicable to federal employees.

The Secret Service must report to Congress by January 30, 2018, and January 30, 2019, on the amounts of premium pay above the limitation paid to Secret Service personnel in the previous year.

The Secret Service must conduct and provide to Congress updated threat assessments, including protection costs, on all of the individuals who are protected by the Secret Service. No such assessments will be conducted for the President, the Vice-President, their spouses or children, or former Presidents or Vice-Presidents.

The Secret Service must submit to Congress: (1) a report on its recruitment and retention efforts; (2) a notice whenever it, at the direction of the Department of Homeland Security or the President, extends the protection of an individual beyond the length of time such protection would otherwise be provided; and (3) a list of all of the questions asked in 2016 on any polygraph exam it issued to applicants for employment.
