    Another Poly failure. Protested it. Never heard a peep back. It's ridiculous. They said I lied about drug involvement. I've never used an illegal drug of any kind in my entire life. Local LEO for over a decade. Detective, task force officer, a resume of accomplishments.... doesn't mean squat to TSA. More mad that I wasted money and vacation days to fly to NJ.
    Same here. Never touched anything, but its hard for them to believe. I appealed a few weeks ago, with a lot of information and prior SF86s and dd214 showing good records and consistent through out, as well as a completed DEA Poly, USSS, and FBI...DEA! But I guess FAMs thinks they know more about drug involvement than the DEA.

    Got my denial to the appeal yesterday. I get it though...there are thousands of applicants and so few jobs. Sucks though considering I did great in all the other portions of the hiring and was 100% confident in going to the poly. The other guys with me were ****ing wrecks...pit stains, paranoia all of it..

    Funny thing though. If I would have lied and said "oh yea, Ive smoked weed a few times" I would have passed...no problem. Sure of it. Oh well good luck to the rest of you!

                      ep. 100%. WFO is good because FAMS HQ, TSA HQ, and DHS HQ aren't far, they have a limited number of assignments and promotions, WFO is a good office just costs a lot to live in D.C. The WFO per diem, OT, night diff, etc will keep money in you're pocket and seeing the world

                      Nope. But assume you will be traveling coast to coast and overseas.

                  • Just received notification I passed my poly. Just waiting for paperwork from the VA now to finish the med section. Hopefully that doesn't take too long and I can get my final offer soon.
