        i got my FLETC date for Sept 10th, so it looks like they are filling for Sept but for certain ports maybe.

        Once I get out there, maybe I can give some insight as to when other classes will be starting after mine.

        Also I will do my best to keep everyone up to date as what we are doing as far as PT and stuff.

        Cant wait to get out there.

          I don't know of any way to find out future academy dates.

          As far as the rest...Starting on or about Oct. 1st there will be a least one(and maybe two) academy classes starting each week until May. That you can pretty much bring to the bank. CBP is going to be looking to hire roughly 2000 CBPO's in the next year...give or take a few hundred.

            I've been waiting so long, I can't remember if I'm waiting for East TEXAS or SE TEXAS, ultimately I'm hoping to stay in Houston, but I'm just ready to go to any other city around here. I've been in TSU since 12-01-08. Where are you hoping to get stationed?

            • Congradulations!!! By any chance do you know any affordable motel to stay at in Laredo Texas? I was visited by investigator on July the 7th 2009 and awaiting to get cleared on my B.I. By the way what is an EOD and TSU? I'm new to this and wanting to know what does it mean. Well I wish you the best while at the academy and who knows if I get everything cleared and also start off academy in Sept.

                  Sorry cant help you out with the info about laredo, that is about a 4 hr drive from where I will be at. They gave me El Paso, TX, which is about 4hrs west of laredo. EOD = Entry on Duty (If I remember correctly) and TSU = Training Selection Unit.

                  Hope you do get cleared soon, and hope to maybe meet people from here at the academy. Dont have my paper with me but I think my class # is 970. Will check tonight and update tomorrow

                  • Ok guys I have an issue and could use some advice if anyone has any. Without getting into all the details, unless you need to know them and then just ask, I was arrested for disturbing the peace on June 14, 2009. The entire thing was total garbage and I have a meeting with the DA FINALLY, and then my BI packet shows up and has to be postmarked by the 17th of August and my meeting with the DA to hopefully get it dismissed isn't until Sept. So I have a couple options, I can plea guilty to get it done and over with so nothing is in limbo and pay my fine, or I can keep my meeting with the DA and put on my BI that I haven't been convicted yet. Any advice from anyone or do I even have a chance still of making it through? I talked to someone very high up in BP and they told me they didn't think it would be a big deal as long as I disclosed it but I'm open to suggestions from anyone. Also I've never had anything on my record or been in any trouble before in my life until this.

                      i would think that you are ok to go through with your BI. Just let the investigator know what is going on. It may hold up your process a little bit until you can provide proof that the charges were dropped or that you paid your fine. As long as you dont get charged with a Felony you should be ok.

                      • I wouldn't plea yet; you plea...you have a conviction.

                        Meet with the DA and see what he's offering.

                        Either way, you'll have to disclose the arrest to your BI...and either way you're likely to be looking forward to drawing a NOPA. Expect a slow and painful process from here on out.

                            I would tend to agree with Merlin here. Look-up the statute that you allegedly violated and if you disagree with the charges either get an attorney, fight it "pro-se" or see if you can obtain a plea bargain. Worst case scenario you end up with what they originally charged you with. Best case scenario the charges could be dropped, you could plead to a lesser-included-offense (downgraded but similar offense) or your case could be nolle prossed. Remember, the burden is on the prosecutor to show that you meet the requirements for each element of the offense. And most people make their job easy by just pleading to the offense charged.

                            Don't get me wrong, I'm not a criminal attorney so take it for what its worth.

                            Good luck.

                                I looked into pleading it down but it can't go any lower it's a misdemeanor as is and the lowest of its kind. The misdemeanor DA said I'm only going to have to pay a fine but I'm really P.O.ed about it all so I'm meeting with the head DA like the state senator told me to. We shall see NOPA here I come...
