  • Anyone know when they will be recruiting again?

      No. Nobody knows.

      If I had to guess I'd guess that a new announcement will open this fall/early winter. That's only a guess...based on what's usual over the last 5 years or so.

      With the economy, the new administration, our new retirement, et cetera happening in the last year or so, I'm not so sure that past events are necessarily all that useful anymore for predicting what the future holds. The best answer may well be "it'll happen when it happens".

        Not all agencies are clean cut and clean shaven. Not to mention... why should all occupations within the correctional world have grooming standards? Do most civilian personnel within L.E. agencies have grooming standards? Again, you're judging too much on what you see. Enough of BoP. This is a CBPO forum.

        • So, the other day I ran a mile in 9 minutes on the treadmill at the gym and ended up doing 1.6 miles in under 15 minutes. I know its still horrible, but I'm getting better at my time.

          I know a bunch of you said that the best place to run is outside, to get used to the Georgia heat. I've been alternating between running on the treadmill and running in the nice and muggy Florida heat at various times during the day to get used to both.

          I'm curious to see whether or not I'll be able to get to a 6-7 minute mile before I get into FLETC.

            • They'll post another announcement when applicants start running out. Don't expect too much until we start seeing a lot people post that they got the call.
              But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

              For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.

                Sandwichman, word of advice and my own personal experience is to not run on a treadmill stick to outside and maybe trails with hills that's what I have been doing and when its really bad weather out I have hit up the treadmill and it was nothing compared to outside I also started out with the treadmill and then went to run with a friend before and ran after running on a treadmill and it was a killer all the time I was thinking I was running a good time and I was like 3 or 4 min off my outdoor time! Point being don't gage your times strictly on treadmill times. Afterall you will be better off knowing what it's like outside. Goodluck!

                    For you guys(especially those awaiting a TO from a previous test), not having a new announcement is a good thing.

                    A new announcement brings in a bunch of high scoring, well qualified applicants who may well leap to the front of the applicant pack. As it currently is,there are likely no new TO's being drawn by people scoring 90-110 on the test. The current TO pool is probably closer to the low 80's. If you're sitting on a chance to have a 70's test score TO drawn, about the only way that's going to happen is to run the applicant pool dry. Those guys want no new announcements until 2013.

                          True. Still, having no new announcement means that the folks at MHC have that much less to do. That might mean more people are freed up to do what is out there is to do...like clearing people from TSU...whenever the floodgates open for that.

                          • I had a dream the other night I was at FLETC. I'm at something like 4 months+ in TSU for LAX/LB

                            • I got two voice messages while I was at work. I only ever get 1 in a 4-8 hour period, so i got excited. It was my mom and my stupid doctor. Gah.
