    Good morning guys. I spoke yesterday with one of my friends currently at FLETC who stated the following: " there is 2 more classes for this year. Next year they only going to have 25 classes with 25 students per class and instead of 16 weeks the academy is going to be 22 weeks. Reason for this is that they are adding a driving course and due to a lot of people failing because of back to back exams".
    I have also read on another forum that shotgun, M4 and taser training are being added. 22 weeks, plus spanish, the wife is gonna love me being gone for that long!

    25 classes x 25 trainees per class = 625 of us hired.

    This article says that 5,000 additional officers are needed:

    • Anyone Get This Before????

      Mr. ,

      Management would like to know when you will be returning from tour of
      duty, because they would like schedule another interview with you.

      Ms.


      Has anyone ever got a call or email like this. It's way better then being found unsuitable, just want to know. It hasnt been 2yrs since the first one.

      Thanks...

        Thanks for the congrats from everyone!! I feel loved!!

        I thought occording to the previous posts that the 22 week course started October 1st....???? I paid close attention to those posts considering I'm married, a mother of 2 and will have to leave them for that long period of time. I guess it doesnt matter much considering I wont get an EOD before January. It will be changed already regardless Oct 09 or Jan 10.

          They probably want to make sure you havent gone coo-coo being over there!!! Just a check-up. Some guys have a hard time adjusting when they get back. That's just my opinion. I could be wrong. If I am right, you will be fine. Piece of cake!!! BTW... when do you get back??

            I hope your right, I dont know why else, i talked to the adjudicator and she couldnt tell me any more she said they were real vage and only the stuff I put here. Hope it works out for me with them..


            I still dont know when ill be home... The Federal Reserve wants me for Police Officer and to phone interview me but need to know when ill be home because they want to fill the spots.

                • This truly sucks. I think my boss might be getting fired. And if he gets fired, I don't have a job. This will be the second company I've worked for in the past 2 years that has become insolvent.

                  I don't expect CBP to call me within the next 2 years, so I'm back to square 1

                    • I guess no calls have gone out lately
                      I sure hope they'll start calling in Jan as I'm starting to lose hope on this job. It's sad.

                        Sorry to hear that. It's always darkest before the dawn... Hang in there.

                          • I called TSU yesterday to ask about hiring. It had been months since I last called. The lady said "we continue to fill classes for the Southern border but nothing has become available in your geo location.” (SF/OAK) I asked if she could tell if anything was coming up in the near future and she said “we have not received any requests for your geo location for a long time and I really don’t see anything coming, I’m sorry” I then asked about the rest of the country and she repeated herself, “just the southern border”
                            She was very nice, kept on saying how sorry she was.
                            2009 is toast, 2010 looks like it’s going to be Southern border, and I am on the verge of giving up on CBP.

                            • I need to chime in here. Why are y'all set on CBP when it's taking so long to get hired or not get a call ever? There are plently of other LE Agencies out there. I just hate to see andhear people wasting 2 years for a call.

                              Some advice when applying for LE jobs. Apply everywhere!

                              • The only advice for the majority of us that is sound is to watch the TSU list that Anthony created. As soon as the guy with the date right ahead of you gets called, start packing your bags. Until then, we are going nowhere.
