    Yes, we do. Policy only covers the agency weapon with an agency approved holster (of which there is a list of several).

          There was a discussion about this a few months back. Some people here on the forums seem to think that HR 218 gives CBPO's the right to carry any weapon. I'm not a CBPO so I don't know, but it may be worth looking into further.

            • I'm a CBPO and still have my Glock 17, 9mm. You can carry another weapon not issued by the agency. If you choose to carry CBP's HK or Glock, you must have a pair of handcuffs and your mags in an approved holster by CBP. That is why I choose to carry my personal weapon and not the agency one. Also remember, you don't have jurisdiction on the streets as a CBPO. At FLETC you are told to be a good witness if the attack is not against you.

                  • thanks for the info guys. When you go threw FLETA do get paid your GS pay scale with locality pay for your area? Or do you just get the very base GS grade?

                      When you are at FLETC, you get paid regular base GS pay scale rate. After graduation and appointment you will get your locality pay.

                      • 1. Pay at FLETC includes whatever locality pay you receive @ your home port.

                        2. If you are carrying on your CBPO creds, you had best be carrying your GOV. issued weapon and following CBP policy. Carrying anything else may well cost you your job.

                        If you are carrying on a state permit, then carry whatever they allow and by their rules.

                        • Does anyone know for sure? I am getting 2 different stories. Any links for "official" docs, that state what pay you receive in FLETA?

                            Like Marlin said, you'll get paid at ''FLETC'' not FLETA, whatever your locality pay is for your port. Let's said you got hired as a GS-5 at WA Dulles Airport. As a GS 5 you will earn more than someone (GS-5) going to NC because cost of living in WA is greater than NC. See how it works? Fore more info go to the OPM web site and it will list the locality pays for all states and ports.

                            FLETC = Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, not Academy.

                            • I am pretty excited....everything is complete in CASS today, except for the BI, which is "in the security office". Hopefully it won't be too long.

                              • so i see that some people received TOs that tested in March 08. I did not receive one... does that mean I am out of luck or do they stagger the TOs?
