  • There are less than 2000 people waiting in TSU.

    Even assuming that there are 2000, that's not exactly that large of a number.
    A very significant portion of those waiting, maybe even a majority, are not serious contenders for the job. Lots of those still in TSU already have taken other jobs, have decided not to move for CBP, are really awaiting a call from an other agency, ...etc. If all 2000 were called today, by the time those refusing(for whatever reasons) were culled out of the process...the true working number of legitimate "yes, I'll take the position" pre-hires is likely somewhere closer to half of the TSU number.

        I always hear the rattling about CBPAS getting LEO status w/ the whole shebang (FLE retirement, arrest powers, duty carry etc). Is this one of those long standing rumors that has always been around or is it still in the works for those guys?


        You know it's funny cause I was going to use the example of 'you know those long standing rumors like BPA/CBPOs getting 12s but it never happening'

        ...and wouldn't you know.

        "And you are kinda intoxicated."

          Well, i figured some of these people may start to look outside of CBP, ICE etc....and just apply out.

            As far as I know it's simply a rumor.

            I could see CBPASs getting 20 year retirement...after all that's pretty much a no-brainer benefit for all involved. As far as arrest powers and firearms, I'm not see it anytime soon. Aggies have always seen themselves as other than 'LEOs', for the most part. I don't see that changing soon. Back during the 90's, one of Clinton/Gore brainstorms had the Aggies in USDA arming up and becoming full-fledged LEOs. It was shot down by the Aggies themselves, who came to the proposal stating that they were 'scientists', not law enforcement.

              Sometime last summer I talked to the lady at TSU and she said they had around 1600 in TSU. It's very possible that the list has hit 2000 by now.

                  You gotta be kidding me! After all this you wanna postpone your EOD. Do you have any idea how much its costs to do a wedding in NYC. Just elope and get it over with. I'll even come down to the courthouse and be a witness if you need me to.

                    well First of all CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....and I dont know if they would or would not allow you to defer. However in planning I would suggest you go with venues that offer flexibility. If they call you for EOD you will have about 1month before you are shipped off to FLETC. So this should be enough time to make changes as long as you can make changes without loosing all your money.

                    • And isnt it sad that we are planning/thinking about 2 year EODs.

                      • Outside of some major personal issue meltdowns, I doubt that anyone in TSU today will be spending the next two years awaiting a call.

                        • Just a heads up for those waiting. I was told buy a FLETC instructor that when they start classes again they're gonna be running a class a week. They will be starting in march or april.
                          Don't tase me bro!!

                            That is pretty huge news. A new class every week will mean loads of EODs. Is your source a reputable one?

                              77% of aggies want out of CBP quick fast and in a hurry, so I doubt there is much a push for this. USDA PPQ is furious about the GS 12 thing and there is still a movement to merge them back together.

                                He's an academy instructor. That's what he was told by the academy director.
