    • No prob. Cross.

      A good showing is one thing, but don't let those cameras dictate your actions(especially as it relates to safety); do what you need to do to make sure you and your coworkers all go home in one piece each and every night.

      • I tested in April of 2009 and haven't received anything other than a passing score and a 6 month extension in May that expires in December. I'm thinking if it is better for me to reapply in the upcoming window on the 16th since it looks like I'm not gonna be receiving anything.

        I had originally applied for the LA/Long Beach sector and changed it in April to the Southwest Border sector of San Diego.
        Does anyone have any suggestions.

          Most of the "door kicking in" that you're going to do as a CBPO will be that of the door to the bathroom stall after you ate some food that disagrees with you and you need time to get your gun belt off. Just saying'

            Hahaha....Well If I do finally get hired, I will most likely be working in Philly. I'm not to sure if they have any high-speed stuff going on over here. When I interviewed over a year ago, the officer told me that they have a Task force there that does some filed work.

            • Hello,
              So Im new in this and i have several questions, I recently applied for the BPA Position last week and Im scheduled to take my exam in December. I wanted to know how long is the process I've read some of the threads and I hear that for those who are just recently applying the wait is really long, also when i applies i chose the Texas area I live in Miami is there a possibility that i may be able to tranfer back to Miami once my probation period is over ???? Or am i stuck in texas??!!

              I also wanted to know and this is for any current BPA, do you have to reside in those remote desert looking areas am just a bit concerned cause like i said previously am from Miami and getting adapt to those situation may be hard. For those of us who have kids like myself am a female with two kids what would you recomend is the enviorment there good for raising children ??? Again am sorry for all these questions am just a bit concerned because I dont want to put myself through all this hassle for nothing and then end up quitting due to the fact that i wouldn't be able to adapt, while someone else is missing out on the opportunity that am taking for granted.

                You might want to post this in the BP thread. BP is part of CBP but they are very different in policy and culture.
                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.

                    It depends...and it depends.

                    After several years, you'll probably have the option to move. You may not have the option of moving anywhere you wish to move, though. As far as difficulty, that more or less depends on how you move and how helpful management is.

                    Don't count on either happening easily. Past history is full of tales where CBPOs struggled and stressed with the efforts of relocating.

                    • Just a friendly update on my CASS status...

                      I went from having all "requirements met" back to the green check marks with the exception of a pending drug test.

                      Anyone on or around the same boat?

                        Looking at your time line, I see I'm almost exactly a year ahead of you. I've cycled all the requirements twice (Less the VBT). Forms too and a big fat NOPA. Still here though!

                          MEMORANDUM




                          TO: CBP Chapter Presidents and CBP Legislative Coordinators



                          RE: FY 2011 CBP Budget and Compensation Reform Project



                          SUMMARY: Today CBP briefed NTEU on the status of the FY 2011 CBP budget and a proposal on CBP compensation reform.



                          NTEU received two briefings today from CBP. The first briefing provided an update on the FY 2011 budget for CBP. CBP announced that it has committed to fully fund CBP’s Foreign Language Awards Program (FLAP) in FY 2011. As you will recall, CBP initially proposed to eliminate the $19.1 million funding for FLAP in FY 2011. FY 2011 DHS appropriations legislation, that includes funding for CBP, is in the process of being finalized by Congress. The DHS Appropriations Conference report will likely be included in either a long-term Continuing Resolution or a FY 2011 Omnibus Appropriations bill that needs to be approved before the 110th Congress adjourns at the end of this year.


                          NTEU was also briefed on a proposed CBP Compensation Reform Project. The proposal would eliminate all frontline CBP positions, including CBPOs and CBP Agriculture Specialists (CBPAS) from coverage by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA); change the definition of LEOs to include CBPOs; put all LEOs including CBPOs on the OPM LEO salary tables; change the CBPO and CBPAS annuity formula from 50% of COPRA pay to 25% of base pay; and exclude GS-14 and GS-15 managers from COPRA and replace their overtime system with Law Enforcement Availability Pay.


                          NTEU has many unanswered questions about this CBP Compensation Reform proposal and expressed our displeasure at learning of the proposal at such a late date. CBP told us that they expect to submit the legislative proposals to implement this proposal to Congress with their FY 2012 budget submission at the end of this year. In the meantime, NTEU will be following up with CBP to make sure all our concerns are addressed. We will keep you updated as we receive additional information on this proposal.


                          If you have any questions, please contact Jean Hutter in the Legislation Department at 202.572.5500, ext. 7021.

                          For you new guys, it might mean GL pay when you're hired.

                                Ok cool but is there a relocation process in place??
                                Is there a list and people request? How often do cbpo get relocated or is it almost impossible?
