                As I said there's really no timeline on when they call you for the meeting... The investigators get paid by the case, so the faster they do it the faster they get paid for their work. When he turns it in to IA ,it'll have to go through quite a few hands before the actual adjudicator works on it, so your file may sit in a pile for a while... That's why I say don't expect it to go quick. My experience with IA may be the exception to the rule, but my 1st BI was there for 3 years and was never fully adjudicated. It expired and a new one was ordered, took them 3 months to adjudicate it, but I did have my Poly already done in Aug 2010. It was done this quick because I was able to get someone in IA to actually listen to me and lend me a hand on speeding up my process... it was not the case in the previous years.

                  As Yoda said:" the faster they do it the faster they get paid for their work"
                  In my case when I came onboard, only took 2 months the BI by the 3rd month got the call to report at my duty station.

                  • Are you allowed to change the lead foot during the step test? Because after 2.5 minutes I had to stop, My right leg was killing me.

                    And thoughtless, How long were the SWB applicants in the process before they got the call?

                      Yes.
                      After 5 min, both legs will feel like 4 times their normal size

                          Yes, you will have to do it again. That happens the last full week if not the same week of graduation.

                            OC was not always carried by officers. That being the case it was not taught in the basic academy. That changed several years ago as a result you have some officers that were working before OC was introduced and are not yet qualified. The policy is that if you are carrying a firearm you are required to carry at least one intermediate force weapon. This can be OC, or a collapsible baton it is the officer’s choice. However, even though there is a choice of what to carry all new officers must certify with both in the academy. It is also of note that the policy for what ever reason does not include the taser as a acceptable intermediate force weapon to satisfy the requirement of carrying a intermediate force weapon while carrying a firearm.

                            • Hello all. Quick questions about some locations.

                              203- Arizona
                              265-Texas-Laredo
                              266-Texas-All Other Southwest Border Locations
                              267-Texas- West/New Mexico
                              270-California-Calexico/Andrade
                              271-California-Southwest Border

                              Out of these locations where one could work which are closest to major cities and which ones. Especially # 266 Texas- All other Southwest Border locations. That kind of confuses me. A friend of mines who does BP said the Arizona location would probably be about an 1.5hr drive back and fourth to PHX if that is where one would chose to live.

                              • Southwest Border is in San Diego County. That is the most populated of the sectors. And San Diego County has everything. Beaches, Mountains, Airports etc.. you name it. Great weather.
