I don't know what the clearance requirements were back before CBP, so it is possible some people do not have TS clearances, not sure. A requirement now to become a CBP officer is a Top Secret Clearance through a Single Scope Background Investigation (SSBI), which covers the last 10 years of your life, and is a more in depth investigation on former spouses, character references, employment history, reviews of rental history, education, academic records, etc, etc.

        They told me I will received a letter on the mail.

        I was not epecting a structured interview, the letter says that the VBT was consider the structured interview, damn it caught me by surprise. I hate those kind of interviews, im not really good at interviews that requieres certaing keywords and stuff like that. I think I blew my chances inthe interview. Thats how low I feel about my interview. Didnt prepare for that.
        I was also thrown off by surprise. I too was just expecting the VBT and when I was out they made me fill out a survey. When I was about to turn it in they told me I was next for the Structured Interview and I was thrown off haha. I ended up passing both. I took my interview on a monday and received my results that same saturday in the mail.

          As of now, Polygraphs are at random it seems. According to the 2010 Anti-Border Corruption act at some point in 2012, CBP will be required to administer a poly to 100% of law enforcement applicants. I'm not sure when in 2012 this goes into effect, maybe someone else could clarify.

            I am under the same impression, right now random, in the future, mandatory.

              It says in the TSL and in the FAQs section of the CBP Officer applicant site on cbp.gov that applicants who applied after October 2010 will be required to take both the VBT and SI...just saying...

                        My letter said that,"The VBT will serve as the SI for this position." I was surprised also, but I was excited to do the SI. To me that meant that the VBT satisfies the requirement for the SI. The letter needs to be re-worded.
