  • I was wondering if anyone has some general information about Brownsville, Texas. I will EOD there March, 22 and was wondering about good places to stay for pre-academy, as well as after FLETC. Any other information about the area or CBPO life there would be appreciated as well (scheduling, etc.). Thanks!

      Okay, thanks. How is the traffic going to SY?

      • Has anyone had an EOD after March 22nd or a Academy date after May 9th? Curious if this is the last academy class or second to last perhaps?

          Well, there were academies starting every two weeks all through summer, tentatively scheduled. When I talked to them, they said they were filling only up to early may at the time. Most likely the remainder of the classes are going to be canceled per the plans for the sequester. If some deal is reached as part of the 2013 remaining budget, then they will probably start filing those classes.

            Ahh, I hope thats not the case if this isnt resolved as the weeks progress I guess FLETC will become more empty as last classes graduate.

              It will likely be relatively empty of CBPO's, but remember, FLETC is the training facility for a whole lot of Fed. Agencies as well as many State and Local agencies too. There will be people there, but fewer and fewer CBPO's as you all graduate.

              I did read some news today(and saw it on tv) about Pres. Obama beginning to offer consolations about reforming Entitlement programs(medicare/medicaid) which is a very large step towards finding a deal that can appease many republicans as well as Dems. Dems will likely get higher rev. through tax loophole closure, and repubs will hopefully get lower spending levels.

                I assumed that because of the sequester and so many things being cut that the other government training going on at FLETC would be cancelled or minimized too.

                • Hi, still waiting for my BI but Any way from

                  http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/newsroom/...medium=twitter

                  How will sequestration affect CBP Field Operations?

                  Under the automatic sequestration cuts, we anticipate reducing agency-wide expenditures significantly during the remainder of Fiscal Year 2013. CBP Field Operations, the office responsible for securing the U.S. border at ports of entry, will experience budget cuts equating to the loss of several thousand CBP officers at these ports of entry, in addition to significant cuts to operating budgets and programs. Stakeholders in the travel and trade industries will see service impacts and CBP employees will be furloughed.

                  I am thinking about joining CBP, it will take a lot be closed to my current salary. I think I can not handle that one 3 years old son and one on the way

                      Well, the only evidence that a hiring freeze would go into effect was from the memo that the unions got, and that was before any negotiations took place. As I recall the letter was informing the unions of planned actions and was to be discussed at a meeting of DHS officials to further decide. The Hiring freeze also did not mention which portions would be frozen. The actual LEO positions may be exempted from any freeze.

                      Time will tell if they continue to hire.

                            First congrats on your second child. Just remember the pay may be rough the first few years, but in the long run it will pay off. You're so close shark just like me hold on a bit longer. No news yet on your poly? Remember no news is good news. Have you tried calling IA?

                            • I received my TSL on 2/25/13 for Florida. I tested last April. Im shock that they are going under 90. Not only that, alot of my coworkers has gotten on too. I know that they built an extra piece on to MIA and it was said that they need more CBPO in the near future. I hope this process goes by quick like in 2007-2008. Anyone else received an offer for FL?
