    • Just want to let everyone know what I was offered for BPA and CBP. For BPA I was only offered Texas. But since I was not looking to relocate out of Arizona, they didn't tell me the cities in Texas.
      For CBP, I was offered Douglas, Nogales, Lukeville, and San Luis.

      I chose Douglas.

      Does anyone know what the hours are during pre-academy? Is it 8am-4pm, Mon-Fri? Just curious.

      Good luck to everyone on the whole employment process. Mine was very long, my BI took a long time to clear.

            After 20 yrs or 57 you retire... I believe you get 1.7% for each year in service and that is taken out of your highest earning 3 years. They average out those 3... Lets say you average out at 100k (nice round number for this) and you put in 20 years.... That's 34% or 34k you get a year plus however much you put on your TSP.

              Really that's weird, one option, that's pretty close to San Diego, it doesn't look that bad when I was researching the city online

                  • Thanks Yoda! Helpful, as always. I really appreciate you helping us desiring to become CBPOs. You're knowledge makes it easier for us to go through this whole process.

                      It is 1.7% for each year for the 20 years. If you put in more than 20 it reverts back to the 1% for each year over the 20 year mark.

                        Except that you would not get full retirement if you retired at 42 with 20 years service. The rule is 20 years at age 50 or 25 years at any age. In the 25 years at any age it would be 1.7% for the first 20 and 1% for the last 5.

                        • FERS also incorporates social security for the time being...

                          • I'll add that the retirement rules differ depending on certain situations.

                            As examples...
                            Anyone hired prior to 1984(give or take) is a CSRS hire and their retirement is computed differently.
                            Also, anyone who was a CBPO prior to 2008(give or take), is grandfathered in as far as mandatory retirement goes and does not face being aged out at any age.

                              Realize it's a 'one-size-fits-all' standard.

                              An 11 minute mile is actually not all that absurd for middle-aged men and a large number of women. Back when the first standards were implemented, there was no age cutoffs for new hires. 50, 60 and even 70 year-olds applied, passed the academy and worked as CBPOs or in legacy positions.

                              • It's been over two months since I was told I "failed" my polygraph and I still haven't heard anything. Is this pretty typical? I'm sure this has been answered before, but it's too difficult to navigate back on my phone.
