    CBP has gone public with the desire to increase staffing levels to 25.252 CBPOs. That's an increase of 3,477 additional officers. Figuring in attrition and it looks as if they'll need roughly 4-5K new hires in the near future. Although, I haven't seen a timeframe for this hiring. It could well be that the 'plan' is to gradually increase hiring during the next few years to reach the desired staffing levels.

          • I received my NOR today and I got a 92.
            Would you guys suggest printing the forms out, filling them out, then scanning them into my computer and uploading them?

            Also, I am using education to qualify for GS5 since I do not have three years of LE experience. Do I still need to submit a resume?

            Thanks and good luck to all!

            • Minimum quals for a GS-05 include three years of generalized work experience, not three years of LE experience.

                That's what I did. Printed them out. Filled them out. Scanned them and uploaded them to USA Test Manager.

                And even if you qualify for GS5, I would still recommend to upload your resume. Doesn't hurt.

                • Thanks guys. I figured out exactly what I needed to upload. Will they ever need my official transcripts? (I uploaded my unofficial)

                    For now is ok they will, eventually, ask for the official one that should be send directly from the college/university to them.

                    • Hello everyone, I just found out that I am EOD on December 16th to San Ysidro. My question, is does anyone know if there is an available housing for that 1 month period?

                      Thanks

                        Hey Aviator,

                        I EOD same date but have not chosen my location yet. I am coming from Florida so this is a huge change for me and my family.

                        What made you choose San Ysidro?

                        • Got "the call" today. I have to call back tomorrow to select my location. Trying to decide between san ysidro/otay mesa in Cali., or Texas. Texas seems a little rural for me coming from the city in Florida.

                          Any suggestions would be great.

                          • LiveToCompete, I choose San Ysidro because it is a busy place. There is always something happening. Also, San Diego is close by.
