        • I finished my first week of Pre-Academy and it is a mixture of fun and boring. You will be doing lots of computer work, however you trainers know how monotonous that is, so for us, they have been breaking it up and allowing us to go to the secondary inspection and watch how the officers do the different inspections and clearances. We have been able to search some cars so far.

          Evidently there is a lot of immigration law involved as well, so we will be studying the immigration regulations.

              • is it real police work, well that depends on your definition.[/QUOTE]

                CBP work is mainly customer service/ inspections/regulatory compliance

                Real agencies have a law enforcement mindset behind their policies, something CBP doesn't have. CBP seems to think customer service and LE are the same.

                  CBP is a schizophrenic agency. With its broad mission sometimes it seems that it doesn't know what kind of agency it. Wants to be. You have inspectional duties, intelligence, and Law enforcement components. There's something for everyone if you push for it. I think things have improved in the past couple years, but Hangman is correct about senior management with this agency. It is not the most supportive of its officers or of its LE mission unless its good publicity for the agency. That being said it is still not a bad job. While I'm not kicking down doors or riding around all day in a crown vic I've gotten to do some pretty cool things and work with a lot of agencies local, state and federal. I've gotten to travel to quite a few interesting places. But you do have to pay your dues. You will work your fair share of Primary before you get to get into some of the fun stuff. As with any job it will be what you make of it. And if you get the job and its not for you move on.
                  Don't tase me bro!!

                              I'm getting anxious as well!! I tested the day after you did (9-25-13), so we have been waiting the same amount of time!
