    What is the salary?
    What are of-duty weapons allowed?
    Duty weapon?

    Thanks,
    Obviously, you have applied, took the test, and still ask those questions? The weapon question I can understand (I think??), but come on, salary? Didn't you do some research about the agency BEFORE you applied?

        Are you familiar with the GS Scale? If so, entry level CBPOS are GS5/7. Journeymen level is GS11.

          I know there is some debate here about HR218, but it seems a CCW would cya from the Fed.
          Ramifications? Well, that would likely depend on just what you've done while carrying on your state issued permit. As a general rule, CBP more or less endorses carrying on a state issued permit over carrying on your creds.

          On many levels, CBP would love for everyone to carry "civilian"...it gives them that many more options to walk away from people should things go sour. On the other hand, don't expect carrying on a state issued permit to insulate anyone from Uncle Sugar sticking his nose into any off-duty conduct(especially that involving firearms) he so chooses to jump into. If Uncle Sugar wants to see a nexus between an off-duty incident and the job, he probably will.

            I had this same discussion with my current dept. (County Govt.) about a year ago. I wanted to carry a smaller caliber than they allowed and I have my Texas CHL. They wanted to argue that I could not carry the weapon because they did not approve it. I never got a straight answer and ended up deciding it was not a battle I wanted to continue fighting.

            I think it is a very gray issue at this time.

              Anyone have any idea what the phone number is there (is so, please PM me).


              Thanks in advance!

                Base salary GS-05, most of the USA...$29,726

                Base salary GS-07, most of the USA...$36,822

                Location pay, night/evening/Sun. differentials, holiday pay and possible OT will push that up for the average CBPO considerably. Probably upwards of an extra 15-30+K for a CBPO in the LA/Long Beach area.

                  Have you tried doing a follow-up? If so what was their answer?

                  jrq16

                  The answer was 2 to 4 weeks, maybe 6. It's been closer to 8 or ten weeks and no end in sight. But at least I'm still in cass.

                  • My 2 cents on CCW....

                    Actual event:

                    1. CBPO in uniform with cover jacket meets with a purse snatcher.
                    2. Purse snatcher sucessfully took purse.
                    3. Officer draws weapon and shoots.
                    4. Purse snatcher flees scene.
                    5. Evidence shows Purse snatcher was hit (blood on ground).

                    Couple days later:
                    1. Homicide Investigation.
                    2. CBP Tells CBPO she will not be represented by them.
                    3. CBPO hires own attorney.

                    Amazing.

                    That is all. Enjoy the 3 day weekend.

                      I just got off the phone with the MHC. They told me there will definitely be an announcement next month (November).

                        That might not be a good selling point. I've seen some of their BI.
                        But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

                        For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.

                          If you're shooting a guy over a purse, you've got more to deal with than just the fact that CBP isn't repping you.
                          "Officer, you are kinda hot."

                          "And you are kinda intoxicated."

                            It is actually a very simple issue at this time. If you are carrying on your credentials, you are carrying on HR 218 and must comply with all of your agency's policies. If you are carrying on your concealed carry permit you are free to carry whatever you want, as long as you comply with the state law everyone else must comply with (no carrying on school property etc.). You are taking all of the liability not the agency.

                              That would seem to kill any talk of a hiring freeze.

                                Im not a lawyer and i feel for the woman's situation, but i dont think you can blast somebody in the back for taking your purse or wallet. Poor judgement and a little over zealous.
