    How have you been moving along? I haven't had any movement since submitting my Eqip back in October. No Credit pull or anything. Just says "In security Office".

      Yeah, I definitely understand your point and I know deep down that's why I was offered a 5. With that being said, I feel like the last 6 years of "experience" I have had are a waste. A kid out of college could qualify at the same grade as me. Regardless of actual "work load" as a cop, I think the responsibility of carrying a gun every day and wearing the uniform should mean more than it does. Regardless if I use my training or not, I still endured a normal 6.5 month police academy and learned all the skills a "normal" police officer does.
      I completely understand. I have changed careers several times, and often hired, assigned tasks, and promoted based on previous experience(s)/careers. Yet they only want to pay based on other criteria.

      However, try not to take it too hard, 1) it should make FLETC easier for you. Also, in my experience if you maintain a positive attitude and offer to help when you experience would be valuable, you will get put on projects that will help you in the long run. I don't know enough about this entity to say for sure, but it will probably help you after GS-12.

      Either way, good luck.

        Not been moving at all, submitted my eqip at beginning of Oct as well but mine doesn't even say "in security office" yet. Seems like most have their cass updated within a week of submitting eqip.

          Based on what I'm seeing on this forum and others, it doesn't seem too desirable. Lol...... I'd imagine it would be due to commuting and cost of living.

            On the up-side, a large port, requiring lots of people, with high turnover, and relatively low desirability, can make for more oppurtunity for those there. Just a thought.

                      What geo did you select? That may be why you haven't heard anything. I'm in the same boat as you - received test results and have yet to hear anything else.

                        I guess we are all in the same boat.

                            It's not big. It's small-medium.

                            One thing Charlotte has for it over most ports it's size is that Charlotte is an area port who at least nominally controls several additional NC ports. Being an area port it has access to additional admin and support people, tools, technology, and infrastructure that many ports it's size or larger lack.

                            • I took my first poly Oct 30th and I was told it didn't look good and it would have to be reviewed so after waiting for an entire month I finally got the phone call to take my 2nd poly scheduled for Dec 22nd. Wish me luck...
