      Did you change your geo pref or contact them about qualifying for a higher pay grade? That could be a reason why they sent it to you again.

So all i gotta do is get a good score on the test and complete the hiring process then i get offered a port. Hows the pay compared to bp and is the job fun or is it boring. thanks
        It will not be GL pay and you will not receive AUO. From there, figure the math out. However if you are that un-happy after 6 months, not counting how long it took you to get hired, the academy and knowing going in where you would work and how long you would have to stay there...decision is up to you. I know of several ex BP's that are now with ICE as DO and love every paycheck and the job itself.

        • Alright this might be a silly question to you guys, but I have no law enforcement experiences and little knowledge of the jurisdictions and such.

          If you are chasing after a suspect, how do you identify yourself?

          Do you say federal officer, customs and border protection officer, or police?

            I don't think CBPOs do too much chasing of subjects. I think they leave that to the guys in green. Then again, I suppose it might happen at a port now and again.

            disclosure: not a CBPO, talking out of my butt, etc etc...

              This will be covered in training, use whatever the training officers tell you to use.

              In the real world, it's probably a bit of all three.

              • Anyone else get another random NOR today? This is the 4th time I have received a copy of my original NORs. Also I tested in July and still haven't received a TO for VT, does anyone know anything about upcoming T.O.s or vacancies? Specifically VT.

                Thank you for all the help guys and girls.

                  Sounds like a glitch then. This just happened to someone one page back in this thread, so I'd not worry about it. Heck, it might even mean they're working on your app!

                  • I received an email from MHS today:
                    "You have been requested to begin rescheduling your medical and fitness exams for your application with U. S. Customs and Border Protection."

                    This seemed odd since I just did them on Septemper 4th. I emailed her back and she said that comprehensive health said I was a no show. I was wondering what was taking so long to update Med and FIT in CASS.

                    I called the clinic that I went to and they said that they sent the packet the same day.

                    MHS said they have requested the documents from CHS.

                    My fun for the day.

                      Thanks for the optimism. I know we all have to wait; but 3-4 months seems longer than most have waited for a TO. I just want to get started so I can hurry and wait.

                      • Field Office Patch is in the field...

                        ...an SCO just got his first shirt with the new left side patch.

                        IMHO (and his): It's huge (bigger than the CBP Patch, much bigger).

                        Would be interesting to hear other CBPOs chime in on their opinion.

                        I guess we'll get used to it.

                          The agency worrys way too much about the uniform and what it looks like and not enough about how this job should actually be done.

                              I actually had this happen to me today as well. I almost was going to use it as an excuse to call MHC to check the status of my application. lol.
