      Well...I'll leave it up to a CBPO-E to explain his position.

      Essentially though, a CBPO-E is an unfettered one.

      Or...to put it another way, a CBPO-E job is a CBPO position in which one is allowed much more leeway in developing the CBPO position towards it's full potential.

      • Anyone been to FLETC recently? Did you get your locality pay while you were there? Or do they bump you down to the regular GS rate without locality pay?

          While you are at FLETC you'll be on temporary duty there. Your pay will come from your home port. You'll get paid at FLETC whatever locality pay your home port offers.

            To clarify things abit further:

            The CBPO-E position was created by CBP (and legacy agencies) because of the need to have a few CBPO's do things like prosecutions and investigations. Prosecutions and investigations require "LEO" status, so the decision was to 'promote' a few CBPO's into the 'new' job, rather than to just make everyone "LEO's" and under 12D/6C retirement.

            Now that eneryone is covered under 12D/6C, either by "LEO" status or "enhanced CBPO" status, who knows where the position will end up.

              im positive there is no form in the packet listed as the modified background investigation statement. but again, there is a "provisional clear background investigation statement of understanding" form.

              • CBP Enforcement Officers are defined as law enforcement officers under 12(d) whereas CBP Officers are not. Both now have the same retirement, but a CBPOE is specifically designated a LE officer under the law.
                What a CBPOE does is different at every location. At some ports, CBPOE's do nothing extra and continue to do basic CBPO work. At other's, they are responsible for more complicated cases. Where I work, CBPOE's do any type of investigation they can...Sometime too much since in most cases they are limited to the phone, fax, mail, email, and their imagination to complete an invesitgation/prosecution case.

                    As far as I know...yes. Mon.-Fri. 0730-1630. 1 hour off for lunch some time midday.

                    Sometimes, in order to push people out quicker they run classes 6 days a week with folks working Sat. on 8hrs. 2X OT. Depending on when you'll be going, you might run into a 6 day schedule

                    • Merlin,
                      I am over 37 but my SF-50 states in box 30 that I am under "M" coverage and not 12d or 6c. Where would I fall. I was also 1896 and not an 1895 series. Basically a BPA for a short period of time. We will see soon if I can still continue the CBPO process.

                        Maybe you or a recent graduate of FLETC might know this, but how is doing a 6 days a week scheduled out? Is it strictly done when the budget has room for it or when they are in dire need of bodies at ports at a particular time? Or do they just decide that a range of classes will be moving along quicker than others?

                          How much older than 37 are you?
                          When did you get apply?
                          When did you get your TO?
                          How long were you a PA? Did you ever hold another 12D/6C covered position?

                          I'll have to look into what "M" in box 30 means.

                            From what I've seen, it's done to punch out the maximum numbers of Officers.
                            I suppose they could do it for whatever reason they want. Obviously, the budget needs to be able to accomodate it.

                            Back in 03-04 it was done more often. Of course, back in those days it was CBP's position that they needn't pay OT for extra hours under 'training status'. Officers waited 2-3 years for that to battle itself out but eventually most folks received back OT for the academy.
