    Just completed my vbt at Long Beach. It was easier then I thought, but that does not mean I'll pass. I was really nervous in the beginning. My "answers" got better as the test went on. good luck to all the people who are taking the vbt.

    • Vbt

      I was stressed over the VBT too I left wondering if i did what I was suppose too and if I should have done more. The stressing was the worst part about the whole darn thing. it is actually A piece of cake.

            • Hello guys,
              I talked to my adjudicator this morning and she told me that from what she had seen on my NOPA response, she would be giving me a recommendation, after that it would be in the hands of her supervisor and God knows how long and if he will approve it as well. The only way to know now is getting a response from HR.

              Now to the NEW posters,
              Welcome to the Forum!... Please keep in mind that this is a Law Enforcement Forum, and as CBPO Hopefuls we need to watch our language, and our spelling!

Read through the thread before posting a question, it most likely has been answered 20 times if not more, the search feature IS your friend...
              So... Welcome and lets look sharp

                Well good luck. I've been following all you've had to go through and it'd be a travesty if you didn't get on. I'll keep my fingers cross for you.

                  Thank goodness. I remember reading why you got your NOPA, and hopefully this will all clear up soon. Good luck to you.

                  Also, to the newer applicants: Use the search function to search for answers to your questions!

                  I REPEAT:
                  USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION TO HELP FIND ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS.

                  using the search function (or just using google's specific site search feature) can usually answer lots of your questions. Example: If you want to read up on NOPA responses, you can type it in and it will spit out all the possible matches. Another way is to go to google and type in 'nopa response site:forums.officer.com' This will make google spit out all the related matches on nopa responses just from O.com. It works just as well, but some people prefer Google cause of its highlighting and caching options. Happy posting!
                  "Officer, you are kinda hot."

                  "And you are kinda intoxicated."

                    • Hello all...

                      FYI, started pre-academy last week at JFK. Not too bad except for the cd's which will put you to sleep after some time. Shadowing is way better and more interesting.

                      Heading to FLETC on 11/12.

                      Good Luck to everyone in the process and just be patient!

                      • Seems that there are all of a sudden a lot more Detroiters on the forum.

                        Has anyone heard of new hires being offered a choice of locations between the airport, tunnel, or bridge?

                          Mine was in town for two days. I think he interviewed about 15 people. He just kept building lists by asking each reference for even more references. He was very thorough. Not every thing can be done immediately, it will probably take some time for everything to clear. Best thing to do is not think about it and go about your life.

                            • Small weird question: Do the locality rates depend on if you're in the exact city that's listed, or is it just a general area? For example, If I were to hypothetically work at the Otay Mesa border crossing near San Diego, would I get the locality pay for San Diego or just the normal hike because it's technically not San Diego (I believe it's Chula Vista or San Ysidro or one of the two)?

                              • I had the same question because the cities listed for locality for Maine don't even have POEs or stations in them. I was told that I would fall under the "Rest of the U.S." scale, so ultimately I would lose about 7%.
