    Yes you have an interim clearance, if it appears completed and you met your investigator this past friday...
    Your BI still has to get back to the adjudicators, and if they don't find anything objectionable, then and only then will you be actually cleared...

      The disqualifying factors are if you have been convicted of any felonies, as you were "arrested" on the spot by a police officer and then had your charges dropped, it shouldn't count. You will most likely will receive a NOPA to explain why/how/what happened and to show why/how/what you have changed since then. Since you have been in the military since then, and hopefully with no reprimands or anything and an honorable discharge... you will be fine...

      Hope this helped...

        What Yoda said...

        Two minor arrests, no convictions, 10 years ago, and you've sinced moved on to a respectable career in the military...you may not even draw a NOPA.

        Assuming your credit is respectable, that your driving record is decent, and that there's nothing else you're hiding from the board, I don't see much of a problem. At worst you'll pick up an easily beaten NOPA.

        Thanks for serving and good luck.

I had an application rejected by another agency even though I meet all the requirements and the nice lady on the phone basically told me that it was because my resume wasn't written correctly.

          Don't do it. Not worth the cost $250 . Are they looking for a certain format? Get somebody that you know who has experience writing them or their are plenty of info on-line or resume writing books that you can get!!

          • Anyone that recently took their VBT got their VBT results back yet?

            • No results yet but they said 3-4 weeks. They had to finish up with the batch then mail them to Boston to be reviewed.

                You took yours in the Bay Area right? I have a feeling it might be awhile before anyone sees results; Bronze said ~150 people were getting their VBTs done. That's a LOT of tapes to go over.
                "Officer, you are kinda hot."

                "And you are kinda intoxicated."

                    Yep, I'm one of them. Just took my VBT in Oakland this morning. All I would say is that it is a kinda a weird experiance for myself. And there is a disclosure agreement you do have to sign.

                      You're looking at small, slow and mostly uninteresting, with the possible exceptions of Pembina and Portal. Even Pembina and Portal aren't all that important on a national scale.
                      Ports. Got it. Thanks. ND sounds like a good place to start. Just had a look at the map of all the ports in the state. Concerning the out of the way ports, generally do officers live in the small communities or commute from Grand Forks, Minot, Etc..

                          Good deal, I'm heading to SFO to take it on Thursday. Did you stay the night somewhere or just drive from Sacramento area? (I'm in a Sacramento suburb)

                            How do you get your results? Application manager, email, postal service, or does it just clear on CASS?

                            • food for thought...

                              Just a heads up for all you guys/gals who assume they have been granted "interim" clearance. Im the last guy to be the grim reaper, but the whole "interim" is crap if you were assume to think your good to go. I was at FLETC last year and damn near half my class got pullled out at one point or another to answer up and sign forms, etc. for BI stuff. Trust me, I know for a ball sack kicking fact that it mean nothing. Yes, you do go to fletc, no doubt, but the fact that your fingerprints dont show you to be a murderer doesnt mean theyre not gonna F with you.Theres no science to it whatsoever. Granted I would rather have an interim and start getting paid asap, but clearing BI in "CASS" doesnt mean you are out of the woods yet. Just make sure to have your info, paperwork, and story of your life in order, because you can find yourself in the 15th week of the academy sweating your job. (Trust Me...)

                              • You know...I'd just like to find this search button that everyone talks about on here....i can't seem to find it anywhere and using the google search isn't finding anything.... It should be easily accessible and visable and then there wouldn't be so many repeat questions......
