  • Socalrob,

    My background investigation has been going on since the summer. In December I was contacted out of the blue by another investigator asking additional information. Is it normal for it to take this long? I haven't heard anything since..

        • I haven't heard it taking that long, but I have heard of two separate contractors doing the investigation.

          If you have lived in many places, worked many jobs, they're going to go and verify them all, maybe that's your case. Best of luck, my man.

          • My background took 4 months to clear and I had three investigators. I reapplied and am waiting three months for them to move my background over from the 14-2 announcement to the 16-1.

              One, I'd focus in on getting through the hiring process and, once hired, learning the complexities and responsibilities of the job before I'd put much thought into what's out there for specialized units. Don't put the cart before the horse. That's IMO...take it or not.

              Two, that will really depend on the port one works at and how you want to define a specialized unit. There's a national SRT unit. there's a national honor guard unit. There are K9 units in some ports. The larger ports often have various response, enforcement and analytical units. Some ports more or less allow people to 'specialize' in cargo or immigration. Lots of those options might not exist in the many ports...or they exist more as a collateral duty rather than a recognized specialized unit. Some situations might have it where there's more or less the titular designation as a specialized unit, but largely in name only.

              Beyond that, there are various collateral duties that might be considered as specialized units...firearms instructors, intermediate force instructors, etc. that could be considered specialized units under the right circumstances. Various ports have various collateral duties available, or not, as the case might be.

              Edited to add...

              Much, if not most, of what's available out there will be largely, if not exclusively, based on seniority time as a CBPO. You'll likely will have years to figure out what's potentially at your port for you before you can gain enough real seniority to make a serious bid at any meaningful specialized unit.

              • Ironlion09,

                Unfortunately, I really don't know about the time-line for the backgrounds. Have you completed all the other phases to include your poly? Once you are on the job you will still have to complete periodic background checks and those are hit and miss as far as how long they may take to clear. Hope you get your call soon!

                • When's the next opening for applications? Anyone know?

                  • There's a new opening the first day of each Month.

                      So can they change your port while your in the academy since you reapplied?

                      • So I just got an email that my Background packet has been sent to IA I'm guessing that's the security room everyone's talking about? Do I receive a Poly date during this process or after? Because I haven't done my poly yet and I noticed some people did there poly before there BI.

                            I was told it's very possible and it does happen.

                              • It's been 4 weeks since I took the polygraph and was accused of doing drugs. Hoping it was bs and that I passed. How quick do people get those withdrawal of employment emails?
