My TO letters says its at 16 mins and 30 secs, so does that mean the time required to run 1.5 mile hasn't changed yet?
      The word at FLETC is that the run time is supposed to change. Now whether they lower it to 14, 15 or whatever I'm not sure, but its suppose to change. I guess a lot of things are changing for CBP here, for example a pursuit driving course is suppose to be coming into play. And they are saying they want to merge ptd, at, and dt into one chunk of instruction. But again who knows.

          Depends what you start at. Gs 5 it will take 3 years. Gs 7 it will take 2 years.

                That would be good if they combined it all. My group had pt and dt back to back and it was better just to have to get all sweated up and deal with that locker room once instead of two different times.

                  The TO's from this summer/fall state 15 minutes for the 1.5 mile run, I was told.

                  Truthfully, unless you're injured there's not really all that many legitimate reasons why a male can't run the 1.5 mile under 15 minutes. As for females...a bit harder to do, but still well within reach of the motivated.

                  • I heard that as of July 2008, CBP officers receive the federal LE 20yr retirement. Is this true? Please only answer is you are an actual CBP officer or know positively.

                      The retirement is 25 years and out, or 20 years service and 50 years old. It can be found here:
                      http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/ht...2----000-.html

                      Our retirement requirements can be found in sub-section d. Congress modified the section to add CBPO's behind nuclear materials courier.
                      But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

                      For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.

                          Well you'll already be assigned to a POE before you go to the academy. If you dont want to be anywhere other than NY for at least 2-3 yrs or maybe ever, dont accept a geo location and go to FLETC

                            Short answer, minus the song and dance...yes.
                            For any new hire, CBPO retirement is exactly the same as any other 12D/6C retirement.

                            CBPO's on board as of 07/08 recieve a modified retirement. Mostly, that consists of a mandatory retirement age waiver.

                            • I have a question. What's a marine interdiction agent? I am interested in CBP and especially in the Washington State area. I looked at usa jobs and saw no openings. How do I go about applying for or finding a job around here?
