      Hou33guy , no not for me. I applied 18-6 DH. As far as I know, those ports haven’t been offered. They offer whatever that was listed under what you applied for, for the most part. I know applicants have asked for specific ports and they may be able to offer them to you, I’m not really sure.

      @vik2500: geez.. I wish I could find a rate like that. 17 days for an extended stay is literally costing me $1250 with a government rate in VA.

      Hi vik2500 I'm in job announcement 18-6 as well. Are you from the locations they are offering or from some other state? I'm from Miami but definitely ready to relocate..

  • Kind of a random question. But when your background clears, does it just update on Cass? Do they email you? Or is it both?

      You don’t get any email it’ll just clear on Cass
      And they only email you when they need more information about something which is not a good thing.
      Iit’s a matter of time bro
      Be patient
      Good luck

      Is it a bad sign of your not granted provisional? Just curious. They determined shortly after poly.

  • So just curious, what wait times did everybody see between hitting 50% in CASS, and getting contacted to schedule their poly? It’s been about 5 months since passing my SI, but just finally got medical clearance today and hit 50%. Hoping to maybe get a call for the poly before the holidays, although I know that may be a bit quick. Thanks!

        boconnor I was going to ask if a personal firearm is allowed under LEOSA or duty fire arm only. Thanks for the answer.

        Just curious, how does a retire CBPO obtain a LEOSA ID? Through DHS?

        When i was an MP in the Army we were cleared to carry off post using LEOSA. However you have to carry you're credentials. Since in the military we didn't really have credentials, however most of us had Military Police badges and our unit made an Pistol qual cert for us to carry with. When i went to court and other places I would displayed my badge and military i.d. I was allowed to go everywhere. You dont have to get a CHL or LTC after already being credentialed

        All CBP Officers are vetted for a TS clearance.

        Actually having an active clearance as a CBPO requires working job duties where having such a clearance is necessary and warranted.

        I did have a clearance when i was a air traffic controller in the navy, cant remember it it was secret or top secret, that was 10 yrs ago

        Editing a comment
        Hou33guy if you weren't polygraphed and had an SSBI done 10 years ago, which is basically a "lifestyle" clearance needed for a TS, you most likely never had it. OPM and DoD have very similar criteria for their TS clearance. That's why if you hold an active one from the military, it will potentially waive your poly and expedite your BI for BP. As CBPO or BP, you will hold a clearance which is equivalent to the TS. That is what the BI is for.

        Ok then it must have been a secret clearance i had, cause i was fresh out of high school when i joined the navy and didnt do a polygraph

    • Question,
      If you made a mistake on your Eqip or assessment, (minor issue, just forgot that it happened 10 years ago and checked no..instead of yes...not even sure if they recorded this incident, bought $50 of cold flu medicine from foreign country for my mom, and forgot to declare it on Custom form, they verified it was cold flu med but confiscated and destroyed it later)
      how do you correct it? Or just wait until you meet up with BI and tell them? or even worth telling them?
      Thanks

        @ Tony, I told my both Poly Examiner and BI about something I forgot to put down in my EQIP. It wasn't anything major but it kept bugging me and I did talked to my case manager and she told me to let the Poly examiner know when you get there. So I told him know and he just smiled and said thanks for being honest and he wrote it down and asked if I have anything else that I want to get it out. When we were done he told me to tell my BI as well.

        I lived in TN for most of my application process. Did SI in Memphis. I did not have any close cities for poly. I think it was South Carolina, Texas, Chicago that were in the 8 to 11 hr drive range from my area then. When I redid my application for 18-13, the options were the same. I always chose Chicago for the poly bc I live here now and when I was in the South, it was the least amount of distance compared to other cities offered for the poly.

        Catch wind of any more openings at that port by any chance?

    • Quick question. I was in process and failed the poly probably about 8ish years ago. Genuinely don't know why. Never been arrested. Never was into drugs. Basically have a couple speeding tickets in my life. That's it. Is it worth giving it another shot, or will they just see I failed before and say forget it.

        tigersin2009 CBP is hurting for people. If this is something you really want, don't let one "failure" stop you from getting it. I put that in quotes cause I believe in winning or learning. No such thing as failing if you get back on the horse.

        Reapply! If it’s something you really want, go for it. I failed the poly in 2015, applied this year and i told my examiner about the failed poly, we discussed it and at the end of my poly I was told I passed by him. They use the most recent results dating back 2 years, so your definitely able reapply right now

        Wow thanks for the replies! I'm absolutely going to re-apply. I've been hesitant because of having to take a pay cut initially from what I'm doing now, but I'm not passionate at all and I realized money isn't the most important thing in the world.
