          eikichi10 can you tell me when was you Eqip released to OPR from the time you re-certified it on 10/4? just trying to get an idea of the timeline, i re-certified a few days ago and it was sent to OPR on the 10/29. hopefully BI will be calling me soon.

          eikichi10 wow five polys. Did you have the same examiner in Newark? I believe I am going to have to take another.

          Congrats on getting the pass!

      • Jfd the p2000 is not considered a full size firearm. It is compact. They are pretty easy to conceal if that is what your looking to do. I conceal a full size with no issues.

          The p320 is nice. Once they fixed all the issues it became a well design and reliable pistol.

        Is it possible to ask for a polygraph in Valley Stream instead of Newark? It would be much more convenient for me if so. Or do they just give you the date and place, unchangeable?

          they usually schedule the polygraph near where you are, but you can also ask for other location

      • Just curious if anyone has the same EOD & FLETC dates as me.
        EOD: November 26th, 2018 - December 7th, 2018 @ JFK
        FLETC: December 10th, 2018 - April 19th 2019

        Update: I received my final offer email today, I'll be in class 465 @ FLETC.

        • Well everyone, it finally came! I got the call yesterday for the CBPO position!

          I took the 24 hours to make a choice. I tried calling them twice earlier but I had to leave a voice message.

          I was given two EOD options. One for December 4th or April 22. I am going to take the December EOD.

          Heres the locations I was offered: they asked me if I was interested in going to a mission critical area in AZ, which I said I was really hoping to stick to the east coast.

          I was offered Champlain, NY. Holton, ME. Derby Line and Norton, VT. Miami and Fort Lauderdale, FL and Dulles, VA.

          Once they call me back today or I get a hold of them today, I will be choosing Fort Lauderdale as my location.

          I’m hoping to hear from them really soon today!

          Thank you to everyone on this forum. It was good to find a place where people are going through the same motions as me. That really helped me a lot.

            congrats man!! I see one of those locations that Ive been eyeing since I applied back in November of 2017. Miami-Ft Lauderdale. Im currently at the BI stage for both GS9 Border Patrol and CBPO but I think my deciding factor between them is if i get offered Miami or FT Lauderdale. Im from Miami but moved to ATL for LEO position. I travel back so much its like i still live there. So im definitely looking to get back to the beaches lol! Good luck and make the most of it! My process has been stalled for about 4 months when they requested additional info for medical. before that I was flying through the process (a little hope for those who get requested additional med info, mine took 4 months). After that I was schedule for poly withing two weeks. Had a bad *** examiner who reminded me of John Wick! he was very cool and respectful, and although I have not failed any poly before, he made the setting relaxed and comfortable (especially after all the stories I've read on the Poly). took that early October, lasted about 4 hours and he let me know i passed. Background Investigation began October 20ish. Last I heard from my background investigator was a text for good luck a week after he met all my LEO co workers. So hopefully I hear something real soon because we all know once they come to your job to interview the co workers, every one gets to staring at you for leaving, Cant get days off for vacation, etc.

            Im just patiently waiting lol. But goknights, you were offered and picked a great location!and get ready to make some great money!

        • I appreciate everyone’s congratulations. I wish all
          of you as much luck through your process as possible.

          I guess they decided to give more than 24 hours to think more about my choice because I never got a call to confirm where I want to go. Trust me, I tried calling them at least 10 times today and nada.

          Not going to lie, I’m irritated they didn’t call
          me today but hey, it’s really not a bad problem
          to have and I’m sure I will hear from them early next week.

          Enjoy your weekend everyone!

            Nycguy718 I wasn’t given a class number over the phone. I was just told I should get an email giving me more details two weeks before my EOD

        • Well, today I was sitting at a local agency awaiting my polygraph, when I got my my “unfavorable” email result for my BP polygraph, 10 minutes later walked in to take my poly and walked out with passing results. Don’t mean to be negative just because I failed BP poly...but the examiner who just did my poly today retired from BP as a poly examiner and spoke really negative on how BP polys are done...that’s the only reason why he retired from doing polygraphs with the agency... I will be reapplying in 2 years hopefully by then I’ll be eligible for G7. Goodluck to those still in the process and congrats to those who made it through this turtle walk.

            Thank you! I don't think it is as bad as people picture it here, it is long and mentally tiring as there is nothing fun of one person just asking you questions for hours.... but as long as you stick to telling the truth, I'm sure you will be fine and specially if as you stated you've never done anything wrong but again stick to the truth. I took mine in Palm Gardens which is about an hour and a half from home (Miami).

        • Does anyone have any personal knowledge of the work/family life on the SWB? I’m starting to gain interest in that 33% incentive they are offering but don’t want to sacrifice my family for it. Whoever has some knowledge, please share with me.

            I’m DH so I’ll be going to the SWB no matter what, I’m still going to try and get a larger city like El Paso over one of the places with a big incentive though. The issue is, the incentive is only for 3 years, but I’ve heard transferring out of some of the super remote border regions can take 5-10 years. I just can’t imagine being trapped in the middle of nowhere for a decade. Even with the extra cash. Having access to good medical care/schools/arts and entertainment etc. is probably better in the long run.

            Arizona has good education depending on where you go. Tucson is over by Nogales. There is education, medical, a rich social and night life, restaraunts, bars and so much more. Look at Rio Rico. There is a lot that Arizona offers. El Paso is nice as well. But getting that area is a far cry as it is not offered. Yes Arizona offers a 3 year incentive but that is also 3 years pulling in the ranks as well. El Paso has no incentives, cost of living pay is also low. My choices personally is Nogales, then el Paso. I just feel az offers so much more. If you want night life you got it. You want outdoor life you got it. Just my personal opinion. It is all research and you don't have to live in the port you work.

        • Just curious, has anyone ever reached out to the “IACADScheduling” email address for poly questions and ever actually gotten a response? It’s the go-to recommendation from recruiters and MHC to get in touch with the poly division regarding questions, but it seems like it may be an un-monitored email. I’ve sent them several specific questions over the past few months and not once have I gotten a reply.

            I sent them a email about when I can get called for the poly. Idk if it was coincidence but a few days later I got the call to schedule it. They never emailed me back. I only received a call.
