      just remember take a breath and then answer the question. Answer the question the way you would do it...not the way you think they want to hear it

      Briscora I’m surprised they still had the SI during the shutdown actually. That’s good

  • Ok question y'all. So do to shutdown I've been applying and testing for police departments. So when I handed in my phs on it it says list other police departments and agencies. So I listed cbp. They asked me after testing when I turned it in about applying to cbp, where I am in the process and what I'm waiting on. I told them I'm waiting on final adjudication. Does this hurt or help or neither when applying to p.d. I really want cbp but I'm trying to be proactive. Any help would be appreciated.

      Will they at least interview you? Ask if you would prefer working for their department? I figured it would be a positive. Them seeing that you made it that far would look as a positive outlook on character. So I probably blew my chance I guess. Or am I overlooking it?

  • Hal29, they ask because they don't want to waste the time hiring and training you if you're just going to leave for CBP. The same happened to me but they will wait and see if you get hired by CBP, before they hire you.

    • Got my final selection letter email today! I EOD 2/8 at Dulles, VA and I'll be at FLETC from 2/26-7/1 Class 473! Anyone else around the same dates? It feels so real now that I got the letter!

        Curious when you started the process?

    • Took entrace exam on Jan 3rd.. Been two weeks & still no NOR. Is this because of the shutdown? Or give it another few weeks ?

        Congrats! How did it go? Was your examiner a contractor or did they work for CBP? Any mention of the shutdown at all?

    • JStyleszx , it normally takes 4 to 6 wks before you get your NOR.

      • Does anyone know what the current policy is on tattoos for CBP? Will I just have to wear sleeves? They're already aware of the tattoos I do have, but I have plans for more.

          Sweet! That's what I was hoping.

      • I am currently waiting for my background to clear. 19-2 GS9. Once the investigator turns it in who clears it. Are they furloughed? Haven't heard from my investigator in 3 weeks.

          I’m 18-2 GS9 and met with my investigator in the first week of august, and he submitted it a few days later. I haven’t heard anything since. Was really excited to be at the final stages of the process but this has definitely been the longest time frame in between updates.

      • I wish this process was a little more smoother. Since my background investigator came to talk to my sergeant and squad I haven't heard anything. Now just about my whole department knows I'm trying to leave. Most are happy for me but the few that are not mainly supervisors are not happy. I have to continue my career as if I'm not leaving because I don't know what can happen from the time I get notified of anything. I'm putting in for schools for more certification to better myself and to help in my career. My uppers are looking at me like why should I help you now you're leaving. I'm weathering the storm but I feel its going to get worse before it settles.

          Evolution81 you got to care because from that time you get the call. Your career law enforcement wise is in somebody else's hands. Imagine waiting for a call 8 and 9 months from the time your investigators show up. But from that whole time you had no chance of even advancing in your current job when you probably would of if they hadn't know you had other plans.

          when i ment who cares..not your post but the inevitability of the investigator WILL visit your job and talk to your boss/co worker bro..so you mine as well not think about it...when you make the dive into fed leo gigs...that is the calculated risk we take

          Evolution81 I Gotcha

      • A few quick questions. This is where I’m at in the process:

        APPLY CBP 18-13
        WRITTEN 09/14/2018 PASS
        EQIP TO OPR 10/15/18
        SI 10/16/18 PASS
        POLY 12/11/18 PASS
        FITNESS 11/06/18 PASS
        MED 10/15/18 PASS
        DRUG 01/09/2019
        BI MEETING 01/03/2019
        FINAL OFFER ????

        1) How much longer, generally, should I expect before I have a final offer? (If the shutdown wasn’t a factor and my background was finished)
        2) I heard the next academy is in May, do you believe I would be slated for that academy, given how quick the process has gone?
        3) I applied with a preference for Chicago, but haven’t heard anything regarding location or anything, is that a good sign that I’m looking at getting assigned to Chicago?
        4) Is there a pass/fail fitness test at the beginning of the academy? I know there are graduation requirements that must be met, but didn’t know if there were requirements you have to meet at the start or get sent home

          Yeah still doing my bi, met with the investigator a couple weeks back and he’s already visited my works and reached out to people via phone and in person. Still wondering if this shutdown is effecting me getting the call, since I have no idea where I may even be going.

          Well once your investigator is done and submits your file it goes to opm who are in furlough for final adjudication. Which can take 3-4 months or longer. If you got provisional they will give eod without the bi being completed. But with the shutdown I'm doubting they are doing provisional as that is determined by opm. So it may be a while yet. Just hang tight.

          JB411 Which app? On CBP's app it just says its being reviewed, and I will be notified of the results. The one where I scheduled everything for the initial med is just blank.

          V_AntCBP you get notified of your case manager through emails. The first one came with my e-QIP packet request. The second came separately, from the actual new case manager.

          V_AntCBP, You're welcome. From my understanding they only have access to certain aspects of your file/case. I know they told me once your file is released to OPR, they no longer have access to your BI.

          Im hoping the same thing. Maybe pull in funding from defense budget or declaring a national crisis and getting funding. We will see. Let's keep our fingers crossed. It's been long waited for both of us.

      • Finally got my emailed seletion letter today, class 474. EOD 12 FEB class date 28 FEB.
