      Jones- are you a veteran? ive been trying to get info on who to talk to about my VA benifits for OJT (on the job training) I have 4 forms to fil out but 3/4 is for DHS to fill out. The recruiters are a joke and the TSU contractor told me not to use it lol the recruiter told me the same thing.

      The current issued sidearm is the H&K P2000 .40 caliber. There is a new 9MM coming in the future.

      Standard fare for the average CBPO includes qualification in the M4 .223 and the 12 gauge.

  • I applied and accepted offer as a g7 , fixed my resume and reapplied and got accepted for g9. Does anyone know if I would get another call from tsu or how does it work when everything transfers over to the new announcement. Thank you.

    • Did you accept the final offer for GS7? Did you select the same location for GS9?

        Yes I accepted, and same location for the 9.

    • So I got a hypothetical for y’all. I’m in the hiring process for CBPO 18-8 VRA GS7, I just got my tentative selection letter for BPA VRA GS9 today.

      If I were to reapply for CBPO GS9, but labeled as not eligible for whatever reason, would I have to start over or would I stay in the hiring process with GS7?

      Also, if I were to be accepted as a CBPO GS9 would it push me to the back of the hiring process line since it’s a later announcement?

        i dont believe so, i applied for both at the same time pretty much. BPA did all the leg work for CBP moved my packet right along

    • I messaged a recruiter yesterday and got a reply in 10 minutes which Is was far off the typical standard I’m used to so far. No real answer but a game me a bit more hope. My guess is that everyone at 50% is at the same point.

      “I was able to look up both your background and your status in the system. Background in still pending and as you stated, your poly is awaiting scheduling. Last touch on your background was on 2/15/19 so they are moving in the right direction. Unfortunately, 70% of all are applicants are at the same stage so it is just taking a bit of time to get through them all in a timely fashion.

      While I do not have a time frame for you on this I expect that it will move along shortly for you.”

      • Does anyone know if we receive a call from Lowell, MA. I received a call this morning but missed it, and shortly after my husband did too, and he too couldn’t answer at work. But when I attempt to call it back it doesn’t ring.

            Just took/passed mine this last week (18-10). Yes, there are some horror stories out there, but it is a pretty easy and straightforward process (now anyways). I was in and out in 3 hours, and only a small fraction of that was actual testing. The examiner will go over the test with you prior to you being hooked up, so you won't be surprised by any of the test questions. Just relax, be truthful, and be cordial/accommodating to your examiner.

        • Hello everyone! 18-6 CBP and BPA waiting on background to clear.

          • @ JPOL Congrats for moving along the process for CBP I don’t think you are required to take the PFT2 test unless you are in 17-3 announcements but either way you are closer to the EOD.

            • Hi all. Due to Nogales in April and have a bunch of questions if anyone is available to answer them, any help would be appreciated. Mostly general questions about transporting to academy, specifics of academy, and if any has any tips on where to live and other aspects of being in nogales. Thanks in advance!

                Standard travel to/from the academy is by air...excepting local travel.

                If it is possible it is advisable to arrange to drive yourself so that you'll have a vehicle available for personal use. Also, if you drive yourself, you can pretty much bring along whatever comfort items you want to FLETC.

                Seems like they are pushing people through. In a weeks time, I was called, scheduled, verbally passed, and officially passed (18-10).

            • Howdy ya'll!!

              Been following for a long while, but figured it was time to throw my information in here. Hoping to share any info. I had applied to BPA 16-7, CPBO 16-8, and MIA 19-3.

              To be fair to CBP, the 16-X applications were put on hold due to a 3 year military recall. Started the process back in October 2018 and was flying through till the shutdown.

              Also waiting on the referral list for MIA 19-3 to be generated (shut down delayed everything).

                  OFO is the office within CBP that virtually all CBPOs work out of.

                  Not everyone who works in OFO is a CBPO...but the vast majority of OFO are CBPOs.

                  Customs and Border Protection Officer(CBPO) is the job. CBPOs generally work out of Ports of Entry(POEs). Most Ports of Entry are either land border ports, airports or seaports. Office of Field Operations(OFO) is a subdivision of Customs and Border Protection(CBP) that largely deals with ports, customs and immigration at legitimate crossings. Office of Border Patrol(OBP) is the Office that Border Patrol falls under. Most Border Patrol employees are Border Patrol Agents(BPAs). Border Patrol usually work between land border POEs pretty much exclusively dealing with non-legitimate border traffic.
