      raudy06 I saw that, but thats a timeline of when they expect EVERYONE to have it, it will be issued before that and will logically start at the academy. The question is how soon.

      They will have 3 models to choose from, this is coming from DHS. Hopefully they start giving them out for the new academy dates. My academy day is next week, I’ve shot the HK and wasn’t impressed with it. Shoots wells but very small on the hands...awkward feel for a guy with big hands

  • Hey quick question for you guys I'm from call 17-10 (yes it's been a long while since the beginning stages in September of 2017) just finished up with my 3rd Polygraph and got a verbal pass...my question on here is about the BI and the workplace. I dont have any issues at my workplace or anything like that, but I would like to keep it private except for references which I have put down that know I applied. I dont really want everyone around my job knowing I plan on leaving if everything works out. Does the BI actually go to the job to talk to people. Or just does like neighbors, references Wife, and things like that. Or would I be able to discuss my issues with him about my job beforehand?? Anyone have any ideas. Thanks in advance

      This is one of the issues I don't like too. They come to your job, everybody knows you are leaving and 6 months later, you are still there... will feel extremely weird... fort1978 but yes, they will come to your job... and mostly just talk to your current boss and maybe HR rep,

      Really I wouldn't have a problem with then talking to my boss since he already knows what's in the works and a few people that work with me already know also which isnt an issue but an H.R. rep would be an issue cause they would let everyone know....lol....hopefully it will just be my boss or a few of my bosses since I have about 3....lol

      @ Icemanusa Are you DH, and under this new expedited hiring initiative?

      Congratulations either way, but that seems insanely fast for someone who just applied.

      I did apply to both the regular and DH announcement as well as BP Did not sign provisional nor am I on the expedited initiative as far as I know that started after I applied. I did decline the offer and accepted one for border patrol.

  • David1984

    i believe it. There are 19-4 BP applicants who have already taken their polygraph.

        Where are you in the process? I'm 17-11. Took my poly 03/25 and passed. Waiting for Drug test and BI.

    • Ok so I got a call today from Minnesota to check on how my process was going. So first question...Is that a good sign?
      I was also curious if anyone else here has gotten "the call" under Direct Hire vacancy and was given a choice of were to go. I am really really REALLY am hoping to get the Rio Grand Valley area were I am and were my husband has been BP for 16 yrs now. However, when I talk to the woman on the phone today she said that I was under Loredo, Del Rio, Persidio, and I believe El Paso. My vacancy stated "location negotiable"...what do you all think my changes are for getting something down here?

        I think a few pages back someone got a call regarding the process - nothing special aside from a quality check. Did you check your application to see the locations?

        on my app its DH and "location negotiable" the only location closest to me at the time I applied was Roma so thats what I selected but its about a 2 hour drive from here.

        EQIP is something that can be always kicked back to you for updates, specially after POLY, they send it back to you Labeled something like " EQIP re-certification prior to commencement of Field portion(the investigator interviews) of BI" ( not those exact words) in others words is not really DONE done until you are adjudicated.

        Safranco2 You're moving along nicely. The e-QIP can take a while for them to review it before it gets released to OPR. Especially since you're like me, and they're changing your case manager on you. I'm currently on my 3rd one, but luckily my 2nd one took care of my e-QIP right before they switched out.

        Safranco2 That's good, as long as they accept your corrections, it should be released to OPR soon. Nope I'm 18-13 Regular applicant.

    • Hi guys! I recently joined this forum, but have been reading various posts for a while now. I'm currently in the process for the CBPO 19-1 position at IAD. I'm currently at 50%, and took my polygraph last week. The examiner signaled that I passed, but I just received an email from the examiner asking me to come in for additional testing at the request of QC. Is this a cause for concern, or a normal occurrence? Any advice would be much appreciated.

        I studied abroad for about a year in a foreign country the US is not really on great terms with. I’m curious if it has something to do with that.

      • In the process of CBP job application. Been reading post and seems like most go through the first few steps super fast and then it drastically slows down. Is this for all job? Or is US customs and border patrol have different time frames?

          Border Patrol tends to move way faster than CBPO.... and yes, everything will slow down tremendously after SI.... if you want its fast and can go to swb, apply for fast track, I know someone completed everything in 60 days... waiting for the call now....

      • anyone can enlighten me whats the differences between Direct Hire and regular one?

          Direct Hire goes to south west border only (Texas, AZ, CA). No choice. Regular one has more options to chose from when receiving the call.
