      I'm 19-6 still at 38%. My Equip is still in review.

  • I have received a job offer but I turned it down because they wanted to send me to Academy without my background being completed I was running the risk of getting sent back from the Academy if they found something on my background that they didn’t like I applied back in November and I’m done with everything except the final background

      Jr90037 that’s because you most likely signed a provisional offer depending on the results of the background. I mean if it was me I would I have went because I know I have nothing to hide in my past. Do you have anything in your past that they would disqualify you?

      You're more than likely good to go. Unless you know of something disqualifying that you omitted, you shouldn't have any concern. Many officers attend academy on a provisional. The only ones removed are clear cut and due to blatant integrity issues. You can probably call back and get that academy spot. They've already completed the provisional investigation and concluded that you're a very low risk of failing the remaining background.

      A suspension isn't uncommon. As long as it's not for something unforgivable (which it isn't or you'd be terminated), they'll look at it on a case by case basis. As long as you don't have a repeat history of engaging in the conduct that resulted in the suspension, you should be fine. Also, if you disclosed it, it's very likely that they already looked into it prior to extending the provisional clearance. The government doesn't want to waste money onboarding you unless they're almost certain that you'll clear. Just food for thought. If you want to be absolutely certain, there's nothing wrong with waiting. Good luck.

      Hello, Do you know if federal authorities such as CBP get the same MTA free transportation privileges as local and state cops in nyc?

      I'm so jealous, I'm for queens NY too. How long did you wait for your poly date?

  • JDalhoff , you’re still in a gs 12 position, just starting at a lower scale. Gs 5,7,9,11,12 that is your progression every year and then step promotion at 12 to step 9.

    • Evolution81 Did he outright say you "passed" or was it some other way? I just have an issue that my guy would only say the poly "It looks good" but then ask me if I were to get a call to retest if I would be interested.

      Is mentioning the QC review and explaining about retests but then still recertifying the EQUIP and saying the poly results looked good, all part of the procedure?

        barnes14 my examiner had told me there were a couple subjects in question and would I be willing to take a 2nd poly if QC deemed so.

        2 days later the examiner emailed me saying QC said I passed.

      • I was at 50% and got an e-mail saying that my application was withdrawn because I was seemed unsuitable for the position pursuant to 5 C.F.R. Part 731. Anybody know what that could be? I have no criminal history or anything like that

          Might be due to drug use in the last 12 months which you indicated on your Eqip. I believe you posted recently regarding this and wanting to change your answer.

          I emailed and they basically said the same thing twice. And the drug use could be it but the way they wrote it down is as if they found something, not based on my answers. Who knows, I'll try again in the future. I do have a different address for my billing address for my bank and I did not put that down as residing address because I never lived there, but highly doubt that's it. I applied for a TSO position, do you think they could not take me because of this?

          You'd have to just go to the MTA and ask around. I know a few NYPD friends and a PhillyPD that just wave their badge and they just get on. I assume it's the same for feds as long as they acknowledge your badge. Kind of like the NYPD pardon cards.

            I just got Chicago and it took about 6 weeks after I met my BI to clear and I got it. Also with the expansion of Chicago international terminal it’s actually a high demand. Like not like AZ and CA but I have a friend there and she said they are hurting also Chicago has 2 international Airports

          3rd year = gs 9
          4th y ear = gs 11
          beginning of 5th year = gs 12?

            The even level pay scale grades are not used below the GS-12 level as far as CBPOs go.
