  • After you received an email for your Equip “notice of release to OPR”, does this means that equip is cleared and you should get the green check on the app?? Or what does it mean exactly? Also, what’s the next step after that?

      In my case it cleared few days later, and the next step is poly for me, still waiting on the call/ email for poly.

      I’ve been to fletc 4 times. When I get the final offer for CBP it’ll be 5. The Taj, building 187 is usually designed for 2 to a room. The director of FLETC told students when I was there they try to give single rooms to agencies that’ll be there the longest. So BOP and TSA often get double rooms. My last time there I was in the Hampton Inn my entire stag. At this time they had ppl in hotels as far as Savanah, GA and Jacksonville(but that was when the Taj was closed bc of the hurricane damage

      cepstein93 you're right, it is what it is. I'll just be happy to be with CBP. I appreciate your insight. I know when I went in 2012 they were putting some people in the local hotels. I guess they figured they can save money by putting 2 in a room. Well, I wanted to stay in the Taj mahal, but if they have roommates... then coooome on crack house.. Hope my neighbor has a good aim on the toilet lol.

      cepstein93 I have a question when going to academy, did you leave from your home of record or from your chosen port? I just trying to get ready..my home of record is 5hrs away from my chosen port. Thanks for answering..!

  • 19-3 Direct Hire. Received call this week to schedule Poly. Out of state number so my best advice is answer all calls. Hopefully all goes well. SW border is my location

        I applied 19-4 as well. I did my Polygraph on May 14th then had my interview with my background investigator on 5/29. As of right now I know she had interviewed about 6 or 7 of my references.

      • Thinking of applying for BOP, application closes in September. Been waiting since August for the Polly... sucks not being able to do anything on how slow this process is and how it makes no sense at all.

          BOP is always hiring. It's a decent gig just depends on what facility and security level you end up at.
          Drawback is as an officer you stop at a GS-7. You can apply for the GS-8, but its competitive.
          While CBP you progress up to a GS-12.

          BOP actually makes GL pay. Which, all other things being equal, boosts their pay for the first couple of years or so over OFO and standard GS pay.

          True it is GL. Curious though what is OFO?

          OFO...Office of Field Operations

          The component of CBP that virtually all CBP Officers work under.

          Baltimore wasn’t available for 19-4 and I didn’t want to risk it not being available if I make it through to an offer.

          Mine did the same. I have 2 active applications. One was at 50 and one at 38. I replyed to the email that had my applicant ID and they forwarded it to the fitness unit. It took a couple months but they finally updated the second one to 50%.

          Looks like it updated to 50% - back to patiently waiting

      • Anybody have any insight as to what the shifts are like in Baltimore (both airport and seaport)? Also as a newbie will I be sent straight to the airport? EOD 9/18/19, FLETC 10/3/19-2/20/19. Thanks in advance.

        • Hello all,
          Just a quick question,
          If a location is on my announcement at the time of applying, lets say Miami is on the announcement, 2 years later when I complete the process, you think they still honor that or whatever available at current time is what they will be offering... Regular announcement is what I'm asking...
          Thanks

            If Miami was an option when you applied it could still be an option. Miami is a huge port. Actually, it's two ports...one very big and one pretty big.

            Miami was on 19-2 when I applied. Swsports22 , I guess I could ask or argue that the port was on my announcement when I get the call merlin436 lol

            It looks like it’s going to be a long wait for the polygraph. They said anywhere from 16 weeks to a year.

            fonzi7979 where did you get that info from? Because I’m also waiting on a poly.

        • Does anyone know if they supply notebooks and flash cards and all your normal classroom supplies or do they sell on campus or we bring our own?

            The majority of class materials are on an issued Ipad. IIRC you get a note pad and some other stuff on the first day. Otherwise you can get anything you don't have at Walmart.
