      Add in 30 more training days for Spanish if it's relevant to your port assignment.

  • Hey folks,

    Any CBPO working at sky harbor airport Phoenix? Wanted to know about hours, OT, career progression and living conditions in Phoenix for a married guy.

    Thank you in advance.

        good God, thats crazy man, it shouldn't take that long... [email protected] try to email this address to see if they can help, sometime I wonder some of people's files got lost during process or something man.....

    • Do they pepper spray u in this academy? And do you get your duty weapon/credentials at graduation or is it given to you at your port?

        @tsfrost do CBPO’s carry tasers? Never saw one on their duty belt.

        Not every CBPO carries a Taser. A significant minority does.

        merlin436 thanks. Do you know if they plan on implementing tasers for every officer?

        I doubt that. There are nearly 24,000 CBPOs. Issuing Tasers to everyone would involve significant expense and likely wouldn't match up to even the most generous costs/benefits analyses.

    • Good Morning,

      For the people who are EOD'ing soon, have you received your pre academy packets yet?

    • What does the firearm training for CBP officer entail? How different is it from the firearm training for CBPA?

        I'm not sure a listing of comprehensive firearms training has been released as public information. The Use of Force Policy has been released and the various CBP firearm qualifications are available with a Google search.

    • Quick question to anyone that can answer. I just noticed my medical exam just expired and I should be called for the drug test very soon. I know i have to redo my exam i just wanted to know do i have to go and do the whole physical again or is it just a form or something i have ti fill out saying nothings changed??

      Thanks to anyone that can answer.

        I had to re verify my medical too, they just send you some paperwork asking different medical questions just to know if you’ve gotten any medical procedures done or if anything has changed with your health. It took all of 5 minutes for me to fill out and then you just email it back to them. They cleared me the day after I sent the paperwork back.

    • First time post and have not applied for this position yet. However I have recently received my final offer for the Border Patrol. Upon reviewing the pay and overtime opportunities for this position vs what the Border Patrol offers I am considering applying. Does anyone know if any of my Border Patrol process will transfer and speed up the hiring process with this position? Or will they basically have to start over?

        Sink123. I applied for both and the things that transfer are the e-QIP, Medical exam and Poly. You would have to do the entrance exam, which CBPO entrance exam consists of 3 portions (Logic, Arithmetic, and writing), the fitness test which is easier than BPA, and do Structured Interview with CBPO. I'm currently in the BI phase, so I'm not sure yet if that phase would be for both. Hope this helps

    • Does anyone work for CBP in Chicago or in the process for the Chicago location or in the academy for the Chicago location, I have a few questions.

      I wanted to know what is the schedule like for the Chicago location, how many are they looking to hire, how long have you been in the process for it?

      I applied back in June of 2018 and it’s been over a year. I’m on the direct hire list, passed the interview, physical and my eye sight was an issue with the medical review unit. I did a medical waiver and it was forwarded to the board. My background check was forwarded to OPR and it will be a year in December with that process. I’m at 38% with the process.

          Yes, seems that CBP began sending that communication out last week. I'm 18-6 and got that email last week.

          I am 19-8, 50% complete and I as well thought this was my polygraph notification LOL
          Its certainly a step in the right direction, this process needs an overhaul at some point to speed things up.

          PA_Ed Glad I was not the only one who thought it was the Poly email. I agree it definitely is a step in the right direction especially if you don't know about this forum there are so many questions to the process. I just wish they would hire more polygraph examiners on a temp basis and get the wait back down to 5 to 6 months.


      • 19-1 Reg Hire

        YES!!!

        My medical cleared and I'm finally at 50% completed.

        It's a small step further but for me it's a big one. I had lasik done back in July and have been waiting to get the green check on my tracker.

        I'm going to give it a week and then be proactive and start emailing about the Polygraph.

        My SI was 11/2018 so hopefully that will help expedite the wait but of course the poly wait time is a mystery for everyone.

          standtheman - Yeah, you're one month ahead of me. That's crazy. My 1 year will be next month but it looks like that's the norm around here so I'm rooting for you because hopefully that means I'll follow shortly.

      • Si had been one year already... and iam still waiting for poly

          Yep, that's the 1 year mark alright. Well then, based on other applicants your wait time for the poly will be somewhere between 1 week to 1.5 years. Make sure to check your email.
