  • I just received an email and voicemail stating that they're going to send me a fingerprint kit. Is this standard procedure? They already took my prints at my structured interview. This seems pretty redundant and a bit annoying honestly. I am glad though that my application is moving forward..

      sometimes fingerprints taken at SI can get "corrupted" or whatever so they send you a manual packet. just go to your local police department, have them do your prints and mail it back overnight so you dont lose anymore time. it happens, it happened to me .

      and make sure you put everything on their list on the print cards. I'd have your dept do a test print with their own cards first to make sure it's perfect. Because they will send you 2 cards and they want them both returned with al the information on them they want.

  • Hey guys 17-10 (location negotiable) here posting again. I got an update today saying my background was cleared and I was found suitable. After almost 2 years. From the beginning having issues with Eqip, not signing up for selective service having to jump a hurdle there with a letter from the government, taking the Polygraph not 1, not 2 times but 3 times and waiting 5 months for the background to clear. Theres finally a light at the end of the tunnel. Just drug test and finally the call. For all those out there keep going your time will come. Hoping to get Philadelphia.

      Evolution81 what was PT like? I’ve heard mixed things - some day it’s a complete joke (perhaps they are gym rats) and some say it was pure cardio based with mat room stuff mixed in?

      Evolution81 what were they sent home for? Was it like they just couldn't do it?. Im not the best at Cardio i can knock out 30 pushups easy in 1 minute my running is om for now, but im working on that part of it right now before i get there. Anything else we need to watch out for? I know how you feel about going from giving orders to tsking orders. Ive besn giving orders as a supervisor for 15 years so its going to be a change. But ill adjust.

      Pt is not hard just make sure you're not completely out of shape when you show up..make sure you can run without stopping before you get to the academy so you can work on speed...re cycle means get washed out and they send you again when you heal...you have 3 chances to pass the final fgs..if you cannot pass you are terminated..some people are able to come back but it's rare now...they aren't recycling people like they used too

  • Finally got a call for my poly after months of waiting

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

    • 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?

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

        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??

        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.

          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.
