  • fonzi7979 Originally announcement 18-10 San Francisco, CA. Also a BP applicant for the Arizona corridor. Later reapplied to 20-2 Newark, NJ. I lived in AZ many years ago then moved to NJ and I had plans to go back to AZ but my family and I decided it was better to stay in NJ for now and we can always transfer later on, assuming I get hired

        Some debt that i had to cleared up.

    • Hello all,

      18-12 here. Took my poly in November of 2018 and met my investigator in June of 2019. It's been quiet ever since until today I received a call from CHS asking for something (they left a message and I couldn't understand them, will call tomorrow) so I decided to check my app and my background was clear! I assume to schedule the drug test or maybe redo medical because it's been so long?

      Here's the 'problem,' I applied in August of 18 so while it's not as long as some here it's been quite the process. I recently got accepted for my states Counter Drug Task Force for the National Guard for 1 year. I start these orders next week, of course things that take years to evolve seem to come to head within a week of one another.

      I hate to turn CBP down because I do want this job and I've waited so long and seem to be at the end of the process. Obviously, location has not been discussed and is a huge factor in my decision.

      Any advice? I have orders in hand so they can hold my application but I feel like after a year I have to redo medical, poly, etc. I mine as well re-apply anyway. Is there any way I can do the drug test and discuss location and they can schedule me for the academy after my orders are up? As odd and ironic as this sounds, I don't want to string them along but I also don't want to turn down this opportunity.

      Thank you!

        They only thing they will make you do again is the medical. When they make you redo things again is when you re apply. If its for the Drug Test you are already in the clear.

        I found out yesterday that my BI was last touched on 12/23/19. I was originally announcement 18-10 San Francisco, and reapplied to 20-2 Newark NJ.

    • V_AntCBP there are pretty good areas and most important is if you and your family would be comfortable in this weather. I like Jersey a lot, cold weather...love it, just one very important down side is the cost of living. If you compare it with NY costs living here is a breeze. However, rent is high and properties are costly, the closer to the city (NY) the higher the prices are. There are great areas within 15-20 miles west of EWR ( Newark Airport) very clean, spacious properties, front lawn, backyards, very safe, and great for parents with little ones

        TsFost I chose Memphis only because it was neither north or the border..I'm from NC so it was the closest to me..I heard it is a Mega Hub for FedEx

        klocklear86 Maybe so, but I will say Memphis is #4 on both USATodays, and Forbes most violent cities of 2019 list. When I worked at my local SO I would hate doing transports to there from my county close to Nashville. Good luck all the same man. If possible I'd reach out to officers there and see what locations they would recommend to look at for homes.

    • Got the Final Offer Letter, EOD 1/28 JFK and FLETC 2/12 class 520. Anyone gonna be in the same class?

        I was 17-10 also but failed the poly in Feb. of 18. Can finally reapply next month. Can't wait. Hopefully the new poly is a better test. The examiner told me after 8 hours of testing that I failed every section! That's when I knew the test was bull****.

        moquito26 8 hours of interrogation I am amazed of what I have been reading on this forum in regards to the polygraph exam... some say it was straight forward and others felt like it never ended.

    • A shame they don't use credit scores as a way to pick people to take the polygraph - lol wishful thinking I suppose.

        Which email did you use, might as well give it a try.

    • V_AntCBP West of Newark, NJ you'll have Caldwell (West Caldwell, North Caldwell, Summit, Wayne, Cedar Grove ) South (Woodbridge, New Brunswick/South Brunswick. All these are more or less a 25 to 30 min drive. These are quiet areas..
