      lol what you do? spd2008 When investigator came to my job to interview people, my boss knew i wanted to leave... but he probably thought I didn't get the job or something... so he never mentioned again... I'm not gonna tell them until im ready...2 weeks notice is all im gonna give them..... Don't let them know way early man, they may fire you on spot and its too early for you... just tell them you don't know...you are not sure

    18-8 DH and 19-2 Regular,
    After almost 21 months in, finally I got THE CALL... 952 area code number...

    By having a Regular announcement, They offered me pretty much all locations (not VRA) available at the moment. Seattle, SFO, EWR, JFK, Chicago, Detroit Land borders, Canadian borders (MN, Montana, N Dakota, Washington State Land borders, Maine, Vermont,) and of course SW borders like CA, AZ, TX, NM....
    I had a list of locations I like but unfortunately non of them available: FL (Tampa, Orlando or Miami), NC, DFW and IAH (TX), Salt Lake City, Denver, Las Vegas, Washington Dulles, Portland Oregon, Detroit Airport,

    They gave me 24hrs to think and pick a location. After carefully consideration,I will pick Seattle (not sure if its airport or sea port- they said I would find out couple weeks before EOD???? , airport or sea port will be assigned by OFO where needed the most??? ok whatever I guess),

    EOD July 6th, Fletc July 21 (If you have the same EOD, pm me so we can help each other at Fletc)

    For those of you who are still in process, don't give up, hang in there, your time will come. Good luck all
    Congrats. I'll already be at FLETC at the time but hmu when you get there and we can grab a drink at the G bar

      V_AntCBP yeah I was granted provisional but it’s nerve wrecking when my bi still isn’t clear I know I have nothing to worry about so it shouldn’t be a problem and I will keep you all updated this was a long process but it’s all worth it

        There are multiple FLETCs...but only one has basic CBPO training...Glynco, GA.

        It is not odd to see multiple CBPO classes start during a week...if the demand is there for them.

        merlin436 that’s interesting. I hope we aren’t doubled up in the rooms, but it is what it is. I’ve been trying to find out what we need to buy or even take with us. I like to prepare now and shop around instead of waiting for the last minute.

        They may double up as needed. They may start buying up nearby motel rooms.

        As far as what to bring, I don't know of an actual official list but if you just focus on the common sense stuff, there's a Walmart and Target nearby, along with othe retailers, for more specific needs.

    • Almost 5 months past SI here, I don't post a lot just patiently waiting for poly test, so I have one question I recently applied for the Census got accepted, did my fingerprints today and also today I received an email saying my background is clear and to do my Onboarding right away, so my question is, do you think this might help getting into CBP since this is also a federal job ?

        The SSBI/Tier 5 background vets people for a TS clearance...however, very few CBPOs actually have an active TS clearance.

        I only know this becuz I have a secret but it's useless in this process, took me 4 months to get adjudicated for a secret

    • Question to anyone currently at FLETC, do you guys get paid base pay then when you go to your duty station, that's when you get locality? or do they just give you base? Need to figure out funding issues as this would make a large dent...

      Talked to the recruiter my file was touched on 1/14. Hope that means it's getting closer. He told me even if they called tomorrow it would be August at the earliest for a school date.

        the call probably tomorrow or Monday... they cleared my drug and i got the call 2 days later...

    • I would think you get paid based on where your port or your duty station is. Not everyone in GA for example gets paid the same amount, if you're around Atlanta area then you get way more money than they rest of the state due to locality

        you get paid on your ports locality. there is a 2020 GS graph on the CBP website. Look up your location and viola you have your answer. Also some have way higher localities then others, and some are just put on the general locality pay list (like the city I chose Brownsville), whereas Houston has about double the locality.

    • I am a 19-8 and starting at port in Alexandria Bay, NY February 7th,2020 and my first day of classes at the academy is Monday February 24th, 2020. Anyone else have these dates? I just got my final letter as well.

      Anyone buy stuff yet for academy?

      Can anyone do the 24 pushups in a minute? HAHA. I can't...oh this academy is going to kick my butt.

      I still have yet to decide if I am going to fly down or drive. Thinking if I drive my car it will be to easy to leave when things get "tough".

      Anyone else have academy dates the same as me? My class number is 522.

        Form my experience in law enforcement. The lighter the boot the better. Money spent on boots is an investment down the road oz's make a difference. You can get good boots for less than 100 bucks

        Just make sure that they are polishable. You will be on your feet more than you’d think, so try to get something comfortable. Unsure on the steel toe portion, I wouldn’t come here with them though personally.
