  • Does the Academy train both the CBP Officers and the CBP Agents differently?

    I asked what the standards are between CBPO and Border Patrol Agent earlier but my phrasing was weird so I apologize

    Posted updated to clarify between customs and border patrol officer and border patrol agent.

      There is no job series of "CBPA" or "CBP Agent".

      To answer your question...yes. Every law enforcement position in CBP has it's own distinct academy with different training based on different complexities and responsibilities within each job.

      merlin436 maybe he has seen a posting for CBP Agg specialist?

      Maybe. Aggies are not "agents". They are also not law enforcement.
      They also attend their own distinct academy.

      Border Patrol Agent academy is in Artesia, NM and much more difficult, physically. CBPO academy is in Glynco, GA and less difficult physically, more difficult academically.

  • Any 19-2 announcement for JFK receive email or call for the polygraph exam lately. Just trying to get a sense of timing.

      Hello, I used this forum quite a bit towards the end of my process and just wanted to share a couple of things.

      1. Even though they say calling and emailing does not help speed the process up, I seriously think it does. Every time I felt the process was no longer advancing I would email or call the appropriate department and within 2 weeks things would start moving again. Could have been a coincidence, but after 2 or 3 of these happening it made me think otherwise.

      2. I live in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas and was seriously hoping my location would be somewhere close to home due to several personal reasons. When I received THE CALL I was offered 3 locations in Texas that were a little further than I was hoping. It really was full of mixed emotions. Happy to finally have received the call, but not excited about the locations. Luckily I contacted a buddy that is currently employed with CBP and he suggested I called them back the following day and ask to speak to a Supervisor (Specialist) and simply explain the situation to them and see if anything could be done. After talking to the specialist and explaining the situation to them they told me that they would send a request to my preferred location but, nothing as far as how long it would take, or what their response would be was guaranteed. I assumed it would take at least two weeks to hear back from them due to how long the entire process took. Surprisingly, I received a call the next morning telling me the request to the city I wanted was accepted.

      TLDR; when offered locations, you still have SOME bargaining power, especially if you present them with valid reasons for wanting/needing a specific location. The least you can do is try and the most they can do is say no.

        Nice! Hope I get DT call this week.

    • Pennsylvania applicant, 50% complete and awaiting polygraph. I applied first week of May 2019...9 months in.

      Would someone be so kind to provide me the Credibility Assessment Division email address and/or an email address to a CBP recruiter in PA? I emailed the [email protected] address found here: https://www.cbp.gov/careers/frontlin...cbpo/recruiter but I have not received a response.

      Thank you for your time and any information you can provide me

        [email protected] , and the baltimore recruiter email is correct. She probably is out for vacation... she is ok. PA_Ed unfortunately , you will only get generic response from ICAD and recruiter cannot help anything with poly wait..... Poly wait is brutal for some people man, we just have to wait it out... I know how you feel man, I had to wait 50 weeks for poly myself, you applied in May 2019 so its not that bad yet. Good luck bro

        Florida_Man - thank you sir

        V_AntCBP - Thank you bro, I hope all is well with you, I always think of you when I come to this thread because I know we began waiting been waiting for what feels like forever at a similar point, lol.

        Page - I sincerely appreciate your time and insight, you pose some great points and I have to say I agree with you. In the eyes of CBP, our wait times are all normal/expected and not a "pressing matter". Good response

    • Did my SI 2/26/2019 and still waiting for a poly. Seeing applicants who applied a few months ago and already ahead of me is beyond ridiculous. But I guess good things come to those who wait..

          I did the same and was informed that they use a 100 mile radius by default if locally not available. Just from reading through the forum seems like it’s a one year mark to be scheduled. I really don’t know. Just making some sense of it.

      • Captain's Log Day 52 of being in adjudication. No signs of getting out. Continue going forward day by day. Will attempt to make contact by the end of the week if nothing happens.

        • Seems like many of us have emailed poly

            That is true at the same time I have read once offered at a different location if you can make it work it’s better to accept the different location because it seems they are backlogged especially for north and southeast region.
