    Thanks for the response. I’m considering a pair of Bates, Danners or Thorogoods. By any chance have you tried any of those brands?

      Couldn't comment on those, I bought me a pair of 511s. I'm sure bates or danners are fine. All comes down to comfort in my opinion.

      I find Bates blowout sooner then others. I'm rocking some 5.11s now and love the nylon shank.

  • Thorogoods are very good quality however, expensive. From my experience good quality shoes or boots protect one’s feet.
    Just an opinion, with years of wearing boots in the Marines and standing watch or a foot post.

    • I finally heard back from OPR, brought up some incidents from 7+ years ago. Gonna submit my response and hopefully hear something good by next week.

        You’ve been in process for over 2 years and this is just coming up now? Did you opt for provisional clear and have a EOD? Or you waiting for BI to clear to get offer?

        stuff came up in my poly and what not and I explained them. now they want some info on them.

    • Pretty much any black boot with a polishable toe from a reputable manufacturer will do at the academy. Unless you are greatly attached to spending huge sums of money on a boot, I'd put off on spending a huge amount on a duty boot until you spend enough time at your port to get a good understanding on just what you'll be doing for your first few years at work.

      • You can buy a pair of Under Armour Stellar Tactical Side Zip Boots for 85$, they are lightweight and hold a shine. In my 7+ years in LE, I find them most comfortable.

Good luck all!

            HopefulBP , I also took two before finishing my process. Polygraph Officer passed me both times, but the first one QC didn't like. So I took a second one. It's not always a bad thing...... I think :P

        • Hello to all, havent been here in a little while. Just recieved my offer letter for EOD. I EOD April 13th in Philly. Academy on April 27th. My question was does anyone have any idea of the schedule or amount of overtime in philly? If anyone has any other questions i will try to do my best to answer.

          • Hello All! I’m sorry if this has been asked already. Does anyone know how much time they allow for traveling to Academy. I EOD June 11, and academy on June 26, but planning on driving to bring my vehicle. Thanks for the help.

              It's usually one day of travel time. People coming in from far distances or difficult travel situations will get more.

              Ask your port if they'll work with you as far as scheduling goes to allow you to drive. They might approve annual leave or schedule your travel day alongside your days scheduled off.

              merlin436 Great, thanks! My drive is a good 24 hrs from where I’ll be so I’m sure they’ll work with me, just didn’t want to be rushing. Appreciate you.

          • My polygraph is coming up pretty fast, like one of the most nerve wrecking things I have ever dealt with. Wish me luck.

              Nerve racking it waiting 12+ months to be scheduled for the polygraph - at this point to me I could care less about the polygraph itself in terms of nerves lol

              Thatoneguyoh Good luck. You’ll do fine.. I know I’ll be nervous when my time comes.. considering the fact I applied back in 12/2018.. if it’s meant to be, it’ll be for you

              You will be fine. Just stay positive.

          • I want to share my experience throughout this painful process.. I applied back in December of 2018 (19-3).. I’ve been working at TSA for 7 years and was the heaviest I’ve ever been my whole life (325). I told myself that I was going to change my life and stop letting my weight get in the way of where I wanted to be. 14 months later and no polygraph I weigh 250 and have lost 75 pounds. I also recently applied to USSS Uniform Division thanks to my new healthy lifestyle, a job I would of never applied to because of my weight. A part of me is glad the process has taken so long so I can buy as much time as I could. Everybody out there stay patient, we will eventually move forward to the next step. Keep pushing and don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

          • Has anyone ever had a NOPA for anger issues as they call it from when they were in high school or college? Like 7+ years ago kind of issues.

              I could see that being an issue especially if they were documented as a minor and as an adult.

              sadly they were never documented, I was just being overly honest and they saw it as an issue that needed to be addressed... but if they're hitting me with a NOPA I'm still being considered so I guess its ok

          • @ all applicants that applied back in 2018 just curious to see if anyone has been scheduled for the polygraph exam lately seems like we are the forgotten group. Lol or the shutdown really put us on the back of the list. Who knows but anyway let’s see what transpires this month. Any feedback is always appreciated.

              19-3 JFK. Waiting to be scheduled for Poly as well. SI completed 4/2019.
              It is just high volume and examiner availability, so it may take some time to complete. We have to wait it out and our time will come.

              Thanks for sharing your timelines seems like no rhyme or reason. The wait continues.

          • Has anyone ever been contacted like this? It seems most people get cleared without knowing about it or being contacted about their background. Now I'm wondering if I'm close or if they're going to hit me with a NOPA. Screenshot_20200302-143710_Chrome.jpg
