  • Spoke with my Station contact, as of now I am still going to EOD as scheduled COVID be damned. Question for those that have EOD what is the attire for the pre academy, Polos? Buttonups? Slacks? I've lost about 50lbs since having to wear any kind of formal attire; need to know what to buy. Also; on the physical side; Im now completing the 1.5mi run in graduation standard. Current PR is 13:40. Looking forward to cutting that time down even further before i go to FLETC

      I wore black slacks and polos (grey, navy), then also wore my shined boots. My supervisor said she appreciated the professional appearance daily even with everything going on.

      My first day I wore a suit and tie. Always dress to impress and then let them tell you what to wear. You only get one first impression

      Going to sound Cliche; but diet and exercise. Cut out soda completely, increased water intake, decreased carb intake. Maximum 1900 Calories per day. Daily sets of Pushups at a minimum, combined with weights and a running program! Started at half an hour of walking, 4 times per week, M W F SA; built up to half an hour of running over 12 Weeks. I weigh less now and am in way better shape than I was in High School!

  • Hey guys, saw that NJ will allow non-essential businesses to open with limited capacity on June 15th and was wondering if polygraphers follow that time line. What do you guys think?

      @sliva23 oh I thought you all were the ones heading to SC for part of your training? I'm glad to see things rolling again because I wanna get done lol.

      Kevin1234 did they give you all a new packing list since nobody is allowed to go off base?

      Heading there tomorrow. Lots of rumors on what actually is true and what’s not about the reopening. Some of my buds who are there now have said that you can actually leave at your own risk of being denied entry.

      As far as a packing list, I mean..pack like you are going somewhere for 5 months and have no access to the outside. Pretty much a military deployment before they got all fancy with the bull**** base exchanges. Chances are you will have a way to get daily necessities off base, but bring them anyway. The **** you personally need, black undershirts (highly recommend some type of drifit/hot weather gear), black boots, bug spray, highly recommend a water filter as the tap water is awful, some shower shoes, whatever your personal form of off time entertainment is.

      SheepDogg there is a schedule floating around of when all classes are coming back. I know 519 is the last class to report to FLETC (520-523 go to Charleston first). 519 has a grad date of 8/29.

  • I’m 539 so I got a long wait..... just trying to get things in order

    • TsFost To be honest they gave us a long asd thing which I haven't even read yet, my suitcase were never unpacked so I dont have to do much packaging. And my friends in my session whose driving are buying groceries for us. I'm flying. So we basically gave our session mates grocery lists. I'll read those emails tomorrow. Thr only thing I did was book my Travel.

      • Hey everyone, long time reader here!! I'm 19-4 and I just checked CASS and noticed my BI finally has a green check mark. I just had a question for those who've recently gotten "the call"or anyone who can help in general....

        The locations to choose from...does it automatically give you an EOD/academy date.....or do you receive that AFTER you've picked your location?

        I just was curious if location played a role in EOD/academy dates.

          They will call you with a proposed EoD and list of locations. Unless your VRA your options are to accept or deny. Dates are not based on location.

          Also Academy dates mean nothing right now, as I'm sure you have read previous posts about many who have already started and are waiting for a new class.

      • Oh yeah, I’ve been reading for a while...the hiring process was already a waiting game and now this..... just was curious about the process is all, thanks for your help!!

            SPX I’m with you still waiting to get scheduled for the polygraph exam. Interesting I received an email informing me that my medical has been completed I did that back in December 2018 maybe it’s a good sign that the poly will begin scheduling again.

            K-9Unit Florida is nice I’d love that but going to ask for JFK maybe if possible in the future ask for a transfer. No poly yet I’m still waiting to be scheduled for that but I received a call that my file is not lost and I also recently received email confirmation that my medical is completed. Very weird I did my medical back in December 2018. Just trying to keep positive and taking everything with a grain of salt. Good luck to you maybe we will see each other at training one day.

        • Is there any timeline on medical waivers for very minor high frequency hearing loss when you're already a LEO? They said several weeks and I know Covid has everything backed up. Its coming up on 2 months and i would like to rejoin the active applicant pool. Thanks in advance.

            I've been waiting about the same for an uncorrected vision waiver. Hopefully they won't take too much longer. I'm vra and a current fed leo and hope to be hired on sometime before FY21...wishful thinking.

        • What is the policy of boots wore at Fletc? I am looking to bring my own. I know that you have to able to polish them. Is there a height requirement or no zipper rule. Females are limited to what is available compared to males.

            if they polish they are fine, they don't care about height or zippers from what anyone has ever posted.

            no height or zipper rules, your pants will be dropped over them anyway, its not the military, your pants won't be tucked into the boots. Just make sure they can take polish. High polish, when you have inspection, you won't want to be that person with a dull boots or belt, they will yell in your face, say all sorts of **** to you, and if you don't have thick skin, you will either, cry or quit. I've seen it with my own eyes, they might even give you an EDR. most importantly, make sure them suckers can shine. Other than that, you'll be fine. They mainly do inspections when you have DNC, you'll know when you have to get the spit shiny.

        • I have a general question for cbpo fit test. Fletc website shows peb requirements based on age/gender etc.....same format military uses. When I received my final confirmation from my duty location it didn’t say all the areas on the fletc website for fitness requirement. It said the 220 yd dash in 45 sec 24 pushups in a min and under and 1.5 mile in 15 min or under. It said these are the pass requirements. Is it just one standard for everyone? Either way is fine, but would like to know actual requirements.

            @ invertedPanda So what is the peb chart on the fletc website for fitness? It has body press and percentages.

          • invertedPanda

            Probably just the FLETC standards. Some agencies may use it if they don't get an approved alternative fitness test.

        • Looking for a little clarity on this. I’m looking on the CBP website and it says a GS9 can make, “be promoted in June 2022 to GS-9 and make $52,905 - $97,905 per year” That is a $45,000 range and more than my military salary. Is that completely dependent on overtime being made? Locality to where you are stationed? Could someone shed some light on if you actually make 45k in overtime pay? Is that common? Appreciate the input.

            Yea that is all dependent on overtime, locality pay and shift differential.
            On this website u can find the base pay with locality so you know what will the minimum be before including shift diff, OT, etc.
