I've been waiting for a TO as a CBPO for ND, I'm thinking either a TO is coming for the CBPO position or they just screwed up. Any thoughts? I'll call MHC on Monday to find out for sure... Just wanted to see if this has happened to anyone else.
    I would think youre getting a t.o. Check and see if youre in CASS for cbpo.

      Smurfs are just a cheapo version of a cbp uniform that you were at fletc when you do "dirty" things, like going to the range, arrest techniques etc. They are recycled so you'd be wearing a set that someone probably wore at fletc 5 yrs ago. You get a dress uniform for graduation, and you can wear the cbp ball cap with your uniform

      • I don't believe new hires are wearing 'smurfs' any more, at least not CBPO's.

        These are true 'smurfs'.

              • Much like the current 'crackhouses' aren't the real 'crackhouses', the current 'smurfs' aren't the real 'smurfs'. Go figure.

                Hopefully the chicken never changes.

                • LOL the chicken will be forever!! It's the FLETC mascot.

                      • For those of you who recently got the call. Everything but my medical and drug test have cleared. Only took medical right before Christmas. I called MHC and they said it takes at least three - four weeks to clear. I took my drug test last Tuesday and I assume that will clear either this week or next. I have my TO for New York other.

                        I have 2 questions:

                        1.) Does anyone have any insight as to how soon I may receive the call? It seems like they have been calling like crazy recently.

                        2.) Would it be off base to ask if there are any openings in the Buffalo sector if and when they do call? It is not what I applied for, but is it worth asking?

                        Thanks everyone!!

                        Oh yeah...Does anyone have any pics of the dress uniform and winter uniform CBPO's wear?

                          Strangely, I had to take two drug test about a few weeks apart. I think they were trying to test me...

                            If background is clear, I think it should be no more than a month or two. Medical doesn't take that long. I know I had to send additional info from my physician and it took like 2-3 weeks after that. Drug test was the fastest, took like 1-2 weeks. I'm waiting for qualifications and background.

                            • Grooming standards at FLETC

                              Does anyone know the details on the grooming standards at FLETC? As far as shaving and facial hair go?

                              My problem is that I have really sensitive skin, especially around the neck area, and if I shave more than once a week it gets really cut up (starts bleeding etc.) and irritated. If I got a doctors note would that allow me to bypass the standard (if there is one?).

                                Yes there are standards and facial hair is a no go. Not sure about the doctors note/waiver deal.
