              • Hey guys, so I did some searching and it seems it is best if you start studying this immigration classifications and visa categories.

                http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/usc...0048f3d6a1RCRD


                My plan is to make note cards and then carry it around with me and try to remember them when I have free time.

                To those that have already been to FLETC...is it true that we will need to remember these immigration classifications and visa categories by heart? What other materials should we study before FLETC so we can get a head start? Thanks!

                  Glad you put this up I will make note cards when I get home. There's quite a bit to remember. Actually if there's any FLETC material that we could start looking over like laws, rules and regs that be awesome to know.

                      The problem is not for them to go through the whole thread before posting (which I and many others have done), but that they ask a question that has been answered a couple of pages back... meaning that if they at least read 2 or 3 pages before posting, they would've probably gotten an answer. We're all in here trying to help each other out through the whole "hurry up and wait" process, but it bothers me somewhat that some people seem to post on the thread just because the name of it is "CBP Officer" without even taking the time to catch up to a current discussion or to see if their question has been asked/answered. I mean the thread has been active for a few years now, since its original post...

                      now that we have all voiced our opinions on this... lets move on
                      Swear to god this argument pops up every 10-15 pages or so. Heh.

                      • After having utilized the "search" function, I retract my question regarding clearance. Although it is interesting and understandable to point out the clearance is not the same TS/SCI that a FBI SA would receive. Then again, the natures of the work are different.

                          I believe it qualifies you for up to and including TS/SCI

                              (b) Treatment of Service Performed by Incumbents-

                              (1) LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER AND SERVICE DESCRIBED-

                              (A) LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER- Any reference to a law enforcement officer described in this paragraph refers to an individual who satisfies the requirements of section 8331(20) or 8401(17) of title 5, United States Code (relating to the definition of a law enforcement officer) by virtue of the amendments made by subsection (a).

                              (B) SERVICE- Any reference to service described in this paragraph refers to service performed as a law enforcement officer (as described in this paragraph).

                              (2) INCUMBENT DEFINED- For purposes of this subsection, the term `incumbent' means an individual who--

                              (A) is first appointed as a law enforcement officer (as described in paragraph (1)) before the date of the enactment of this Act; and

                              (B) is serving as such a law enforcement officer on such date.

                              (3) TREATMENT OF SERVICE PERFORMED BY INCUMBENTS-

                              (A) IN GENERAL- Service described in paragraph (1) which is performed by an incumbent on or after the date of the enactment of this Act shall, for all purposes (other than those to which subparagraph (B) pertains), be treated as service performed as a law enforcement officer (within the meaning of section 8331(20) or 8401(17) of title 5, United States Code, as appropriate), irrespective of how such service is treated under subparagraph (B).

                              (B) RETIREMENT- Service described in paragraph (1) which is performed by an incumbent before, on, or after the date of the enactment of this Act shall, for purposes of subchapter III of chapter 83 and chapter 84 of title 5, United States Code, be treated as service performed as a law enforcement officer (within the meaning of such section 8331(20) or 8401(17), as appropriate), but only if an appropriate written election is submitted to the Office of Personnel Management within 5 years after the date of the enactment of this Act or before separation from Government service, whichever is earlier.

                              (4) INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTIONS FOR PRIOR SERVICE-

                              (A) IN GENERAL- An individual who makes an election under paragraph (3)(B) may, with respect to prior service performed by such individual, contribute to the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund the difference between the individual contributions that were actually made for such service and the individual contributions that should have been made for such service if the amendments made by subsection (a) had then been in effect.

                              (B) EFFECT OF NOT CONTRIBUTING- If no part of or less than the full amount required under subparagraph (A) is paid, all prior service of the incumbent shall remain fully creditable as law enforcement officer service, but the resulting annuity shall be reduced in a manner similar to that described in section 8334(d)(2) of title 5, United States Code, to the extent necessary to make up the amount unpaid.

                              (C) PRIOR SERVICE DEFINED- For purposes of this subsection, the term `prior service' means, with respect to any individual who makes an election under paragraph (3)(B), service (described in paragraph (1)) performed by such individual before the date as of which appropriate retirement deductions begin to be made in accordance with such election.

                              (5) GOVERNMENT CONTRIBUTIONS FOR PRIOR SERVICE-

                              (A) IN GENERAL- If an incumbent makes an election under paragraph (3)(B), the agency in or under which that individual was serving at the time of any prior service (referred to in paragraph (4)) shall remit to the Office of Personnel Management, for deposit in the Treasury of the United States to the credit of the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund, the amount required under subparagraph (B) with respect to such service.

                              (B) AMOUNT REQUIRED- The amount an agency is required to remit is, with respect to any prior service, the total amount of additional Government contributions to the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund (above those actually paid) that would have been required if the amendments made by subsection (a) had then been in effect.

                              (C) CONTRIBUTIONS TO BE MADE RATABLY- Government contributions under this paragraph on behalf of an incumbent shall be made by the agency ratably (on at least an annual basis) over the 10-year period beginning on the date referred to in paragraph (4)(C).

                              (6) EXEMPTION FROM MANDATORY SEPARATION- Nothing in section 8335(b) or 8425(b) of title 5, United States Code, shall cause the involuntary separation of a law enforcement officer (as described in paragraph (1)) before the end of the 3-year period beginning on the date of the enactment of this Act.

                              (7) REGULATIONS- The Office shall prescribe regulations to carry out this section, including--

                              (A) provisions in accordance with which interest on any amount under paragraph (4) or (5) shall be computed, based on section 8334(e) of title 5, United States Code; and

                              (i) any individual who--

                              (I) satisfies subparagraph (A) (but not subparagraph (B)) of paragraph (2); and

                              (II) serves as a law enforcement officer (as described in paragraph (1)) after the date of the enactment of this Act; and

                              (ii) any individual entitled to a survivor annuity (based on the service of an incumbent, or of an individual under clause (i), who dies before making an election under paragraph (3)(B)), to the extent of any rights that would then be available to the decedent (if still living).

                              (8) RULE OF CONSTRUCTION- Nothing in this subsection shall be considered to apply in the case of a reemployed annuitant.

                              • so does section 642 say that there are going to be criminal investigator positions in the customs department? i wonder if it is going to be like the special agent criminal investigator position in ICE. that would be sweet.
